What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God...is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our story

Beginning in 1952, the name of the church was McDonough First Assembly with an incredible heritage of spirit-filled believers. In September 2019,  the lead pastor and our church staff hired an incredible kids pastor and student pastor.
During the pandemic we chose to make our challenges opportunities to grow and change.
We implemented a live stream ministry and partnered with a private Montessori School to better serve our local community. Now that God has sustained us, we are a growing, multi-generational,
multi-cultural congregation here in South Atlanta.  Now that we are post pandemic, we have been reaching out with Love to our community and have connected with other incredible Kingdom-minded churches and organizations and we are growing! Our goal is to be a healthy place for families or any person to feel loved and connect with us as we bring life to McDonough!

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Life Church McDonough based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
