Our Beliefs


Our vision is to see the transforming power of the Gospel spread throughout Pittsburgh and to the nations.

Our mission is to make disciples and start new churches that will also make disciples.

What is living faith? Simply put, it’s faith that is alive. Living faith isn’t about religion or rules. Neither is it simply being good or having good intentions. A living faith is vibrant and growing.

At LFCC, we’ve adopted the following core values that paint a picture of what the Bible says living faith looks like:

Core Value 1: Living faith is INTENTIONAL
A transformed life comes only through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf, so we will be intentional & compassionate in sharing the Gospel message in word and deed (Rom. 1:16 & 10:17, Is.61:1-3, Mark 6:34).

Core Value 2: Living faith is RELATIONAL
Abundant life comes only through a relationship with our Creator, therefore we will help one another grow in our relationship with God, with each other, and our community as we partner together for the gospel (Gen.1:27, John 13:34-35, Ecc.4:12, Acts 2:42-47).

Core Value 3: Living faith is AUTHENTIC
An authentic life is about truth. Because God is Truth, we will strive to be authentic before God and with one another (Acts 5:1-11, Matt.7:1-5, Gal.6:1-2, Eph.4:15).

Core Value 4: Living faith is SERVICE-ORIENTED
A meaningful life comes through serving the King of the world. Because God has gifted His children to serve, we will grow in our gifts to serve one another, our communities, and the world (Eph.4:11-16, Acts 2:44-45).

Core Value 5: Living faith is EMPOWERED
A spiritual life comes only through the empowering of the Holy Spirit. And because God has called each Christian to service, we will empower and entrust people to serve, lead, and live out their calling (2 Tim.2:2, Eph. 2:8-10, 2 Cor.5:14-21)

At LFCC, we want you to experience a transformed, abundant, authentic, meaningful, and empowered life. Let your faith spring to life at Living Faith Community Church – a place where we can grow together in Christ-likeness and our calling to transform Pittsburgh with Christ’s Gospel.
