Who We Are
Lanesville Christian Church was born in the summer of 2003 as “New Life Christian Church”, and what began as a desire of 5 families to establish a nondenominational, community church in Lanesville quickly grew to 60 people the first few weeks. Within 2 years our attendance doubled and we broke ground on our current building at 8090 Tandy Rd in Lanesville. We have continued to grow in numbers as well as our impact on the Kingdom of God locally and globally, and by the grace of God we will continue to grow.
In 2015 our name officially changed from New Life to Lanesville Christian Church. The change was born out of a desire to differentiate ourselves from other organizations and local congregations that shared the name “New Life”.
Lanesville Christian Church is a Bible-believing and Bible-teaching church. We desire to see people get past the man-made traditions and complicated theologies that divide us and simply know Jesus, love Jesus, and live for Jesus.

Lanesville Christian Church exists to honor God by attracting and involving people in God’s purpose as made known through His Son, Jesus Christ, and His written Word, the Holy Bible. Our desire is to be diligent and faithful in prayer and in worship, to be transformed by the study of the Holy Scriptures so that we can be close to God and teach others how to live by faith in Jesus Christ, and minister God’s greatest gift to our young. It is our desire to be agents of change in this community and region, by loving people the way Christ loved us.
The Restoration Movement began nearly 150 years ago, not with the intent to be a new denomination among the various splintered denominations already in existence, but to be a body of believers that could unite. The intent was to restore the Christian unity by restoring the Christian message. The plea went out, “Let’s get back to the basics.” A common phrase that could often be heard was, “Where the Bible speaks, we speak. Where the Bible is silent, we are silent.”
“Where the Bible speaks, we speak. Where the Bible is silent, we are silent.”
The Restoration Movement began on the United States frontier during the Second Great Awakening (1790–1840) of the early 19th century. The pioneers of this movement were seeking to reform the church from within. Hoping for “the unification of all Christians in a single body patterned after the church of the New Testament.” It has been described as the “oldest ecumenical movement in America”
