VISION STATEMENT

 

Our goal is to help members of the Body of Christ to experience,

mature in, and communicate effectively the message of

identification with Christ in His death, burial, resurrection, and

ascension in their various spheres of influence.  The bottom line

is our fellowships involve the entire family in all levels of worship and activities sponsored by the Body of Christ.

It is our passion to integrate knowing the indwelling Jesus Christ, releasing His love & preaching and teaching His Word, being devoted to Biblical doctrines, and advancing the Life of Christ within the full Body of Christ. We desire to be known for releasing Christ within true indwelt believers, releasing His love, with a special emphasis on widows, orphans and the lowly. We are intent on reaching the hearts and minds of individuals who have been rejected by society - the lowly. We also want to grow individual families, with a special equipping emphasis on patriarchs and heads of home. Our women train other women and our children are released to minister as God decides to use them. Our singles are taught to embrace contentment & competence in Christ, while preparing for a possible marriage here on earth. Every single person is counted as an individual family unit and is never separated for "specialize" training or support.

Most Common Questions

Why the name change?

 

Our church started out as Heartland Family Fellowships.  Due to the burden the founder developed

for the Millennial Generation, the leadership decided to change the name to a more Millennial

friendly title - thus the name XL-Church | X-Changing Lives Worldwide.  In July of 2017, the founder

released a new book covering this topic and burden: The Father, Refuting A New Kind of

Christianity.  REVIEW THE BOOK: Here    REVIEW OTHER BOOKS BY THE FOUNDER: Here

What is Family Integration?

 

The bottom line is our fellowship involves the entire family in all levels of worship and activities sponsored by the Body of Christ. 

What is your goal?

Very few local churches would be able to sign on to a Family Integrated Confession of Faith, let alone keep the family together during the time of worship.  Our goal and vision is not to be viewed as a church that includes the entire family, we would rather be known for preaching the Truth and nothing but the Truth - to the complete family unite. 

What is your passion?

It is our passion to integrate knowing Jesus Christ, loving & preaching His Word, being devoted to Biblical doctrines, fellowship with the full Body of Christ and prayer. We desire to be known for loving people, with a special emphasis on widows, orphans and the lowly.  We are intent on reaching the hearts and minds of individuals who have been rejected by society - the lowly.  We also want to grow individual families, with a special equipping emphasis on patriarchs and heads of home.   Our women train other women and our children are released to minister as God decides to use them. Our singles are taught to embrace contentment & competence in Christ, while preparing for a possible marriage here on earth.  Every single person is counted as an individual family unit and is never separated for "specialize" training or support.

What about church programs?

We do not make use of traditional church type programs but we will offer training and equipping classes, which children 10 years of age and older are strongly encouraged to attend. 

Why do you hesitate in calling yourself a "local church?"

XL-Church is an outreach ministry of IOM America.  We believe the Church includes the entire Body of Christ - worldwide. This is why we podcast to an international audience on a weekly basis.  It is our belief that our local fellowship is simply a gathering of believers who support such ideologies. 

Why do you mean by the term "Exchanged Life?"

This is a common term used to describe the believer's exchange when they become a born-again Christian.  This term was originally used by Hudson Taylor to define the exchange that takes place upon salvation—we exchange our life for His.  Many teachers of the cross also use this term to explain an indwelt believer appropriating their co-death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. One of the most common Scriptures used in this exchange is Galatians 2:20, “not I, but Christ.”  All believers in Christ receive the exchanged life at the moment of their salvation. We believe this term depicts our mission.
