Who We Are

Our Long-Term Vision

A Neighborhood Church with a City-Wide Vision

In the next 10 years, Real Life Community will saturate our neighborhood (1 Mile Radius) with the embodiment of the gospel by becoming a source of Kingdom blessing, shelter and community for it. Over this time, we will also give ourselves away to help facilitate 5 new churches in different strategic areas of Murfreesboro.

Our dream is that God would use us to help establish a vibrant network of local expressions of the body of Christ for communities and neighborhoods in the city, with each local body responsible for saturating their area with the embodiment of the gospel. In this way, we hope to make an eternal difference in the city of Murfreesboro.

Finally, we hope to provide a spark, inspiration and encouragement for churches on our District and in our denomination to neighborhood-focused, Kingdom-minded, self-giving approach to being the church and reaching the lost.


with God and others.

We’re a church that’s built on relationships. Everything starts there. Our first priority is that each of us would become CONNECTED with God in a saving relationship. This is where human life begins and flourishes. But we don’t just do this as individuals. When we begin a relationship with God, we are grafted into the family of God as well. A close relationship with God and others who are journeying with this God is the essential starting point for our mission.


in Christlikeness.

We believe that God embraces you and loves you just as you are, but that God also has great dreams for your life and who you will become. The desire of God’s heart is that we’d all be conformed into the likeness of Jesus, who taught and modeled love of the Father and neighbor perfectly.


God’s life with the world.

God has poured so much into each of our lives: love, salvation, relationships, resources, gifts, talents and on. These blessings were not meant to be hoarded, but to be shared. So, we’re going to leverage all that we’ve been given in order to be a blessing to our community and to the world. We’d love for you to join in and be a part of the SHARING!
