About LFA 2017-02-03T18:04:50+00:00


I am so excited to introduce you to our church! You’ll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God in a safe environment!

At Lancaster First Assembly, we continue to build on the shoulders of those who have gone before us through the years. Our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. What the world labels as diversity is exactly what we think heaven will be like. People of every color, nation, and language are welcome at our church.

What people usually notice first about us is the life-giving nature of our ministry. Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.

But it won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. In fact, we’re a hub for building life-long relationships. And if you’d like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, you’ll be glad to know there are opportunities to do just that.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s relevant teaching, authentic worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage one life at a time.

So, whether you’re just starting to ask questions about God or you’re a committed Christian who wants to grow your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at Lancaster First Assembly.

Like any church, Lancaster First Assembly is not perfect – we’re a work in progress. Yet by His grace we strive to know Him more, worship Him as we should, be conformed to His image, and reflect His likeness to those in our community. We invite you to worship with us this Sunday!

In the meantime, you’ll find everything you need right here to get connected to Lancaster First Assembly’s online resources. You can use this site to check out other ministries, listen to one of our weekend services, find information on our life groups, or read about what’s going on around the church. You can also download our app, LFA Connect, on your mobile device.

Enjoy, and please contact us if you have any questions.

Our purpose at Lancaster First Assembly is…

“To Love God and Make a Difference.”

We filter every idea, program and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it. Our statement of purpose is built on two teachings of Jesus.

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
MATTHEW 22:36-40 NIV

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
MARK 16:15-17, 20 NIV

Lancaster First Assembly exists…
  • To Communicate (Connect) with others through meaningful relationships.
  • To Care (Encourage) followers of Jesus in their God-given destiny.
  • To Celebrate (Worship) God with sincere expression.
  • To Share the Good News of Jesus with others by telling our stories.
