Our Church

Our Church

Good Life Church officially launched weekly services on January 13th, 2013 at Tara Elementary School in Bradenton, FL and continues to develop into a vibrant and growing community of believers committed to the mission of making disciples that love enough to share the Good News of Jesus and our lives as well. The name "Good Life" derives from our founding verse, 1 Thessalonians 2:8 and reaffrims our commitment to share Good News and Life.

Good Life Church is affiliated with and partners with NAMB  to assess, train, coach and support church planters throughout the United States and Canada.

We believe that the core of the Good News of Jesus is that God Loves you. It is this love, proven throughout history, exemplified on the cross and alive through the resurrection of Jesus that has the potential to change lives, families, communities and the world. Love Changes Everything! That is the message that is the basis of our ministry and the hope of our lives.

We gather weekly at Tara Elementary every Sunday at 9:30am. Feel free to come early and spend time getting to know one another in our connection area where we provide fresh coffee and light breakfast snacks. We have children's ministry available weekly for Newborns-5th grade during the service but your children are always welcomed in the worship service if you prefer they stay with you. 

Tara Elementary is also our strategic partner throughout the week. Good Life is comitted to invest in the lives of the students and families of Tara by meeting practical needs as well as partnering with staff and administration to improve the mission of the school. We serve weekly through a mentoring/tutoring program for the students called Tara Tutoring. 

We look forward to meeting you at a weekly worship service or serving with you in our Tara community throughout the week.
