Who We Are

Life Source Church was established with the vision of being a culturally diverse ministry that truly embraces the way of life in Northern New Jersey by building meaningful relationships, supporting families and clearly communicating the life giving message of Jesus. Life Source Church remains committed to this vision as the church has moved to West Caldwell to accommodate the growing congregation. The Life Source Church family is determined to remain connected to Jesus, the source of life (John 7:38) as they continue to grow!

Our Services

What are services like?
Life Source is a contemporary church made up of great diversity in age, race and economic status so you're sure to fit right in. Come in jeans or dress business casual because we don't focus on outward appearance, but rather the acceptance of Christ. At Life Source there are people who stopped going to church years ago who have found a home here, others who just started recently coming to church and still others who have been in church their entire lives. So come as you are to a place where you'll be 'embraced by love and empowered to live!'

What is the community like?
Working Middle Class to Professional. A beautiful suburban location with plenty of parking.

What if I'm not a Christian?
C'mon in, we'd love to have you!
