Our Pastor


Pastors Bryan and Lacey Smith are Senior Pastors of Christian Life Church. Bryan has been the Senior Pastor of Christian Life Church for 8 years. Bryan came to Christian Life Church as a drummer and was eventually promoted as Office Manager, in which he served both rolls faithfully until he was promoted to Campus Pastor, and then Senior Pastor. Bryan met his wife Lacey a few years after becoming Senior Pastor and today they are happily married. Pastors Bryan and Lacey have a heart for the lost and broken, and they encourage people to come as they are. 

When Bryan became Pastor of CLC, God gave him a vision to have a Restoration Center for recovering drug addicts in the St. Francios County area. From that, LifeSavers Ministry was born and our transition home, the House of Esther was created.     

About Us

Jesus tells us in John 13:34 that we are to love one another just as He has loved us, therefore CLC is a "Judge Free Zone" where you can come as you are and be accepted. We will love you and encourage you in your relationship with God as you grow in your walk with Him. 

Our desire is to create an experience where you walk away encouraged in God's love for you. 

As you visit you will find friendly door greeters to welcome you, and knowledgeable staff to show you around and answer all your questions. Currently we have coffee and donuts from 9 AM - 9:45 AM where you can meet and socialize with some of our members and visitors.


Our Sunday church experience starts at 10 AM with Praise and Worship, with an inspiring message from Pastor Bryan to follow.

Wednesday night groups start at 7 PM where Pastor Bryan teaches the Word of God in practical application.


Our Beliefs

The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

Though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).

Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and Communion as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

The Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.

Divine Healing of the Sick is provided for in Christ's death on the cross for our sins.

When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.
