Christian Life Community was planted in July of 1992. We began as a small group meeting in the home of Pastor Jim and Maureen Lucas who had moved from North Vancouver to birth the new community under the auspices of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
On January 17th of 1993 our new community “went public” and began meeting in the Chapel of Summit Pacific College.
We moved to Abbotsford Christian Secondary School on Old Clayburn Road after outgrowing the chapel in 1995.
CLCC purchased and subdivided land in 2002 in order to subsidize the construction of a new facility, Creekside Centre, which now serves as a Base Camp for our Abbotsford campus at 35131 Straiton Road.
In 2012 we began a partnership with a congregation in Aldergrove which developed into the two churches joining, with the Aldergrove congregation becoming a satellite campus of CLCC. We hired campus pastors Mike and Julie Furtado to give pastoral care and leadership to CLCC Aldergrove, and they are leading the way in reaching out to that community.

Matthew 22:36-40 – “Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart … soul … and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
