Everlasting Life Christian Church was birthed on September 21, 2009 as a small conference call Bible Study. It quickly grew from local participants to state-wide, and eventually country wide callers. A decision was made in January 2011 to move forward in ministry and begin official incorporation and tax-exempt status as a Church under Federal and NC State Law.
Everlasting Life Christian Church (ELCC) derives its name from John 4:14 and Romans 6:22. Both verses speak of an eternal life awaiting all those who walk in righteousness and live according to the Word of God until Jesus Christ returns.
“But the water I give them takes away thirst altogether. It becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life.” – John 4:14
“But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.” – Romans 6:22
The parent Church of ELCC is Everlasting Life Full Gospel Ministries in Fayetteville, NC where the presiding Pastor is Aileen Lyons and Bishop Dallas Lyons, Jr. Their Overseer is Pastor Dr. Dorothy Batts of Outreach for Jesus in Hope Mills, NC.
