Life.Church (pronounced “Life Church”, formerly known as LifeChurch.tv, Life Covenant Church, and Life Church) is an American evangelical multi-site church based in Edmond, Oklahoma. Craig Groeschel is the founder and senior pastor of Life.Church. Weekly church attendance was 85,000 people in 2018. The church is known for its YouVersion ministry, which publishes the Bible App.

In January 1996, Life.Church was founded as Life Covenant Church in Oklahoma City with 40 congregants meeting together in a two-car garage. The church membership grew rapidly, and Life.Church built its first facility (now known as the “Oklahoma City Campus”) in 1999.

In 2001, MetroChurch, a 25-year-old, nondenominational church in nearby Edmond, Oklahoma merged with Life.Church, effectively making it a multi-site church. With this merger, they changed their name, combining Life Covenant Church with MetroChurch to arrive at the name “LifeChurch”. Following the multi-site services, the church launched campuses in Tulsa and Stillwater, Oklahoma in 2003, with these new campuses incorporating satellite video teaching into their services.

Life.Church opened an additional campus in Oklahoma City, the South Oklahoma City Campus, in Spring 2005. In February 2006, Life.Church introduced a campus in Fort Worth, Texas, its first location outside Oklahoma. In April 2006, the church established its “Internet Campus”which broadcasts weekly, interactive worship services live over the internet.

On Easter Sunday, 2007, Life.Church began broadcasting from their new campus in the online game Second Life. Also in 2007, Life.Church opened campuses in northwest Oklahoma City, another in Wellington, Florida in 2012 and in Albany, New York in 2016.
