Breath of Life Christian Church (BOL) is...
…a multiethnic, economically diverse church family established by men and women seeking to know God and to make Him known through the pursuit of unity in accordance with the prayer of Jesus Christ (John 17:20-23) and patterned after the New Testament church at Antioch
(Acts 11:19-26; 13:1ff.).
Breath of Life is not...
…a church family that is focused on racial reconciliation. Rather, we a church family that is focused on reconciling men and women to God through faith in Jesus Christ and on reconciling ourselves to the principles and practices of first-century churches: congregations of faith in which diverse men and women walked, worked and worshipped God together as one Christian family for the sake of the gospel.
