A BIT ABOUT US
One Sunday at CLC could change your life.
Christian Life Center is an Apostolic Church, affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International. We are committed to loving, serving, and reaching Braselton and the surrounding area.
Christian Life Center was started in 2009 by Senior Pastor Jeff Long and Bishop Lewis Long. They felt the burden and answered the call to begin this ministry in our great city. We are so honored to have them serve as Senior Pastor and Bishop and are thankful for the years of prayer and wisdom that they invested in CLC. We would not be here today if it were not for their willingness to go where God had sent them.
Christian Life Center was started in a store front space, but soon purchased our own property on Highway 53. The church building we are in now, was completely renovated and updated. It went from being an old warehouse to a place of worship.
Pastor Sossoman began serving on the ministry team in 2019 and has continued to lead Christian Life Center with the same vision that God gave Senior Pastor Long years ago. CLC is a place where the broken can be put back together, the sick can be healed, the empty can be filled and new life can be found! We have witnessed many received the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, and have seen many be baptized in Jesus' name!
We have worked hard at CLC to develop many programs that serve our church family, as well as programs that benefit our local community. However, more important than any program, we believe that God's house should be a house of prayer. We know that there is power in prayer and trust that God is using CLC to make a difference in the city of Braselton!
While we have a great past, we know that it is not comparable to what God is wanting to do at Christian Life Center! We will continually seek after God, that His perfect work will be completed through us! Our desire is to see revival sweep through our city, county and state. We want CLC to always be a place where marriages can be restored, families can be strengthened, miracles can happen and God would pour out His spirit in a mighty way.
When you walk through the doors of CLC, we pray that you would KNOW God is here. We want you to know that we will pray with you and pray for you.
We are looking toward the future with great faith and expectation, knowing that God not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly!
About the United Pentecostal Church International
The United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) is a Oneness Pentecostal organization with churches, ministers, and members across the globe. With roots anchored firmly in the Bible and a vision for ministering to communities around the world, the UPCI embraces its mission to carry the whole gospel to the whole world by the whole church.
The UPCI has been among the fastest-growing church organizations since it was formed in 1945 by the merger of the Pentecostal Church Incorporated and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ. From 521 churches in 1945, the UPCI has grown to over 40,000 churches (including preaching points), 35,000 credentialed ministers, and a constituency of about 4 million in 225 nations and territories. The international fellowship consists of national organizations that are united as the Global Council of the UPCI, which is chaired by the general superintendent of the UPCI.
The UPCI emerged out of the Pentecostal movement that began with a Bible school in Topeka, Kansas, in 1901 and with the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles, California, in 1906. It traces its organizational roots to 1916, when a large group of Pentecostal ministers began to unite around the teaching of the oneness of God and water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ.
