History

Making All Things New

Welcome to our 166-year-old church plant! Life Stream was originally founded as Allendale Wesleyan Church in 1851 by 9 founding members first meeting in a West Michigan farm house. Since then, our home has been several church buildings, schools and community centers as our church grew into its current identity.

After considering the options God provided our growing community over the last few years, our central campus is once again in a “school.” Having recently transformed the old Allendale High School into a state-of-the art worship and community center, Life Stream looks forward to how God will have us use the resources and tools He has provided. We also have another Life Stream campus in Mason Michigan we call this Life Stream Mid-Michigan. In addition to these two campuses, we have an English speaking service at Alas de Aguila in Allendale.

So how does a century and a half old church remain relevant to today’s culture, vibrant and growing? How does a church embrace being a multi-generational community of believers who understand that BEING the church is so much more important than just playing church?

Life Stream has decided to not act our age. We feel called by God to be a church plant. We embrace our community and culture with open arms and energy some feel only possible with brand new churches. Our teaching is compelling, worship inspiring and our people are open, welcoming and friendly.

We can’t wait to share with you what God has been up to in the life of Life Stream Church and more importantly, His message of Grace, Forgiveness, Love and Hope.
