Jesus said "and you will know them by their fruit". Look at the results of the preaching of those in charge at these churches. As a former member of Lakeview, who's family was excommunicated when my father brought up certain valid concerns, I am a direct victim of the affect of the abuse facilitated in this system. Look at the fruit reaped in the lives of these emotional manipulators and tell me if it mirrors the teachings of Christ in any way.
My wife has experienced an mental health issue, she went nuts. This 'church'' threw her out and told her that she could re apply in one year.A lot of love there.Scumbags
Does God tell parents to cut ties with their children? Does God tell sons and daughters to cut ties with their parents? The leaders of Northridge Christian Life Church instruct their followers to "disfellowship" (i.e. shun) parents, sons, daughters, siblings. My God tells me to honor my parents and that children are a gift from God. Family is ordained by God. I choose to listen to those words of God, and honor my parents and love and cherish my children. Will you do the same?
God moves and speaks in each service at Northridge Christian Life Church.
This church is under the "umbrella" of an organization called the Association of New Testament Ministries. Included in this association is Lakeview Christian Life Church in Bridgeville, PA, among others. Direction and authority over Northridge Christian Life Church flows from the leaders of Lakeview, down to the leaders of Northridge Christian Life Church and the other churches in the association. The assocaition has shrunk over the years as individuals, families, and pastors have left and/or been ejected. Entire churches, in fact, have been shuttered. The result is an ever shrinking locus of control and a tightening of the reins of control over those who remain. Please do a quick search of Lakeview Christian Life Church if you are considering getting involved in this church. The wake of destruction left by this association is evident. If you are already involved, and having doubts about remaining, be bold, pick up your pallet, and walk! The paralytic that Jesus healed did not know he was healed and able to walk until he took the first step! There is life and life abundant on the outside, and in a healthy church where Jesus is on the throne, not man. Faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love!
Stay away from this church they will have you shun family members such as your mother father brother sister and even your son or daughter if you decide to leave this church.I have seen my mother and father go through a lot of pain loosing their daughter.I pray she will come back to us!
