About Us

 Life Center Church of Deliverance was birthed in April of 1983 in the home of its present senior leaders Apostle Lorenzo and Pastor Brenda Irving.  The Lord spoke and said that this was not to be another mediocre church in the city that is not effective, but that it was to be a fiery effective church making a difference in the city, nation, and the world.  This ministry has been the catalyst for thousands to be blessed through our discipleship and deliverance ministry.  We have a strong committment to minister to the lost, broken, forgotten, rich, poor, and to anyone that needs to be touched by God.  We believe in the operation of the fivefold ministry gifts and embrace the Apostolic Reformation that is bringing the Church to its truest and fullest function. 


Mission Statement 
To advance the kingdom of God through wholistic ministry, reaching the masses and setting the captives free, through the gospel message of hope.


Vision Statement 

God has raised up this ministry for the purpose of bringing Salvation & Deliverance to those who would receive it, irrespective of Gender, Race, or Social Status.

We are committed to keeping the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations.  This is done through fervent evangelism and a comprehensive teaching ministry for every level of need.

We believe that an effective church is a praying church therefore, we are committed to leading a prayerful and consecrated lifestyle.

Thus, the elements of Salvation, Deliverance, Teaching, Evangelism, and Prayer, must be the focus of every program, and the objective of every goal.

We are also committed to Training, Developing, and Equipping the believers in their particular gifts, so that they may fulfill their purpose in the earth for the kingdom's sake.

Being dedicated to the family structure, it is our endeavor to provide ministry that will Promote, Guide, and Strengthen the Family in general, and every facet in particular.
