Real LIFE CHURCH - The Entrepreneurial Church

Real Life is an entrepreneurial church that has a heart for de-churched people and for bridging the sacred and secular divide.

We model loving our city well as Christ loves us by flourishing our economy. We do that by fostering faithful next generation creativity, integrating faithful work in the economy and facilitating faithful business training.

The Entrepreneurial Church is not a “how” church, but a “why” church. It’s not about the methodology, but about the Christology,

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 

The entrepreneurial church has an entrepreneurial mindset in everything it does and becomes an agent of transformation that Co-creates with God the future of the city. 

About Us

Real Life Assemblies of God Church was launched on January 17, 2016. We desire to become a bridge to culture that connects people to God, and offer to Richmond’s small businesses a thriving environment for spiritual growth in order to balance faith, family and work. We’re just regular people in the process of discovering God’s purposes for our lives and learning to live a life like Jesus talked about.

We are a Christian church affiliated through fellowship and accountability with the Assemblies of God. We believe in biblical Christianity that is anchored in "The Holy Scripture, The Holy Spirit and The Holy Community of Faith" i.e. the Scripture, the Spirit and the Space.

Here is our Statement of Fundamental Truths

Doing Real Life With Real People

We hope your experience at Real Life Church will help you… challenge you… inspire you… encourage you… strengthen you and move you to action. God has entrusted the local church with carrying the life-changing message and ministry of Jesus Christ. There’s nothing else like it when it’s working as God intended. 


We are so excited to be celebrating our church officially recognized as General Council independent Church, affiliated with the Assemblies of God USA. We have seen God do amazing things, 53 salvations and counting, and we are looking forward to the days to come!

Real Life Church is a Church in the marketplace where everyone of us live daily. We are doing Real Life with Real People, connecting them to The Real GOD
