Who We Are
We are a Christ-centered church whose focus is to glorify God the Father and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. This includes our time of evangelism, the teaching of God’s Word, fellowship, Communion, and prayer.
Pastor Donat Boucher
I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. – Galatians 2:20
Donat’s pastoral journey began In September 2003, when God led him to pastor South Baptist Church in New Bedford, MA, of which he was ordained shortly afterward. After seeing God move in youth and adults alike through the years, Donat continued to serve at South Baptist Church for 3 ½ years.
Believing it was the Will of God to begin a ministry work in Fall River, Donat humbly resigned from South Baptist Church. He began a home church in March 2007; this is where Word of Life Community Church was founded.
After having served in Donat’s home for approximately one year, God blessed the church with the finances necessary to rent a small building at 75 Ferry Street, Fall River. Word of Life Community Church resided at Ferry Street until October 2011. By this time, the church had outgrown the building size due to the increased number of people that God led there to become part of this church’s family. Word of Life Community Church, therefore, temporarily rented space at 70 Water Street, Fall River until November 2012. It is at this time that God blessed the church with finances necessary to purchase our building located at 1647 Robeson Street, Fall River. This building (previously a synagogue) is currently where God is using Pastor Donat and many other faithful people to humbly serve God each week and to grow in His grace and knowledge.
