Our Pastor

Steven and Tiffany met in 2001, were married in 2005, and have chased after God’s calling in ministry together ever since. They are fully devoted to the local church, and see it as God’s best expression of how He’s working in our world.

Steven and Tiffany have spent the last 10 years leading and serving in local church ministry. Prior to moving to South Florida to plant Legacy Church, Steven served as a Church Planting Catalyst and Lead Pastor in Washington, D.C. Over this time, they have pursued consistent fruitfulness, bold faith, a genuine love for people, and a clear devotion to God. Their home and their lives have been open spaces for other people to find Jesus, grow in faith, understand belonging, and step into their active role as a part of Jesus’ church.

You don’t have to know the Lees for very long to understand the passion they have for loving people, and connecting people to Jesus. They prioritize and value a growing and real relationship with God, a commitment to local church, and the pursuit of growth in community. Over the past 11 months, it’s become so clear to Steven and Tiffany that God has directed them to plant a church in Coconut Creek.

They are the proud parents of five wonderful children Shania, Silas, Sawyer, Stephen, and Shaw and currently reside in Coconut Creek, FL.

WHO WE ARE

We are a community of people who love one another deeply and are committed to serving our world sacrificially. We believe God created the church to make a difference in the lives of people who come to church so they can make a difference in the lives of people when they leave the church. Or, as we like to say around here, Legacy Church exists to make a better you for a better world.

Legacy Church seeks to be used by God to provide answers to the deepest longings of our hearts—purpose, love and a sense of belonging. On Sunday mornings, we gather for a shared worship experience as a community where the teaching of God’s Word offers practical solutions to the day-to-day challenges we face. During the week, small groups connect throughout the city to further express that care and love in an intimate setting. Beyond these groups and our Sunday morning worship experience, there are countless ways to engage with us that you’ll find right here on our site.

So whether you’re just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to deepen your faith, even more, you can find a home here at Legacy Church.

About Legacy Church

Legacy Church exists to help people move from where they are to where God wants them to be. Steven and Tiffany dreamed of planting a church where people all people could experience the love of Jesus. On January 27, 2019 that dream will become a reality as Legacy holds its very first weekend experience at Monarch High School.

In the short history of Legacy what God has done has been nothing short of a miracle. You’ll discover that our passion is to provide an atmosphere where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.

If you haven’t visited, we invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion!

Our goal is to infuse destiny and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship experiences that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.

Our Beliefs

HOLY BIBLE

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.  It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. (Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Proverbs 30:5; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; Romans 16:25-28; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Peter 3:16). 
Trinity


TRINITY

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; Romans 8:9-11; Hebrews 3:7-11; James 2:19; I John 5:7;)
The Father


THE FATHER

God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises (Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4).


THE SON

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity.  He is completely human but, at the same time, completely God.  He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection.  He defeated death in His resurrection so we can have life (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1,14, 20:28; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; I Timothy 3:16; Philippians 2:5-6; Colossians 1:15; 2:9 I Timothy 2:5).


THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God.  The Holy Spirit’s presence, in the lives of Christians, assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.  The Christian seeks to live under His control daily (Genesis 1:2; Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 1:8, 2:1-4; 17, 38-39; 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47; 11:15-17, 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 5:18; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17).


ETERNITY

Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence (Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20; Mark 9:43-48; John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 9:27; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:12-15).


MAN

Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. We are all born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. We're incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts (Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11).


SALVATION

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is God’s gift to you if you’ll accept it.  It is not a result of our good works, self-improvement, or of any human efforts. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin's penalty (Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66; 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 14:6; John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 5:1; 10:9-10; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 9:22; Revelation 3:20).


VIRGIN BIRTH

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God (Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35).


REDEMPTION

Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).


REGENERATION

For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5).


REPENTANCE

Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9).


SANCTIFICATION

Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).


JESUS' BLOOD

The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).


THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10).


THE CHURCH

The church is the Body of Christ, a local community of baptized believers, unified through faith in Christ Jesus.  It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands.  The church also seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ. (Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; John 17:11, 20-23; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Hebrews 12:23).


WATER BAPTISM

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new believer is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48).


COMMUNION

Communion is a unique time, in the presence of God, when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25).


BIBLICAL MARRIAGE

Biblical Marriage is clearly defined as one man (born a man) united with one woman (born a woman) for life. This covenant is with God and should not be taken lightly or altered to fit personal preferences. (Genesis 2:22-24, Ephesians 5:22-33, Matthew 19:4-6, Mark 10:6-9, Galatians 5:24-25).


HEALING OF THE SICK

Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. (Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; I Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29).


RESURRECTION

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).


SECOND COMING

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)
