New to New Life

Welcome to New Life Church!

New Life Church is a safe place for all of us to explore what following Jesus looks like. It’s a place to be yourself, grow spiritually, build friendships, and help heal our world both locally and globally… and no perfect people are allowed!

Everyone is welcome at New Life, regardless of your story, your questions, your doubts, or your struggles. We don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we believe in a God who does. You fit at New Life. You belong here.

What to expect at New Life:
•No dress code! New Lifers look like and dress like you!
•Friendly people will answer any and all questions you have.
•If you have kids, they’re going to be safe, they’ll have fun and they will hear about Jesus.
•There’s going to be a band (you can either sing along or just listen to the music).
•There will be a moment when we pause to pray.
•A speaker will share a 30-40 minute message using the Bible that will surprise you with its relevance to your life situation.
•…and the whole thing will be about 90 minutes (Sundays) or 60 minutes (Wednesdays)!

More than just Sundays:
Encouraging people to go on the mission with Jesus means more than just weekend gatherings.
It includes:
•Joining a group
•Serving in a ministry.
Giving up things we love for things we love even more.
•And much more.

At New Life we are Real, Relevant and Relational.

Who we are:

We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers.
We’ll never insult God with small thinking and safe living.

We are all about the “capital C” Church!
The local church is the hope of the world
and we know we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart.

We give up things we love for things we love even more.
It’s an honor to sacrifice for Christ and His church.

We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ.
To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.

We will lead the way with irrational generosity.
We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.

We will laugh hard, loud and often.
Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!

We always bring our best.
Love is in the details.

We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers.
The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.

We will honor Christ and His church with integrity.
If we live with integrity, nothing else matters.
If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.

WHAT WE BELIEVE:
The church is not a building or an organization but people who are followers of Jesus. The word church literally means “called out ones” (ekklesia). Jesus called out 12 non-religious leaders to go on the mission with him to bring God’s Kingdom back to this Earth through human hearts.
