Our Goal:

To lead People to Jesus Christ And hELP tHEM gROW IN THE kNOWLEDGE OF OUR SAVIOR

We are a community of people, daily growing through a sanctification process. Together we strive for a deeper relationship with Jesus. Our goal is to lead the troubled and broken-hearted to Christ. We try to do this with every interaction we have - whether on a Sunday morning service, or at any of our ministries and outreaches. Everybody is welcome here, whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We believe Christ is the only answer and that you can find a new beginning in Him.  This is why it is our greatest desire that our church be a place of beginning again!

We Focus on Jesus and His Finished Work on the Cross

No matter what your story is, God has a plan for you. Whether you've come from a diverse and rough background, or a relatively easy one - God is the ultimate author of your story. New Life Worship values focusing on Christ and Him Crucified above everything else in attempting to accomplish our goal as a church.  There are several opportunities to connect. Through our Sunday School, Sunday and Wednesday Services along with our Understanding the Cross class. The best way to get plugged in at New Life is by visiting one of these gatherings.

What We Believe


THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED


The Scriptures are God’s infallible Word, authoritative rule of faith and conduct for all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, were inspired by God. They are revelations of God and declare His design and plan for mankind. The Word of God is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

 

Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; Romans 15:42 Timothy 3:15-17

THE ONE TRUE GOD


The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of Heaven and Earth and the Redeemer of mankind. God has existed, for all eternity, as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - better known as the Trinity. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.

 

Exodus 3:14; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Romans 8:9-11; Galatians 4:4-6; James 2:19

THE DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST


The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His work on the Cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and His exaltation to the right hand of God.


Matthew 1:23; 28:6; Luke 1:31, 35; I Corinthians 15:3-4; II Corinthians 5:21Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3

THE FALL OF MAN


Man was originally created good and upright; for God said "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness."  Man was created to have fellowship with God, but became separated in that relationship through voluntary sinful disobedience. As a result of that separation, man incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death. Through his own efforts, man cannot attain a right relationship with God, it's only through Salvation that the relationship can be restored.

 

Genesis 3:1-24; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:29-31; Romans 1:21-32Ephesians 2;1-6

THE SALVATION OF MAN


Man's only hope of redemption is through the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross. Salvation occurs when people repent towards God, place their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. By the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit, man is justified/saved by grace through faith. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. The inward evidence of Salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. The outer evidence is a life of righteousness and true holiness that is visible to all men.

 

Isaiah 1:18Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:68-69; John 1:12-13; Acts 2:21; Romans 1:16-182 Corinthians 5:17

THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH


BAPTISM - The ordinance of Baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ, as Savior and Lord, are to be baptized. It declares to the world that they have died with Christ, been buried in Christ and have been raised in Christ to walk in newness of life with Him. 


Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:41; Romans 6:4

COMMUNION


COMMUNION - The Lord's Supper, consisting of the two elements - bread (represents the body of Jesus) and the fruit of the vine (represents the blood of Jesus) - is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of the Lord Jesus Christ. Until the Lord returns, Believers should partake in communion: 1). as a memorial of His suffering and death; 2) as a prophecy of His Second Coming


Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:15-20; I Corinthians 11:23-31

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT


All Believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. Wih it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. 


Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-9; 8:12-17; 10:44; 11:15-16

THE INITIAL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT


The Baptism of Believers in the Holy Spirit is witnesses by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance. 


Acts 2:1-4; 10:46; 19:6


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


SANCTIFICATION


Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord." By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command, "Be ye holy, for I am holy." 


Romans 6:13; 8:13;12:1-2; I Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12

THE CHURCH AND IT'S MISSION


The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ. 


Matthew 18:15-20; Acts 14:23; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18; I Peter 5:1-4

THE MINISTRY


The Mininstry of the Body of Christ is to evangelize the world, worship God, build a body of Believers to be a reflection of Jesus and to demonstrate God's love and compassion by meeting the needs of people.


Psalms 112:9; John 4:23-24; Galatians 2:10Ephesians 4:11-16; James 1:27

DIVINE HEALING


Divine healing is an important part of the Gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is a privilege for all Believers.


Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


THE BLESSED HOPE


The resurrecction of those Saints that have gone on before us, together with those Believers who are alive and are waiting for the coming of the Lord, is the blessed hope of the Church.


Romans 8:23; I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:13


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST


The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to war in the Battle of Armeggedon and then to reign on earth for one thousand years. The Millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.


Psalms 72:3-8; Ezekiel 37:21-22; Micah 4:3-4; Zephaniah 3:19-20; Zechariah 14:5; Revelation 19:11-14; 20:1-6

THE FINAL JUDGMENT


There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Those whose names are not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be thrown into everlasting punishment in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.


Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8

THE NEW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH


"We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness."
