Values

Jesus:

We love introducing people to Jesus. Not just as a historical figure or a teacher with some good ideas, but as one who exponentially changes lives.

Community:

While we love gathering together each weekend, we believe the greatest life transformation happens in circles not rows. So, we gather in smaller groups throughout the month to laugh, learn, grow, share, listen, and pray with one another.
Jesus said when we love one another, people will identify us as His followers. We aren’t perfect, but we desire and live into His calling to love one another. But we don’t stop there, we feel compelled to love those who believe, live and act different than we do as well.

The Journey:

So, your story isn’t perfect? Neither is ours. However, we’ve discovered Jesus is capable of starting amazing new chapters with less than perfect beginnings. Whether you’re investigating God for the first time or have been following Jesus for years, we want New Life to be a place where you can ask questions, grow in your faith, and discover the full life Jesus desires for you.

GENEROSITY

We believe that we are better together. Generosity is an attitude that puts others and God’s kingdom before self. Generosity with our financial resources demonstrates our trust in God, our gratitude toward His provision, and it demonstrates our desire to be a part of advancing His kingdom.

We strive to align our stewardship with our values. So, check out financial report from last year.

Annual Report (latest)


GOD

We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

JESUS

We believe in Jesus Christ who is fully God and fully man at the same time. Humbly, He became like us to redeem and restore us to a right relationship with God. He is the only way to God the Father.

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe the Holy Spirit empowers and equips all believers to live holy lives. The Spirit of the living God moves within us so that we may be the visible presence of an invisible God in our world.

THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible is the living Word of God. We stand on the promises of His Word and live out its implications in this world.

SIN

We believe sin separates us from God. In our own strength we can do nothing to fix the problem of sin. However, through the love and grace of God by the death and resurrection of His Son the sins of all Christ followers are washed away

THE CHURCH

We believe that the church is the Body of Christ, carrying out His mission and advancing His kingdom in the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.

BAPTISM

We believe that baptism is an outward expression of the inward decision to make Jesus Lord of your life. Baptism is not only an act of obedience but it is also a celebration of a transformed life.

PRAYER

We believe that prayer is foundational for every Christ follower. Prayer is essential to connecting us to the heart of God. As we grow deeper in our connection with God through prayer He moves in our lives and in our world.

SERVING

We believe that every person within the Body of Christ has a purpose and a function. The Church works at its optimal level when all its people are committed to advancing God’s kingdom. Therefore, we place a high value on serving within our church, in our local community, and around the world.

COMMUNION

We believe in the practice of the Lord’s Supper. We regularly dedicate a time in our services to remember the sacrifice of Christ’s broken body and shed blood for the forgiveness of sin. All Christ followers are welcome to participate.
