Our Mission & Vision

New Life Fellowship was formed as a nondenominational community church in 2012. We are here to nurture, strengthen and serve the people of our community in their spiritual journey to become followers of Christ.
 

What Can I Expect?

  • Experience relevant and practical Biblical teaching in a way that is clear and easy to understand.  A place to be challenged, yet participate at a pace that feels comfortable to you.
  • A setting where knowledge of the Bible or religion is not necessary, but as you hang around with us we hope you will learn and grow in your understanding of the Bible and who Jesus is.
  • A safe environment where it’s ok to ask the hard questions about God and about life.
  • A place where dressing-up for church is optional…come as you are!
  • Worship that is lively and relaxed.
  • Strong, Bible-based teaching for the children and teens.
  • Refreshments!  Plenty of food and socializing.
  • A staffed nursery for infants and toddlers during the Sunday morning worship service.
 
What we believe:
  • We believe God sent Jesus into the world as a man to rescue it; that He was killed by His enemies; and that He was raised from the dead.
  • We believe that through our faith in Him, Jesus delivers us from a life of sin by His death and grants us eternal life by His resurrection.
  • We believe in God who brought a new way of living through Jesus Christ, His Son.
  • We believe that Jesus is the center of our faith, and that every Christian should strive to show healing, hope, and love to others in both word and deed that Jesus taught and displayed in His life.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit gives us power to live the life that God intended, transforms us, and equips us to serve.
  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and that it is a trustworthy standard for a Christian life.
  • We believe that God created the heavens, the earth, and the human beings in it, and that humans were made for a relationship to God, to live in peace with each other, and to take care of His creation.
  • We believe that humans, because of the sin of Adam and Eve, are naturally born to a life of sin but that God offers us a new way of living through Jesus.
  • We believe that the church exists to provide a place of safety and belonging, a place where a community of believers can support, nurture, strengthen, serve, and encourage one another on their spiritual journey.
  • We believe that the past, present, and future are secure in God’s hands and that Jesus Christ will Return at a time appointed by God the Father.
