Loving God, Loving People, Making Disciples

Our Story
 
Our mission at New Life Christian Church is: Loving God, Loving People, and Making Disciples. We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our desire is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through opening our doors to listen and share the truth of God's love, we feel that we are living the love of Jesus and walking in his footsteps.
Our Response to COVID-19

The Leadership Team at New Life has never led our church through a pandemic. If we decide to remain open, people will say we should have closed. If we close, people are going to say we should have remained open. We are having to make some difficult decisions to protect our church body and must consider everything from spiritual growth, physical health, to legal liabilities and other things that you are not even aware of. We have an amazing church. Please remember this: No one wants things to go well at church as much as the Leadership Team, and we need your prayers right now. We also need our church body to pull together, focus on the Lord, and provide the prayer and financial support we will need to move forward in the future. We plan to continue, in faith, trusting God as we make decisions based on His direction  for His glory and the good of the church. We love you and thank God for you!

The Lord has a Way!

The Lord has a way forward for your church. Whenever a church faces a new crisis, the Lord always has a way through the crisis with often surprising outcomes. For example, in the book of Acts, every crisis that threatened His church actually resulted in more people coming to know Jesus. Some historians believe that part of the remarkable growth of the early church came through two deadly epidemics that struck the Roman Empire in the second and third centuries. In his book "The Triumph of Christianity -- How the Jesus Movement Became the World's Largest Religion" (HarperOne 2011), sociologist Rodney Stark describes a suspected smallpox epidemic in 165 A.D. that killed 25-30 percent of the population. People fled the cities in fear, refusing to care for ailing family members. Christians provided much-needed care for the sick when no one else would. Stark believes that was one reason the church grew from an estimated 45,000 adherents during the first epidemic to over 1.1 million believers by the time the second epidemic struck in 251 A.D. The coronavirus pandemic is a dangerous and disruptive force in the world today. The Lord is not in a panic and He has not been taken by surprise. He has a way for you and your church not only to survive this crisis but to use you to minister encouragement and truth in a deeply troubled period of our history.
