our mission & vision

New Life exists to...

Connect people to the life and love of Jesus... 

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” -Matthew 28:18-20

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” -John 10:10

By loving others the way Jesus loves us all.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
-John 13:34-35

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:30-32

We love because he first loved us. -1 John 4:19

our strategies

Creating large group environments that help people encounter Jesus and catalyze our ongoing spiritual growth through practical teaching and powerful worship.

Creating an intentional small group culture in our church so we can personally connect with, equip and encourage each other to chase after all that Jesus has for us as we follow Him together.

Creating spaces and relationships that invest in the coming generation in order to empower them in age-appropriate ways to learn and grow their own personal faith in Jesus.

Creating service opportunities through our Partner Causes that enable us to impact our community and world by serving others with the touch of Jesus.

our heartbeat

Every church has its own heartbeat, some deeply held set of values or perspectives, that undergirds all it does…and New Life is no exception. Because we are a deeply Jesus-centered church, our heartbeat statements are based on three values Jesus clearly held as He worked with people.

Everybody’s lovedThis is always where we start. Each of us is made in the image of God. God considers each of us His child. And so at New Life we love everybody, regardless of what they’ve done, what values they hold, what gender, what sexual orientation, what age, what ethnicity, etc. Everybody’s loved…no qualifications needed, no caveats, no exceptions. Our love for every human being is unconditional.

Nobody’s Perfect — We live in a very broken world, and each of us carries with us our own share of this brokenness. This is an inescapable reality, so we make no attempt to hide our own brokenness or attach any shame to it or anyone else’s brokenness. It’s a normal part of being human. But, it also gives us great opportunities to extend grace to each other. To Jesus, grace was the natural outgrowth of love, so He extended grace to all the imperfect people in His world, and we find great joy in doing the same.

Anything’s Possible — Put God in the equation, and the solutions are unlimited. God can make anything out of anybody. He’s a miracle worker. It’s His specialty. So, we look at each person as a child of God through whom He can do anything. This is the envisioned outcome of the good news of Jesus, and we love watching it happen right before our eyes.
