Often at New Life you will hear, “Our purpose is to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.” Just as Paul encouraged the Ephesian church to, “reach unity in the faith and knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ,” the members of New Life strive to carry out that great mission through five areas that form the acronym JESUS because it really is all about Him.
J. Joyous Worship
Through singing, prayer, studying, and listening to sermons we worship Jesus with all of our lives.
E. Equipping Believers to be Christlike
There is so much to learn about Jesus. This side of heaven we will never know it all, but New Life has a series of classes designed to take you from membership, to learning how to be mature in your faith, to finding the talents God has given you, to finally finding the mission God has for your life.
S. Sharing Our Faith
In Matthew 28, Jesus doesn’t pull any punches as He sets the vision for every believer that dares to follow Him: go into the world and tell people about me. New Life takes this seriously, but has fun with it as we serve our community through “random” acts of kindness, events at church, and our growing VBS just to name a few.
U. Using Our Talents for Service
Jesus never gave anyone a hall pass and let them sit out of the game. He gave us all unique talents and places where we can use those talents. One of the very important aspects of being a Christian is serving others, believers and non-believers alike and New Life will help you find your spot when you are ready.
S. Small Groups for Fellowship
We are a church that meets together on Sunday and then meets in small groups throughout the week to discuss Jesus and just be together. You can never have too many friends, especially those you share a faith with.
