The purpose of New Life Church is to produce contagious followers of Christ.
The church’s constitution spells it out in these words: “The purpose of this organization shall be to produce fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ in obedience to the Great Commission as stated in Matthew 28:19-20.” This purpose is carried out by proclaiming the Gospel to those who are in need of a Savior, by building up believers, by training and utilizing leaders within the church, and ultimately by planting other churches of like purpose.
New Life Church is committed to reaching people for Christ and to helping the community of believers
grow to full spiritual maturity. These are some of our core values that guide us as we pursue these goals…
…We value the Bible and its accurate teaching. The Bible provides the necessary instruction for making disciples.
...We value praying diligently as way of expressing our dependence on God's working.
…We value cooperating with God’s heart
for the hurting and lost around us. Our health and vigor depends on not only looking to our own interests but also the interests of others.
…We value intentional ministry to children and youth, providing alternatives to the addictive culture around us.
…We value family and seek to provide tangible and practical help for families.
…We value relationships between believers as the key arena of spiritual growth.
…We value ministry that touches people’s lives more than we value facility.
…We value practical care for the weak, the addicted, the poor, and the hurting
…We value participation in the work of the Gospel around the world by partnering with missionaries.
…We value deployment of growing believers to touch their world as God gives opportunity.
…We value discipleship which encourages people toward maturity in Christ.
…We value worship that is centered on God even as we strive to be friendly and upbeat.
