Why Do We Tell Stories?

Stories bring honor and glory to Jesus Christ.

God is at work all around us and we can give him praise when we highlight all that He is up to. We do everything we can to let the church and the rest of the world in on the great things God is accomplishing, which deepens our worship of him through that knowledge.

Stories encourage the saints.

As our eyes are opened to what God is doing around us, we are encouraged to take our eyes off ourselves and put our focus on God and His work. We are encouraged to press on in the midst of disheartening circumstances, suffering and trials and daily discouragements. We are given the gift of hope as we remember the God we serve, the One who keeps His promises and is fulfilling His redemption story right in our midst.

Stories exhort our people to action.

Stories can be used to move in the hearts and actions of our body of believers as the Holy Spirit works in them to give them courage to embrace mission, step out in faith, and to believe God can use them. Stories remind us that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

Prejudices and discrimination happen in the most unlikely places. And, they’re not all based on skin color. Why is it that people in their 40s or older are hesitant or unwilling to join a church that primarily has college students? New Life not only wants older members, they're...

Houston, We Have Not Forgotten

Tragedy strikes, then life goes on. You know the feeling -- especially when that tragedy has happened to you. So this is how Houston must feel right now. The news outlets, the media, and many Americans have moved on, but as those who felt it hit very close to home, we at New Life cannot. In...
