NEW HERE?

WELCOME TO NEW LIFE!

At New Life, we are all about the Gospel of Jesus!

We gather together to read the scriptures, to sing to God and to one another, to hear the word preached, observe the ordinances of Lord's Supper and baptism, and pray.

We also have discipleship classes for all ages where we learn what it looks like to follow Jesus together.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. We hope this page will help you know what to expect when you visit us on a Sunday morning. We can’t wait to meet you!

Sunday Worship

Our phi­los­o­phy of wor­ship is sim­ple and is derived from the com­mands of Scrip­ture. We believe that when we gather, we should:

READ THE SCRIPTURES

Paul com­manded Tim­o­thy to devote him­self to the pub­lic read­ing of Scrip­ture (1 Tim. 4:13a). Because of this, we struc­ture our wor­ship ser­vices to devote time to the pub­lic read­ing of Scripture.

SING TO GOD AND TO ONE ANOTHER

Worship through song has the dual pur­pose of hon­or­ing God and edi­fy­ing the church (Eph. 5:19). Our wor­ship team plays a vari­ety of songs that fea­ture God-glorifying, bib­li­cal lyrics, rang­ing from ancient hymns of our faith to songs writ­ten specif­i­cally for New Life.

PREACH THE WORD

Paul wrote to Tim­o­thy, “I charge you in the pres­ence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the liv­ing and the dead, and by his appear­ing and his king­dom: preach the word…” (2 Tim. 4:1–2). We believe that one of the pri­mary ways that God speaks to us is through the preach­ing of the Word. Our pastors preach verse-by-verse through Scripture explaining and applying the Bible as the authors intended.

OBSERVE THE ORDINANCES

At New Life, we invite all baptized believers to receive the Lord’s Supper weekly in our worship service, which symbolizes our communion with God and one another through faith in Jesus our Lord.

We also regularly celebrate baptism at the end of our worship services, which symbolizes our death with Christ and our resurrection to new life through faith in him (Rom. 6:4). Those being baptized share the story of how they came to faith in Jesus and are immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in obedience to Jesus (Matt. 28:19-20).

PRAY TO GOD THROUGH CHRIST OUR MEDIATOR

Paul writes, “Con­tinue stead­fastly in prayer, being watch­ful in it with thanks­giv­ing” (Col. 4:2). We believe that we can do noth­ing apart from God, and we believe that God answers us when we pray to Him through Christ our Medi­a­tor. We do not use prayer as a “filler” before mov­ing on to another aspect of the ser­vice. Rather, we are inten­tional regard­ing how we pray and what we pray for.

Preschoolers, Children, and Youth in Worship

Children of all ages are welcome in our Sunday morning worship services. Preschool care is also available for children under four. For older children and youth, worship resources are available to encourage them to actively engage in the service.

Discipleship Classes

We offer discipleship classes for adults focused on applying biblical truth to daily life. Our NextGen ministries focus on engaging children and youth in the study of God’s Word and encouraging them to joyfully respond in faith to the gospel.
