The Great Commission (Jesus’ final words in Matthew 28:19-20) is at the heart of NLBC. Our mission statement states:

New Life Baptist Church exists as a local gathering of baptized believers in Christ who have covenanted around the Great Commandment and Great Commission to glorify God through the exaltation of Jesus Christ.

We partner with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) for national and international missions. The SBC is a national group of some 42,000+ like minded, independent churches.  Through the SBC we support a wide variety of ministries: International Mission Board, North American Mission Board, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, six seminaries, Baptist Press, Lifeway Christian Resources, and various other ministries).

We also partner with the Baptist Convention of Iowa for statewide and regional mission ventures. Locally, we work with other like-faith churches and are a member of the Great Rivers Baptist Association.
