Whatever your background and place in life we hope you’ll feel welcome at New Life. We’re a church full of ordinary people just like you who are trying to follow God. Our goal is to help you take your next spiritual step whatever it may be.
We know entering a new church building can be a frightening thing at times so we want to answer some common questions and provide you with information that will make your first visit an easier one.
What are services like?
First and foremost you can expect to be accepted as you are. Regardless of who you are or where you’re from you’ll be loved at New Life. We don’t care “how you look.” Wear a suit or jeans – you’re welcome to join us. During a service you can always expect uplifting music and a challenging Bible based message. Our desire is to exalt or make much of Jesus Christ in our worsihp. We sing a wide assortment of contemporary songs and traditional hymns. Like King David in the Psalms, we like to use a variety of instruments to worship God. We usually sing as a congregation, have various members and church music groups sing specials, and listen to Scripture being read and taught. At the conclusion of our Pastor’s message we have an invitation which provides a time for reflection and response. We always close our services with a closing chorus of praise.
In general, we hope you’ll find our services are real. We don’t put on a “show;” we desire to worship God and proclaim His truths. We hope you’ll find our teaching is relevant. We believe Scripture addresses man’s deepest needs and we try to present them in a clear and timely way that applies to your life. We hope you’ll find New Life as a place of relationships. We are a church family. We’re not perfect, but we desire to support each other.
Where do I go?
