Touching lives with the transforming love of Jesus
Experience God’s Love
Through daily prayer and weekly worship we seek stronger faith and deeper intimacy with God, drawing on His perfect love to transform our lives and equip us to touch the lives of others.
Share it with Everyone
God loves everyone and so will we, reaching out to people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life, reflecting the diversity of God’s world.
Roll Up Our Sleeves
We’ll demonstrate Jesus’s love by rolling up our sleeves and taking practical action. We’ll serve our neighbours by addressing their practical as well as spiritual needs.
Meet People Where they Are
We won’t wait for people to come to us. We’ll go to them no matter where they are in life or their journey with Jesus: from non-believers to mature Christians, locally, regionally and globally.
Values that Guide the Mission
Sovereignty of God
God created all there is and He rules over it. That means that our journey of faith involves every aspect of our lives, everyday. Ministry at New Life Church will reflect that our integration of faith and life.
Jesus is the Way
Believing in Jesus as the Son of God — who came down to earth in human form, died on the cross and rose three days later — is the one and only means to salvation and eternal life.
Experiencing the Holy Spirit
The mystery, power and awe of the Holy Spirit come alive when you live with Jesus. We celebrate and expect the Holy Spirit’s presence in our prayer life, in corporate worship, and in our journey of faith.
We strive to nurture relationships with people who need Jesus, inviting them to encounter the gospel.
Authority of the Bible
The Bible is the revelation of God’s nature and His redemption plan for a sinful mankind. As such, we believe the Bible is different from any other book and it shapes and directs our whole life.
A Generous Spirit
God owns everything we have and gifts it to us to take care of. Whether money or abilities, whether time or all creation’s resources, we want to use it wisely, take care of it, and share with those who don’t have. In this way we will impact our neighbourhood and demonstrate what life in Christ is all about.
Freedom to be Bold
We love the freedom we have in Jesus. New Life Church encourages people to express themselves in creative ways that honor and glorify God, especially in corporate worship gatherings. We are bold to stretch and to risk for the sake of vibrant and creative ministry.
