OUR VISION:

TO FAITHFULLY SERVE AND REACH PEOPLE WITH THE LIFE-GIVING MESSAGE OF JESUS, TO SEE THEM BECOME FULLY DEVOTED FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST—LOCALLY, NATIONALLY, AND INTERNATIONALLY.

New Life Church is dedicated to loving and meeting the practical needs in our communities, while also focusing on evangelism, church planting, and training on a worldwide scale. With the Great Commission at the forefront, we strive to bring the hope of Jesus to others—from our neighborhoods to the nations, in different circumstances, socioeconomic statuses, and lifestyles.

Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All the authority of the universe has been given to Me. Now go in My authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.” Matthew 28:18-20

LOCAL MISSIONS: CITYSERVE

New Life partners with CityServe and other local churches to help restore broken lives and communities. CityServe trains, equips, and resources the local church to compassionately live out the gospel of Jesus in their community. From weekend events and providing necessities to families, to holiday outreaches and building community among groups of people in similar circumstances, our hope is to empower our friends as they raise their families and live life each day.

NATIONAL MISSIONS

The Association of Related Churches (ARC) is made up of churches, pastors, and leaders with a vision to see healthy and thriving churches in every community that are reaching people with the message of Jesus. The ARC mentors pastors and churches, providing guidance, encouragement, and friendship. As a founding member of the ARC, Pastor Rick launched New Life Church as one of the first ARC churches.

The Surge Project is focused exclusively on planting churches across the globe that start Christian communities, produce more churches, and train disciples. Another major endeavor for Surge is working with local churches to tackle infrastructure initiatives, such as water wells, medical aid, and orphan care. Surge has a presence in nearly 143 countries and actively plants in nearly every corner of the world. NLC partners with Surge to provide missionaries who support these church plants.
