Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith
Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
II Peter 3:18
We strive to make every visitor feel welcome and accepted as a part of our church family. When Jesus lived on this earth, He would stop and take the time to minister to the social outcasts, the down-and-outers, the irreligious, and those searching for answers; even so we believe it is important for us as Christians to do the same.
Our first and foremost desire is to see people come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. We support those who seek to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are not charismatic, contemporary, Pentecostal, or ecumenical. We are a church that stands for traditional values for the home, marriage, and work. We do not seek to entertain people but seek to provide a place where people can come and worship the True and Living God in spirit and in truth through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We desire is to see lives changed by the power of God. The Gospel isn't just for the lost to be saved but also for the Christian to grow. Christ's command wasn't to just preach to the lost but also to teach those who put their faith in Him.
Our purpose is to bring the light of the glorious Gospel to a dark and sinful world. The further society strays from God, the darker the world becomes. Where good once reigned, evil now controls. Where good was once praised, evil is now lifted up. The darker society becomes, the more sin runs free. The more sin is allowed to flourish the more good will be punished. Society is digressing rapidly and plunging headlong into wickedness and the only hope for those trapped in the darkness of sin is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The darker society becomes, the brighter the Gospel will shine.
Our vision is to see people rescued from the misery and shame sin has brought into their lives: to see hope in the eyes of the hopeless; to see shattered lives mended; to see broken relationships restored. Our vision at New Life Baptist Church is to see people be given a new life through faith in Jesus Christ. Our vision isn't just for those without Christ but also those who have strayed from their faith in Christ. We believe God loves everybody, the saved and unsaved alike. God desires a personal relationship with those who have walked away from Him just as much as He desires to save a lost soul from the punishment of sin.
