About Us


New Life Church is a place where people are enabled to grow into a deeper relationship with God and to creatively impact our world. It is a place of healing and restoration where we see God using His Church (the people) and His Word (the Bible) as a catalyst for the discovery of Christ. 


Our desire is to love and serve each other, our community and our world as Jesus did, in spite of our imperfections. Through this service and the ministries of our church, we long to see people discover true hope and come to wholeness in Christ. 


We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us and for our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.


New Life Church is a body of people, unified in purpose around a common identity, Jesus Christ. We are passionate about discovering what God has for us and serving the community we live in. We strongly believe that New Life Church has been called to bring healing and freedom to the broken and bound up. Only Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross makes this possible.


"I will give you back your health and heal your wounds," says the LORD.  //Jeremiah 30:17 

We are a church where members love each other regardless of age, dress, music style or church history. Come and join us on any Sunday morning at 10:30. We’d love to get to know you.
