"And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all." - Acts 4:33
Here you will find a church with a warm, family atmosphere, and an environment for growing in the grace of God.
We believe New Life in Christ Baptist Church is a place where you will find the love of God expressed through relevant Bible messages, Christ honoring music, and a church family that loves each other.
This is a church where Christians have banded together to uplift the name of Jesus and to exalt the Word of God in their lives. Also, New Life in Christ Baptist is dedicated to reaching lost people with the good news of Jesus Christ.
You may be used to showing up at the front door of the church and having each member of your family ushered off to a different part of the building for "age appropriate" teaching. At New Life in Christ Baptist, families stay together. Children are Welcome...Another thing you may find unique about our church is the inclusion of children in our worship services. Don't bother looking for the nursery; we don't have one. We encourage all families to bring their children into the sanctuary. Cooing babies don't bother us one bit. Moreover, we believe it is important for children to worship with their parents, and to be taught how to sit through the service. We have a family room where you can sit with your little one and still see and hear the church service.
EXPECT a friendly spirit. Friendliness is a natural attribute among people who love God. Our visitors, who always receive a warm welcome, appreciate the courtesy and cordiality of the church families.
EXPECT not to be embarrassed. You visit us as a welcomed and respected guest. We do hand out a visitors card and acknowledge your presence in the service but not in an embarrassing way; we want you to know that we are thrilled you have come gathered with us as we exalt the Lord Jesus Christ. At the close of the sermon, those that have never accepted Christ as their Saviour and wishing to do so are invited to let their wishes be known at which time we have a worker share the Bible with them about God's way of salvation through Christ.
EXPECT the worship to be spiritual. Our worship consists only of those elements which were part of the worship of the early church. We sing, pray, fellowship, preach God's Word for our instruction and give of our means in offerings. We work to maintain the attitude Jesus enjoined when He said, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24)
EXPECT to find our authority to be in the Bible. By following the teachings of Jesus and His apostles, we are simply Christians - just as were the disciples of the first century. The peaching and teaching are Bible based since the Scriptures are sufficient for our every need. (2Timothy 3:16-17)
What kind of church are we?
Our Message is Precise.
We believe that every person is in need of salvation and must repent and believe the gospel by faith in order to be saved.
Our Motive is Pure.
Our goal is to reach the world for Christ so that all people might praise and GLORIFY GOD for His wonderful love and free gift of salvation.
Our Method is Practical.
1. We endeavor to reach as many with the Gospel as we can. We are actively engaged in spreading the news that Jesus came to save.
2. We endeavor to conform our lives without compromise to the Biblical pattern of holiness and love. We reinforce our families with the teachings of God concerning the proper roles of the husband and wife and their responsibility to have and train their children.
Our Ministry is Personal.
Each person is unique and special in the eyes of God. We are taught by our Savior Jesus Christ that we would be known as His disciples by the love that we have for one another. Thus it is our desire to sincerely love each person and to minister through the power and grace of Jesus Christ.
