NewLife is committed to transforming people and transforming places through the love and power of Jesus Christ. We believe that the good news running through the Bible is one of amazing exchanges. We read of hate being exchanged for love, unfairness for justice, oppression for freedom and death for life – simply put – there is a message of hope.
The Lord’s Prayer contains this famous line, “Your Kingdom Come here on Earth as in Heaven”. It seems Jesus believes that us and our communities should become more heaven-like. newLife simply wants to be a part of what God is doing in bringing this remarkable transformation about.
What We Believe
We believe that humanity is the pinnacle of God’s creation yet is broken and in need of fixing. We believe that God is love and is relentless in his pursuit of us with His grace and mercy. Through Jesus, God wrapped himself in human flesh and became truly knowable. Jesus showed us how to live in a revolutionary way. He forgave our wrongdoings by bearing our guilt in death on the cross. He was resurrected and reigns as the King of the cosmos offering us eternal life. He invites us to believe and to follow – to join in his plan to redeem the world and all who live in it.
We believe that Jesus instigated the Church so that followers could gather in worship and discipleship and then be sent into society equipped to do good and share the good news of the Kingdom of God.
newLife believes that to see true, eternal transformation then our focus must be on helping people find and follow Jesus Christ.
