What does it mean to be a New Lifer?

As we become one church in many locations it will be important that we all think the same way about church. One of the most important questions someone could ask about church is, "what is expected of me at New Life Church"? We want to be as simple as we can about how we talk about church. So here are three simple phrases to help us remember what it means to be a New Lifer:

  • Make a Commitment- Jesus calls us to "take up our cross and follow Him." Making a commitment of your life to follow Christ is no small thing. However, there is no better way to live your life. Commit your life to Christ and His church!
  • Make a Friend- The Christian life is meant to be lived in community. The most practical application of that community at New Life Church is being a part of a Life Group (small group). It is here that we make friends and practice the "one another" commands given to us in God's word. We hope you'll jump into a Life Group real soon!
  • Make a Difference- Finally, a New Lifer is someone who makes a difference in their world. This can happen through acts of service at church or in the community. But the biggest difference you can make in this life is introducing someone else to new life in Jesus Christ. Tell someone about new life in Jesus Christ today!
