The mission of New Life Community Church is to establish a holistic center for Christian renewal in the lives of individuals, families, and congregation to have a faith filled life. The role of the Church is to model God’s purpose in history, then NLCC’s charge is to “disciple so we can impact the world” through comprehensive programs that touch every area of life, i.e. spiritual, social, health, economics, and education etc. Each disciple is to demonstrate the sovereignty and supremacy of Christ through his/her spiritual impact through “good works” in their home, community, country, and/or the world. We believe in Mathew 28:19-20a, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” We have been called by God to empower God’s people to live a victorious life through loving care, powerful teaching, and the Holy Spirit having His way in our ministry.
