Help Us Reach Our Community



We want to reach our community and we need your help to do it.  Our goal is to connect with our neighbors through mailings, invite cards, social media, and banners.  In order to do this, we hope to raise $4000 of special giving.  If you would like to play a part, make a gift, and include a note that it’s for “outreach”.  Thanks for helping in the mission of Christ. 

 

Assurance of Salvation



Do you ever struggle with feelings of whether or not you are going to heaven?  You're not the first person. God's word tells us that it's possible to know where we'll be spending eternity.  
 
We've prepared some materials that will walk you through what the Bible teaches on this topic.  These self-study materials are designed to give you a stronger sense of your standing with God.  You can find these online.  Or if you would like to talk to someone, please email us at connect@newlifecommunitychurch.net.

On Mission



Our purpose as a church is to...

“reach people for Christ and get them grounded, growing and on mission”.



In this post we’re going to look at what it means to be “on mission”


Someone who is on mission for Christ…




1) Makes a commitment to the body of Christ
.

Scripture says that we’re all members of one body –the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12) Someone who is on mission for Christ recognizes the importance of the body of Christ and makes a commitment to play their part as members of Christ’s church.



2) Makes a contribution to the cause of Christ.
The Bible says that Christ’s ministry is done as each person plays their part (Eph 4:16) Someone who is on mission for Christ eagerly seeks to make a contribution to the cause of Christ. (1 Peter 4:10).



3) Pursues their unique role in the mission of Christ.

God has given us each a unique life purpose in the mission of Christ. Each person is created on purpose and for a purpose. As Ephesians 2:10 says, “…we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”. Someone who is on mission wants to discover and do those “good works” which God has prepared in advance. An “on mission” follower of Jesus desires to understand and increasingly prioritize their life around their God-given role in the cause of Christ.|

Are You Reading Your Bible?



Are you reading through the book of 1 Chronicles?  You are if you're following our Bible Reading Challenge.  The Bible is the inspired word of God that helps us to know God and follow Him.  Many of us own a Bible, but don't have a regular plan for reading it.  
 
To help bring focus, we've put together a Bible reading plan that brings you through a chapter of the Bible each day.  If you follow this day-to-day checklist, you'll be taking the next step toward knowing more of God's Word. 

Check out our website to download our Bible Reading Challenge checklist.
