WHERE IT'S OK, IF YOU'RE NOT 'OK'
This is a quick view of what we do as a church. The church is the people. We are people becoming the church and making a difference, because of what Christ has done, and is doing, in our lives.
LIFEGROUPS ARE A HUGE PART OF NEWLIFE. THEY ARE THE BEST WAY TO DIG DEEPER IN YOUR FAITH AND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY! AS OUR CHURCH GROWS, WE KNOW IT’S CLOSE TO IMPOSSIBLE TO DO ALL THESE THINGS DURING A SUNDAY SERVICE. THAT IS WHY JOINING A LIFEGROUP IS SO CRUCIAL.
Our Lifegroups happen in sessions – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Lifegroups are fun, low-pressure and a great chance to make new friends and grow in your spiritual journey!
We believe in baptism by immersion (going fully under water as opposed to being sprinkled). Baptism symbolizes our identification with Jesus’ death (going under the water) and resurrection (coming up out of the water). Baptism does not save you, only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring — it is the symbol of the commitment that you have already made in your heart. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ should be baptized. We do not baptize children until they are old enough to understand and believe, generally around age 12. However, we allow for parental discretion to determine when they think their kids are ready. We do not practice infant baptism, but we do offer baby dedication opportunities. Baby dedication is a covenant of support and encouragement throughout the parenting process, between the church and the parents.
As soon as a person decides to believe in Christ, they can and should, be baptized. (Acts 2:41)
As a church we love hearing stories of life change — that’s why we do everything we do! Yet we understand people’s fear of public speaking. We will offer opportunities for people to share their story though a pre-recorded video that will be shown during their baptism. This is optional, but highly encouraged, and we'll take as many takes as necessary.
