Service is a big part of our vision for New Life Church. And while it is clear from scripture that we aren’t saved by good works, God gives us good work to do. Paul says that it is only by grace that we are saved (Ephesians 2:8,9). But in the very next breath, he says in (vs. 10) that we are “God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
It is clear then, that we can only serve the mission of God if we have first grown in the grace of God. But once we have received grace, service is a very natural and grateful response for all God has done for us in Jesus Christ.
At New Life Church we serve for God’s glory. It’s not about us. We serve to please our Heavenly Father. We serve outside or inside the church using our gifts and stewarding our resources.
- Serve our Community - God calls us to join him in mission by serving people around us, proclaiming and living out the good news of Jesus. We serve in various ways with individual, group and church-wide projects.
- Serve in the Church – Ministry Teams help people serve within our church. From prayer to worship, children and youth, up front ministries and behind the scenes ministries. God is pleased with all different types of service.
- Spiritual DNA – Do you know what your spiritual DNA is? At New Life we help people discover and use their gifts. Each of us has unique gifts, strengths and abilities that God has given us. We want to help you discover these.
- Stewardship - God also entrusts resources to us and calls us to steward those resources for his glory. Do you know what the Bible says about money? How should you spend your time? We teach stewardship out of obedience to Jesus.
