1. NO CHURCH EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
This is an easy place to attend and invite friends. We love new people! Our VIPs are our first time guests, not those who have been here the longest. We unapologetically tilt towards the needs of the outsider, rather than the preferences of the insider. We welcome you just as you are! No church background. No special clothes. No Bible knowledge required. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome and encouraged to explore the Bible, Jesus, and the Christian faith with us, at your own pace.
2. EXCEPTIONAL HEALTH AND UNITY
We are contagious with joy, honor, and gratitude. This is a positive joy-filled place. We love to laugh. We believe the best in people, speak vision and life over them, and help them discover the dreams God has for them. We are a generation of honor, known for what we are for, not against. We are FOR seeing broken lives changed by Christ. We are FOR new beginnings. We are FOR loving and serving others. We are FOR communicating in gracious rather than judgmental ways. And we are FOR seeing all churches rise up and advance the gospel. We are united around our mission, and aggressively defend our unity.
3. A MINDSET OF ‘GET TO’ NOT ‘HAVE TO’
We minister from a mindset of God’s goodness and favor, and see all serving and giving as something we “get to do” rather than “have to do”. Nothing is more fun and rewarding than advancing the good news of Jesus, with people you love. This is our highest calling and we get to do it!
4. INTENTIONAL SIMPLICITY
We limit our platform so we can unleash our ministry. We believe we can accomplish more through the simple platform of groups and teams, than through a multitude of programs and events. This enables us to leverage our resources and people for maximum results, both inside and outside the church. This includes “Shadowing” & “Apprenticeship” for serving inside New Life Church, and “Strategic Partnerships” for serving outside New Life Church. Our simplicity enables us to reach more, accomplish more, & enjoy more.
5. MULTIGENERATIONAL COMMITMENT
We are church-family committed to equipping, empowering and mobilizing all ages of people, with special emphasis on the younger generations. Uniting the wisdom of the “more experienced” with the zeal of “younger believers” allows us to grow from strength to strength. United, we will model our passion for Christ, His Church, and making a positive difference in the world.
6. PERPETUAL GROWTH
We are here to be part of a movement in our generation, and believe the best is yet to come. We will never stop growing – neither individually nor collectively. People matter too much, to do anything less! We unapologetically measure our progress, and adapt what we do, so that it is culturally relevant and highly effective.
7. ALL FOR HIS GLORY
It’s not about us. It’s all about Jesus! So we walk humbly before our God and others, give Him our best, and never stop celebrating and promoting the riches of being filled with new life in Jesus Christ.
