Our Vision


“To be a prayerful, scripture-centered community of compassionate and caring followers of Christ, equipping one another to embrace one’s gifts to reach others with the gospel”


Sunday Services

You will find that we are a vibrant, welcoming community. Come as you are. Our worship gatherings are about 90 minutes in length. The services follow different formats, but both are structured to incorporate worship, discipleship, and fellowship.

Morning Service
10:00 – 11:30am
Sunday School & Child Care Provided

All church services are now streaming on line, contact the church office for log in information.

About our Worship Style

Children are welcome to worship with us. Care is also available for infants and toddlers in the lower level nursery. Children, teens and their teachers are dismissed for Sunday School at about 10:30 a.m. Classes are available for ages three to grade ten in the lower level classrooms during the service.

More about the “Response Time”

Response Time has been a unique and cherished part of our liturgy since New Life began to worship together in 1975. During Response Time we set aside planned worship and open our heats to hear and respond to what the Spirit may want to say through the Body of Christ. In the spirit of I Corinthians 14:26 where Paul says, “When you come together. Everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation, “we value participatory worship. This unstructed time  may include prophecy, prayer, silence, testimonies of encouragement., responses to the proclaimed Word, the reading of Scripture, public  confession, corporate repentance, or any other creative way in which the Spirit of Jesus would speak to His flock that confirms to the last part of I Corinthians 14:26 where Paul concludes. “All these must be done for the strengthening of the church.”


Our Philosophy of Ministry

Since we believe that God has called us to make fully devoted followers of Jesus, and since we believe this happens primarily in the context of our relationship with Jesus Christ and the people he died for, we will facilitate an atmosphere of loving acceptance in which the gospel can be offered and received.

One God, infinite in being and perfection, existing eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory.

The Lord Jesus Christ, who is true God and true man being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary to effect salvation. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sinner’s substitute, shedding His blood for the remission of sins. He rose from the dead in the body, ascended into heaven to the right hand of the Father where He now performs the ministry of intercession. He shall come again, personally and visibly, to complete His work of salvation and fulfill the eternal plan of God.


The Holy Spirit, whose work is to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, gift and empower the believer for godly living and service.

The Scriptures, that the sixty-six books comprising the Old and New Testaments of the Bible were inspired by God and without error in the original writings. They are the complete and only infallible guide for Christian faith and practice.


People being created in the image of God, but falling through disobedience at the suggestion of Satan. Mankind is therefore lost and under the sentence of eternal death. Only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of Christ and by the agency of the Holy Spirit can we be saved from this condition.

The shed blood of Christ and His resurrection as the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.


New Life is responding to Christ’s command to love our neighbours in practical ways. Some New Life people are informally carrying out this command at their workplaces, schools, neighbourhoods and by supporting a host of non-profit organizations.  Others are actively involved in our Gleaners Closet and Bread Ministry.

What We Believe

I believe in God the Father almighty

Maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord;

Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost

Born of the virgin Mary

Suffered under Pontius Pilate

Was crucified, dead and buried;

He descended into Hell;

The third day He rose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and sits on the right hand of God the Father almighty;

From thence He shall come to judge

the living and the dead.

I believe in the holy Ghost;

The holy Christian Church;

The communion of Saints;

The forgiveness of sin;

The resurrection of the body;

And the life everlasting.

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and
We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father; God from
God, Light from Light, true God from true God; begotten not made, one in being with the Father.
Through Him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven. By the
power of the Holy Spirit He was born of the Virgin Mary and became man. For our sake He was
crucified under Pontius Pilate. He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again, in
fulfillment of the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He
will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son He is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the
forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

  • The Holy Scriptures, as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh; we affirm his virgin birth, sinless humanity, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.
  • The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  • The Holy Spirit enables believers to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The Church, the body of Christ, consists of all true believers.
  • Ultimately God will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
