ABOUT NEW LIFE CHRISTIAN CHURCH:
New Life Christian Church started with several former members of Gateway Missionary Baptist Church; after Gateway MBC had gone through some challenges and unfortunately had to close for a while in the beginning of 2016. During the closure, some former members from Gateway MBC saw a spiritual need to restart the ministry and called upon Rev. Stanley Sargent as interim pastor.
After careful consideration of what needed to be done in the Lords name and the many challenges of what the church had faced and gone through, it was decided and voted to change the name of the church to start a new beginning. After many prayers and team brainstorming, the members decided to name the church "New Life Christian Church". On June 26, 2016 in familiar surroundings, love for the Lord, our members and community; our dedicated team wanted to continue their journey with the Lord in this house. Since that time , Pastor Sargent and New Life Christian Church has been under many attacks of Satan enemies; nevertheless; we have strong ministry leaders and God to fight our battles. We are still standing strong and the doors are open to serve the Lord and this community.
Since opening, we have started an "Outreach Ministry" for the members, community and the surrounding communities. New Life Christian Church has a strong compassion, to love and serve those who wants' to be helped and brought back to the love of Christ. We are a team ministry and together through our Lord Savior Jesus Christ we can and we will continue to build God's Ministry.
We enjoy giving God the praise, in song and spirit; most of all we enjoy learning God's Word.
Together growing spiritually, stronger rooted and grounded in the Word of God. Becoming a resource church of the gospel and doing what Christ have us to do, by stepping outside of the four walls of our comfort zone and becoming a soul saving ministry by reaching those who are lost; building new lives with spiritual walls, rebirthing lives back to Christ by the Word of God; showing love, compassion, forgiveness, and heart; not only for ourselves, also to the world. A "Changing Heart" church.
