New Life Community Church is an exciting new work of God in Pulaski. Our church is a diverse community of followers of Christ who believe that new life found in Christ is available to every person, regardless of their past or present circumstances. We welcome you into a dynamic Christian community where you can connect with God, one another, and with opportunities to make a difference in our changing world.
What to expect at New Life
You can expect to be EDIFIED and EQUIPPED.
Everyone needs to be encouraged and built up throughout life. There is an abundance of negativity in nearly every environment around us. We believe the church is the one place you should be able to step into and be edified. You really do matter and you are of great value to God and to us!
At New Life you can also expect to be equipped to live the abundant life Jesus promised. We believe through teaching, preaching, bible studies, prayer and small groups every person coming through the doors will be equipped with the tools to be the person God created us to be.
Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, we strive to come alongside you to help you take your next steps. Knowing who we are in Christ and what His purpose is for our lives is our passion.
We do our best to make sure every person at New Life knows they are loved and cared for. Fostering an environment of connecting with others is important to us.
Creating a culture of empowerment is something we take seriously at New Life. We think it's essential that every person realizes they are a leader in some capacity. We provide many opportunities for personal growth.
The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5).
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. When we repent of our sins and place our complete trust in Christ alone for our salvation, we are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Those saved relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6). The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire these gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10).
Healing of the human body is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. (Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; I Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29).
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).
Because we value people, we will deliberately build trusting relationships with those in our community allowing us to share the life changing gospel of Jesus Christ.
Intimacy with the Lord
Because we value a personal relationship with God, we will rely on His strength, guidance, direction and intervention through prayer, knowing it is critical to depend on Him to reveal His specific plans for every area of our lives as we spend time with Him.
Because we value God’s Word, we will build all ministries on the foundation of the Word of God and discover together God’s truth as we see God’s revelation of Himself to all people and the relevance of His Word to us today.
Because we value the incredible love of God demonstrated to us on the cross, we will design all ministries to bring glory to God, since He is worthy, in worshiping Him with our voices and lifestyles as a reflection of our love for Him.
Because we value authentic relationships, we will establish ministries that promote unity, with honest and open transparency to support each other in meaningful practical ways so together we can be more effective.
