Paul’s Letters to Church Leaders

Dear Parents, As the early church expanded outside Jerusalem, new churches were planted in various cities. Each church needed godly leaders to help it grow and stay true to the gospel. Paul understood this need, which is why he wrote letters to some of the leaders in the church. Two of these leaders were Timothy and Titus. Timothy was Paul’s friend. He had traveled with Paul and helped him. Now Timothy was a leader at the church in Ephesus. Titus was a Gentile believer. He had traveled with Paul too. Now Titus was on the island of Crete to help train more church ...

The Mural in the Hall of Faith

New Life began on Sunday, August 10, 1997. Last year, we celebrated our 20th year anniversary. We built and moved into our current building on Sunday, August 12, 2007, which was our tenth year anniversary. God has been good and faithful to us all these years. He has done some amazing things in and through us. I hope and pray that God will do even more great God-sized things in the years to come through New Life. When we decided to build and have a place of our own, someone needed to come up with architectural concepts and design. Unfortunately and strangely, Leadership ...

EASTER: Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection

Dear Parents, God’s law for the people was plain. Read Deuteronomy 6:5. But God’s people, and all people, have broken the law. We have loved other things more than we love God. That is sin. Jesus’ purpose for coming to earth was to save us from our sin. (Matt. 1:21) Why did Jesus have to die? Why couldn’t He just say, “You are forgiven”? God is just and requires due payment for sin. To simply forgive sin without requiring a payment would be unjust. According to God’s Word, the payment of sin is death. (Rom. 6:23) But not only is God just, He is also ...

Up to 50% from Church and 50% or More from Myself

New Life’s short-term mission trips’ preparation is in full swing. A couple of the trips have taken place already. And the deadline to sign up for the remaining trips is March 31. I hope many of you will go on a trip this year to encourage the missionaries out there, serve God and experience Him deeply. From the earlier years of New Life, we have always had a very unique and special policy when it came to raising funds for these trips. Members who have been here for a while know this. However, due to many not being familiar with the policy I would like to address it ...
