What to Expect
When you come to New Life Baptist Church, expect to be loved. Expect to be included. Expect to be valued. We do not care where you are from or what your background is. We are interested in the journey ahead in Jesus Christ as a church community. Expect a blend of traditional and contemporary worship. Expect to find a theologically conservative, yet culturally diverse community. Our congregation includes people from Spencer, Candor, Elmira, Finland, Mexico, Russia, Guatemala, and Argentina. If your kids need grandpas and grandmas we’ve got them. We value families worshipping together, but we do offer a junior church during the morning message. We value fellowship. Expect coffee and refreshments both before and after the morning worship service. Expect to find a caring community of believers in Jesus Christ who love God and you, and who look to serve both!
The purpose of New Life Baptist Church is to Love God, Love Others and Serve Both. One way we accomplish this is to offer Christian education to our members and community through North Spencer Christian Academy, NSCA.
Our mission is to worship God and to serve Him, each other, and people everywhere. In the power of the Holy Spirit, we do this by Exalting God, and Equipping people for works of ministry, including Edifying believers, Encouraging others, and Evangelizing the lost.
We are to be a community of believers who, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, evangelize, encourage, educate, equip ourselves, and serve one another to exalt God.
