WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

 

New Life Church is a Pentecostal, Charismatic, Full Gospel church. We believe in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit including; speaking in tongues, healing, deliverance and all the manifestations of the Holy Spirit as outlined in 1 Corinthians 12. We believe that signs and wonders are still for today. Therefore, all our Worship Services reflect this belief.

 

New Life has an active Worship service. We use instruments of praise to worship our Lord, Jesus Christ. Our worship service consists of contemporary music, played by talented musicians on the guitar, drums, organ, piano, sax and other instruments as supplied by the Lord. New Life has several expressions of worship including banner marches, dance, flags and various other displays of celebration. It is not uncommon to see children and adults dancing before the Lord during one of our weekly services.

 

In our Worship Service, we have various forms of expression toward the Lord. Below are some of the expressions you might see in our services... and the Biblical reasons for them.
