New Life Fellowship Church is a community of people who are committed to glorifying God. Being resolved that the Historic teachings of the Reformation provide the necessary framework for God-honoring ministry we are further committed to its bedrock principles.
Our central Lake County Illinois location provides a unique opportunity to sow the seeds of the Reformation in an area where these precious truths are noticeably absent. Believing that the Lord has called us to this place and seeking to maximize our efforts we will:
1. Be people who are prayerful, sacrificial, humble, and teachable before the Word of God, always growing and being refined in our grasp of God's truth and grace. Acts 11:19-30
2. Seek to cultivate a ministry mindset of Church Planting. Acts 13:1-3
3. Cut against the grain of the empire building mentality that is so prevalent in Church ministry today by branching off in small numbers into Church plants through central/northwest Lake County.
4. Seek to encourage our young men in full time vocational ministry and support them in their training in preparation for Church planting.
5. Pray and Plan for new Church plant opportunities.
6. Be relentless in envisioning ways to penetrate our communities with the truth of Christ.
We have no illusions that our single Church or our position on the Historic teachings of the Reformation is sufficient to renew all of central Lake County Illinois, spiritually, socially, and culturally. We are therefore committed to this Church planting vision, while at the same time praying and working for a rediscovery of the Historical gospel message in all the congregations in the area.
