The Purpose Statement of New Life Baptist Church
 
 
 
 
 
 
Simple. Biblical. God Glorifying.
 
NLBC purposes to be a Thriving Community of Christ Followers, Striving Together for the Faith of the Gospel.
 
Our purpose as a church is derived from a couple of New Testament passages. Here they are:
 

Philippians 1:27-30

  27 Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear  of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, 28 and not in  any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation,a] and that from God. 29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, 30 having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me.
 

Acts 2:42-47

42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the churchb] daily those who were being saved
