Who We Are
The Dream Of New Life...
It is the dream of a multi-site campus church where the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, and the confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement.
It is the dream of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the thousands of residents in North San Joaquin County.
It is the dream of welcoming 2,000+ members into our church family - loving, learning, laughing, and living in harmony together.
It is the dream of developing people to spiritual maturity through Bible studies, small groups, seminars and retreats.
It is the dream of equipping every believer for a significant ministry by helping them discover the gifts and talents God gave them.
It is the dream of empowering every member to view life as going on the mission with Jesus.
It is the dream of developing a regional Ministry Training Center which offers high quality, relevant and rigorous academic and experiential ministerial training to help students achieve their maximum potential for Jesus Christ.
It is the dream of training up gifted, educated counselors who will operate New Life Counseling Center which will offer low cost counseling services to individuals, couples and families to help them navigate through lifeâ€™s difficult challenges.
It is the dream of establishing New Life Family Services, a world class Non Profit Organization (NPO) within the city of Lathrop that will partner with the communities leadership to help resource and meet the social and economic needs of all the age groups living within the city.
It is the dream of sending out dozens of career missionaries and church workers all around the world.
It is the dream of sending our members by the hundreds on short-term mission projects locally, nationally and all around the world.
It is the dream of starting at least one new campus church every 18-24 months.
It is the dream of obtaining at least twenty acres of land, on which will be built a regional church for north San Joaquin County-with beautiful, yet simple, facilities including a worship center seating thousands, a counseling and prayer center, classrooms, Bible College facilities, athletic facilities, and a recreation area. All of this will be designed to minister to the local person - spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially.
I stand before you today and state in confident assurance that these dreams will become reality. Why? Because I believe they are inspired by God.
