Who We Are

NewLifeTC is a spirit filled, Christ centered church. We are a Baptist Church, maintaining the theological and doctrinal principles generally consistent with Baptist beliefs.

Our mission is to worship God in Spirit and in truth; to proclaim the gospel of Jesus the Christ; to serve in the world in the name of the Lord; to carry the message of new life in Jesus into the world.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are charcaterized by praise and worship, prayer, a time to greet and fellowship, and preaching.

What is the community like?
Our community is urban, with surrounding suburban like areas. We are a Shore community, typical in size, population, etc. for the Jersey Shore region. Our focus with respect to community is broader than our immediate location.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you are not a Christian, we encourage you to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord today. We encourage you as well to seek out a community of believers with whom to be connected. Consider NewLifeTC as such a community of believers for you. We will accept you with our arms wide open, and walk with you as we together walk with the Lord.
