Who We Are

Jesus our Lord is the center of our fellowship, uniting and fitting us all together as one body.

We at NewLife Fellowship want to:
Help more people enjoy new life through faith in Jesus Christ,
Help more people accept this new life Jesus offers,
Help each other enjoy the life He gives us,
Help each other through our pains and difficulties, and
Encourage each other as we live for Christ.

We offer weekly worship services, in which we gather to praise God, learn more about the good news in a Bible-based message, and encourage one another.

Every week, we have nursery care for pre-K children and classes for elementary school children. Parking is free.

If you would like more information about the good news of Jesus Christ, if you would like to accept His offer of forgiveness and new life, please contact us for further help.

This web site contains information about our mission and vision, our beliefs and a profile of our pastor, Bermie Dizon. You will find a list of ministries where we are actively involved in. We welcome you to participate in any group.

We feature our youth and the exciting activities they are involved in. We also provide an archive of sermons for your spiritual food.

We hope you find this web site useful. Please send us your comments and suggestions at [email protected] or [email protected]

We love to help people enjoy new life in Christ!
