New Life Community Church of Stafford is a non-denominational, evangelical church whose vision is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, to make disciples who have an intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to encourage and train these disciples to serve faithfully in the home, the local church, the Stafford community, and beyond.
We value a caring environment, community involvement, discipleship, every member ministry, Christ-centered homes, Biblical leadership, God pleasing worship, small group fellowships, Biblically based communication, and stewardship of resources.
Our vision is a community of disciples in loving relationships and equipped to perform extra-ordinary ministry.
We are a family growing together in three areas (the following is called our Covenant of Discipleship):
- Reaching up to God: We promise, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to worship the triune God in spirit and truth – privately, in our families, and together as the body of Christ; and to obey God in every area of our lives as an expression of our worship of Him.
- Reaching in to the family: We also promise to exhibit Christ-like care and watchfulness over each other by faithfully encouraging, exhorting, and admonishing one another that each of us may grow in our obedience to and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ in all areas of our life; to demonstrate our love for the Lord and our loyalty to one another by warning and rebuking another brother who may be overtaken in a fault or sin according to the steps in Matthew 18:14-17; to employ each and every member’s gifts to the futherance of the church’s purity, worship and building up of the body of Christ; and to train our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
- Reaching out to the world: We promise to demonstrate a Christ-like character in our individual lives, in our families, in the church, and in every area where we have influence, as a witness to the world of the reality of the living God. And we promise to give our time, talent and means in the measure that God has prospered us so that we might share with those in need, first within the body of Christ, and then in the community and throughout the world, as a witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ; and to commit ourselves to the proclamation of the gospel throughout the world.
