NLC VALUES

WE BELIEVE IN BIBLICAL AUTHORITY

God has spoken to us throughout the Bible and we recognize it as the final authority.

II TIMOTHY 3:16-17


WE ARE UNIFIED   

New Life Chapel is built upon the vision God gave to Pastor Lonnie. We will passionately defend that vision and our unity.

Ephesians 4:1-3


WE ARE BUILT ON TRUST

We Trust God. We trust our pastors. We trust our leaders. We trust one another. 

Joshua 1


WE PURSUE EXCELLENCE  

Excellence honors God and inspires people! We aim for 5-Star Service in every area of New Life Chapel. 

We give God our best and seek excellence in all that we do. 

Colossians 3:23-24


WE CELEBRATE MOVEMENT

We are liquid in method: We value a church atmosphere and attitude that is willing to risk changing our methods to reach our culture. We believe our role is to create environments that are conducive to the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of people. A relevant environment combined with competent leadership will allow us to connect with our audience. 

I Corinthians 9:19-23


WE ARE CONTRIBUTORS, NOT CONSUMERS

God wants everyone to have a sense of belonging and importance. He helps us connect with our God-given gifts and divine purpose through the local church. So, we look for a way to get everyone involved in using their gifts in the church as we all help people "get it." 

Ephesians 4:11-16


WE ARE A GLOCAL CHURCH

There is a Global and Local Calling for New Life Chapel! We all have a platform. We believe that all believers have the responsibility of carrying out the great commission in their sphere of influence and to the ends of the world. 

Acts 1:8


WE STRIVE TO BUILD A MULTI-GENERATIONAL LEGACY

Every generation is important. We will pass along the knowledge, skills, and opportunities that have been entrusted to us. We honor those of age and the wisdom they possess. We also recognize God is pouring out His Spirit on young people in these days. Our church is multi-generational and we endeavor to provide ministries to strengthen the whole family. 

Exodus 18:1-23; Acts 2:17-18


WE ARE BUILDING A MOVEMENT, NOT A MONUMENT

We take God, His Word, His Church and the Great Commission seriously. We are focused on continual growth, reaching people for Christ and expanding our influence for the gospel. We will let the unchurched population determine our growth. 

Acts 12:24


WE WANT TO SEE THE LOST GET SAVED AND THE SAVED GET VICTORY 

When people far from God realize that God loves and forgives them; they want to get saved. When saved people realize that because of Jesus and the power of His Word, God accepts and approves of them, they get victory in life. 

Matthew 28:18-20
