We strive to be passionate in every expression of our corporate worship from our music to our bible based preaching. We want people to have a genuine encounter with Jesus. This requires individual passionate pursuit of His presence that runs over into every area of our worship communication.
We are a church of real people living real lives with real challanges that need the answers only the real God can provide. We have no expectations of perfection. Life is messy and we get that. It is a bundle of celebrations, tragedies, adversities and victories. Jesus is our constant anchor through them all as we "Do Life Togther."
Is it fair that some receive the hope of the gospel again and again—when so many others haven’t heard it even once? We are committed to reaching all people in all nations. But our first priority must be those who have never heard.
We exist as a missions minded church “so all can hear” the saving message of Jesus both at home and abroad.
The mandate of the church is to effectivley communicate the gospel in our own city, region, and the world. This means Bloomington/Normal, Central Illinois, and beyond. Our focus in our own city is on becoming a positive force for change and transformation in our neighborhoods and schools. All of this begins by asking Jesus to change our hearts and minds to see our community through His eyes.
This is a giving church family. We believe that generous living demonstrates Christ's work in us. We give joyfully of our time, skills, material, and money because Jesus gives so generously to us. The people of New Life, are encouraged to view themselves and their service as the church and as a resource of eternal value to the lives impacted by their faithfulness. The Christian who is unwilling to give faithfully is unwilling to go supernaturally.

If I keep doing what I've always done I'll keep getting what I've always got.
When Jesus interviens everything changes.
When I surrender to Jesus I discover the beging of real living.
Do you really have time to pretend like your perfect?
This is may be my mess, but God is making something beautiful out of it.
His plans for you are full of hope.
