You will find Believers at New Life at every stage of life. Some may be returning to what they once knew while others may be starting out for the first time to live for the Lord. At whatever place one may be, when they join in at New Life there are a few questions that are always the same. What do you teach and believe? Where do I fit in at New Life? How can I help or be used? The answer to all three questions is revealed in New Life 360 .
New Life 360 is a complete view of the church and where God has placed us in the church. It not only provides a time of instruction of what New Life teaches and believes, New Life 360 also helps to prepare a path for spiritual maturity and growth in Christ. With several different phases, New Life 360 reveals a clear perspective of what God desires to do in our lives.
Listed below are a few different aspects of New Life 360 :
My New Life
When you come in contact with God you know that your life will never be the same. But if it is the first time you have felt the Lord touch your life you may be a little uncertain of what just happened or what the next steps may be. My New Life helps to explain where you are and where you are going next.
Jesus told His disciple in the book of Matthew that they were to go into all nations making disciples by teaching others what Jesus had taught them. New Life attempts to fulfill that command by setting aside a time to study what God has revealed unto us in His Word.
Gifts and Talents
God has given each of us gifts and talents. Some are well aware of the talents they possess while others are unsure of exactly what talents God has given them. Gifts and Talents Assessment classes are a time of learning about the gifts Gods instills and our responsibility concerning those gifts. If you have ever had a desire for ministry, this is a way to discover what God has called you to do.
If God cares enough to feed the sparrow then certainly He cares enough to place us in a church that will care for us. This principle of placement makes the process of joining the membership of a particular church an important step.
The ultimate privilege is to serve and each of us have been called to minister inward to the Body of Christ or outwards to lost that are looking for more. Whether it is ministering in worship, leading a small group or repairing someones car, upon discovering your gifts and talents there is a place at New Life for you to serve.
Leadership and Development
It is important that we develop skill sets that are necessary to do the ministries God has called us to. There are different classes and sessions that are made available through the year to help us grow into the potential God has placed in us.
The Bible tells us†Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15). Classes are available that focus on a deeper understanding of God’s Word and various subjects that help us grow in Christ.
As we mature in our own walk in Christ we are responsible to help others to find their way in Him. It is necessary that we never stop being involved in discipleship. Once we are at a place of stability and strength we need to help someone else go through this process of maturing by being with them through each step answering questions and leading the way. All are called to be discipled and to disciple others.
