When Pastor Linda began praying about a name for our church in 2008, God gave her a single scripture, 2 Corinthians 5:17. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come."
This simply means that individuals get a fresh start. No matter what they have done or not done in the past, they can begin anew, no Judgement. Just the Love of Christ to make new decisions and live out their purpose. All things are New. Yep, it's like getting a New Life!
Evangelistic is directly connected with Matthew 28:19-20. "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
Ministries comes into play because we are all ministers of the gospel. The Bible says in I Peter 4:9-11, "Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Based on the gift each one has received, use it to serve others, as good managers of the varied grace of God. If anyone speaks, it should be as one who speaks God’s words; if anyone serves, it should be from the strength God provides, so that God may be glorified through Jesus Christ in everything. To Him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen." Simply put we serve (minister) to one another and to those in our circle of influence. Thus New Life Evangelistic Ministries is made up of several different ministries. each member has a gift and they are encouraged to use their gifts to the glory and honor of God.
International really speaks for itself. Every nation, every tribe and every tongue is welcome. We would love to see you at NLEM where you are designed by God to be YOU!
