who we are

New Life Church is a vibrant multi-site church community in West Linn and Wilsonville, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. We've discovered the joy, freedom and purpose that can only be found in the life given over to God. And we want to share that new life with as many people as possible! We would love to have you join us for a Sunday worship service at any of our locations.

"What makes New Life Church different from other churches?"

A few things are genuinely different.

 

Our messages come from the Bible.

You can follow along in your Bible and see that we are not making the message up. We believe the Bible is good news, not a to-do list. God’s message gives reason to hope and is not, first of all, a self-help book.

We think it’s okay to be a small church.

We want to continue to start new churches in which people can get to know other people. We are planning to continue to reproduce small healthy congregations.

We don’t get involved in politics.

While we believe the Bible expresses clearly what is right and wrong, political victory is not the concern of the church. Our message is “Our God reigns.” We don’t think that depends on who is elected or what bills are passed.

Our mission is God-centered.

We exist to engage people who are disconnected from God until they delight in Him through Jesus!

In a sentence, New Life Church is about God.

Our music and speakers won't be perfect. We make our share of mistakes. But more than anything, we want to point people to the hope they can have in Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

 

Our basic doctrinal statement represents those truths we hold to be the central and historic doctrines of the faith found in the Scriptures.

 

Word of God

We believe the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments is verbally inspired by God and without error in the original writings. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and sufficient revelation of God. God has supernaturally preserved His word through the ages so as to be entirely reliable (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-2; John 17:17; Romans 3:4; John 20:30-31; Matt. 24:35).


The Person of God

We believe God is knowable because He has revealed himself as He wishes to be known. We believe in one eternal, sovereign God, creator of all. God has one essence, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three persons of the Trinity share precisely the same eternal substance, yet function individually in administration and in relation to one another. We believe God is omniscient, that He knows all things, past, present, and future. (Rom. 1:18-20; John 1:18; 1 Cor. 2:16; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; Isa. 46:10).


God the Father

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.

A. W. Tozer

We believe in God the Father. He is spirit, infinite and perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Luke 10:21,22; John 4:24, Matt. 23:9; John 3:16; 6:27; Rom. 1:7; 1 Tim. 1:1,2; 2:5,6; 1 Pet. 1:3; Rev. 1:6).


Jesus Christ, the Son

We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life and atoned for our sins by shedding His blood on the cross. He was resurrected bodily and ascended to heaven where He lives as the advocate for believers. (Matt. 1:20-23; John 1:1,2; Rom. 3:24, 25; Rom. 8:34; Phil 2:5-10; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 1:1-3; Heb. 7:25).


The Holy Spirit

We believe in God the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. His ministry is to bring glory to God. He regenerates, sanctifies, comforts, indwells and empowers all who believe. He baptizes individuals into the body of Christ at the moment of their salvation and guarantees their perseverance. (John 14:16,17,26; 16:7-15; Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 3:16; 6:19; Gal. 5:22-26; Eph. 1:13-14). 


Human Life and Sin

We believe mankind was created in God's image and in fellowship with God, but due to sin the image of God was marred and fellowship with God was broken. The consequence of sin is physical, spiritual and eternal death which is separation from God. Everyone is, therefore, a sinner by nature and choice and is under condemnation. (Gen. 1:26; Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23; 6:23; Jer. 17:9; John 3:18; Eph. 2:1-3).


Salvation

The salvation of man is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God regenerates and imputes His righteousness to those who repent and forsake their sin and put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation. He thereby justifies them in His sight. They become new creatures and are delivered from condemnation and receive eternal life and a relationship with God. (Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7; John 3:16-17; Rom. 3:24-26; 2 Cor. 5:17; Rom. 8:1; 1 John 5:11-13; John 1:12).


The Church

We believe Christ's Church is a living spiritual body composed of regenerate persons of which Christ is head. Our local Church membership shall consist of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith, who worship and fellowship together, and observe the ordinances of baptism by immersion and the Lord's supper. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (1 Cor. 12:12; Eph. 1:22-23; Eph. 2:19-22; Phil. 1:1; Acts 2:42; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:19-20; 1 Cor. 11:23-26).

Last Things

We believe in the personal, visible, and imminent return of Jesus Christ. The just shall be raised bodily to everlasting joy in heaven, and the unjust to everlasting conscious punishment in hell. (1 Thess. 4:15-17; Acts 1:11; John 14:1-4; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15; 2 Tim. 4:1; Phil 3:20; Psalm 16:11; Matt. 16:27; 2 Thess. 1:7-10).
