TO BE THE HEART AND HANDS OF CHRIST
New Life seeks to be the heart and hands of Christ in our community. As our name implies, we are living testimonies that Jesus changes people, "just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life" (Rom 6:4).

The Story of Joseph - The Servant Who Saves
The story of Joseph is the prophetic revelation of God’s providential intentions for the world. Of course on the face of it, Joseph is the youngest and favored son of Jacob. He is envied and despised by his eleven brothers. Consequently, his life was one of suffering in service to God and men. But for Christians, wisdom beams through Joseph’s story as we perceive a model which mollifies the malevolence of our idolatrous culture. For Joseph is a model of a servant who saves, and Christ is the Mediator, the true Servant who Saves. For Christ saving us through his suffering, through his service, has always been God’s providential intention for this world.
