TO BE THE HEART AND HANDS OF CHRIST 

Welcome

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 Christmas season reminds us of another name for our Lord Jesus Christ. He has many names - lion, lamb, prophet, priest, king, Son of David, Son of Man, Son of God - yet another title is Israel. Jesus is the true Israel of God. Jacob was the first man named Israel and he produced a nation called Israel. Jesus is the second and better Israel and from him come nations of children who are the people of God. Christmas commemorates the entry point of God’s true Israel in the world.

Isaiah 49:1-3
The Lord called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name. 2 He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me a polished arrow; in his quiver he hid me away. 3 And he said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”
