We are real people who have discovered the hope that God offers,
regardless of our circumstances.
We are a friendly, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled church with a message of good news and hope.
The mission of New Life is connecting people to their Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, and to one another. We’ve learned that our spiritual growth is not something that just happens, it is intentional. We would love to have you join us on this life pursuit of following Jesus together.
No matter where you are in life all are welcome here!
At New Life we are committed to helping you get to know God better and to grow spiritually. You will find relevant messages, great music and friendly people who genuinely care about each other, all in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. New Life is a multigenerational church family made up of people just like you, from all different types of backgrounds and experiences. God has designed us to be His family and to value every individual as we live in relationship with Him and each other.
In January 1992, a small group of spiritually hungry people began meeting to pray and seek God for “more of Him”, asking that He would impact this community with His Kingdom in powerful ways. We did not set out to start a church, but out of this extended season of weekly prayer, God called us to do that very thing. With this clear mandate, and a Spirit-fueled passion for the spiritually lost and those searching for more of God, New Life Christian Fellowship was born.
At first we met in a local school, setting up and tearing down each week. Conditions weren't perfect, but God taught us important lessons on perseverance and faithfulness. Next He provided a building where we learned to make the most of each square foot of floor space! In 2004 we purchased our current building with a great location and plenty of room for expansion.
New Life celebrated its 27th anniversary in January 2019. We continue to grow and are excited for all God has planned! We have come a long way since the early days, but our mission is still the same, helping the people of Northeastern Michigan to know Jesus, receive His forgiveness and freedom, to grow in faith, and make a difference in our community and the world for Jesus Christ.
