New Creation is a church learning to follow Jesus. We are a small, mission-oriented community of Christians in the Presbyterian tradition, seeking to hear and respond to God’s call to follow the way of Jesus. We believe that membership in the church means discipleship: growing in the inward relationship with God and expressing that in our outward witness of service to our neighbors in the world. The ministry of the church in something that we share together as each person is called and gifted by God.
We believe that the ongoing growth and development of ourselves as members of the Body of Christ takes place best within a framework of worship, nurture, and witness.
As members of the Body of Christ, we seek to be transformed into the new creation God intends us to be as we grow in faithfulness to the way of Jesus. The more we venture out in faith, the more we do things that require faith, the more our faith will grow. Our life together is focused around our worship, study, fellowship and witness. As we do these things together, we seek to grow into a community through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to follow Jesus in word and deed and invite others to do the same, by loving God and our neighbors near and far, especially the least, the last and the left out.
