Our Church

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith

Jesus told his followers to make disciples throughout all the world–people who follow him and seek to become like him. Our spot in this world is Mineola, Texas, and we want to help as many people as possible in our city come to know Jesus in the power of his Spirit and to fulfill his purpose for their lives. As a member of the New Life Church, we have teamed up with more than 4,000 churches in North America and more than 40,000 churches around the world to fulfill this same goal elsewhere.

Our mission in Mineola is to help you believe the gospel of Christ, experience the power of Christ, and do the work of Christ.

Believe. Experience. Do. That sums up what our church is about and guides everything we do as a community of believers.

We would love for you to join us during one of our weekly services and consider joining us in this life together of believing, experiencing, and doing.

What We Believe

New Life Church is a Bible-based church. That means we seek to believe and practice what is explicitly taught in the Bible. Based on the Bible, we believe the following:

About the Bible
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is true in all that it teaches. As the flawless Word of God, it is our only authority for what we believe and how we live (2 Tim 3.15-17).

About God and Jesus Christ
There is only one God. The One God has revealed Himself to us as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that is, the One God manifested in and through authentic human life. To see Jesus is to see God. (Deut 6.4; John 14.9; Eph 4.4-6; Col 2.9; 1 Tim 3.16).

About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Rom 3.23-25; 6.23; Eph 2.8-9).

About the Gospel and Conversion
The gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We express our belief in the gospel through our obedience to the gospel. We obey the gospel and apply it to our lives by repenting of our sins (death to sin), being baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). This threefold experience is the consistent pattern of conversion in the early church (1 Cor 15.1-4; 2 Thes 1.8; 1 Pet 4.17; Mark 1.15; Acts 15.7; Rom 6.3-4; Acts 2.4, 37-39; 8.9-17; 10.1-48; 19.1-7).

About Christian Living
As Christians, we are to love God and love others. We are to worship God joyfully and seek to live a life that is pleasing to him both inwardly and outwardly—in our thoughts, words, and actions. We are empowered to live a life pleasing to God through the Holy Spirit. As a Pentecosal church, we believe that the supernatural gifts of the Spirit are for the church today and are available to all Spirit-filled believers (Mark 12.28-31; 1 Cor 12.8-10; 2 Cor 7.1; Rom 8.13-14; Gal 5.19-26; Heb 12.14).

About the Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away his church. In the end, will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (1 Thes 4.16-17; Rev 20.11-15).
