New Life is a group of people striving to be an Authentic Christian Community by living REAL lives before God and one another. We do this in the context of our communities, Conover & Downtown Hickory. Because we believe our God is creative and diverse, our sites have their own uniqueness or flavor while holding unity in the heart and vision.
To create an authentic Christian community where Jesus Christ is first in all things and there is love for one another as God has loved us. We are committed to helping people discover God's love and His purpose for their lives in the context of loving Him and one another. We accomplish this in part with the things listed below...
We believe EVERY person has been created with a calling on their lives. Many times we use the word "ministry" to describe this calling. Whether that ministry is inside New Life, outside our walls, to our community, or even to the nations, we want to help you discover and accomplish whatever God is calling and has gifted you to do.
We are a family who gathers to welcome the presence of God and to live out the calling He has placed on our lives. There is something happening everyday at our church, but when you join us for a Sunday morning gathering, you can expect a strong and challenging message, powerful worship experience, and a whole lot of community.
Life Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. At New Life, we believe that Life Groups are absolutely vital to our spiritual lives. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one-another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.
