A bit of our Church History....

New Life Christian Center is a Foursquare Gospel Church.  It was founded in March of 1991 at which time it was called Victory Life Church.  Two years later, another community of believers merged with Victory Life and together they embraced their new identity as New Life Christian Center.   The church quickly became anchored in the community and is known for loving people from all walks of life and all age groups in a manner that will lead them to faith in Jesus Christ.  The community of New Life is purposed to love Jesus and to love people; to grow in their faith and fellowship; and to serve God and serve one another.          

Recently, the name of the church was changed from New Life Christian Center to New Life. Here at this church, there are many hearts changed and given new life in Christ Jesus!
