We are a 21st Century New Testament Church. Our doors are open to everyone. We make every effort to be a reconciling and inclusive fellowship of Christian believers welcoming ALL of God's children. Our mission is to be an intentional spiritual community that is passionate in experiencing God and faithful in expressing God. We embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles.
It matters not your age, race, nationality, gender, orientation, socioeconomic position, education nor your faith/church experience. We welcome those who are seasoned in faith, new to the faith, in between or searching. If you have experienced rejection, disillusionment, confusion, pain, loss of family, loss of love, loss of faith, please know you are not alone and you are welcome here! If you are seeking a fresh new experience with Jesus Christ and want to be part of what He is doing in the church today, you've come to the right place. We are all striving for one thing: to see Jesus face to face one day and to be re-united with our loved ones who have gone on before us. In the meantime, we endeavor to be a church community of hope for all families.

This Week's Events
Special Events this week:
FREEDOM INDIANA RALLY, Thursday, December 5, 6PM. Come and find out what you can do to secure EQUALITY and FREEDOM for ALL Indiana residents.
Momentum to defeat HJR-6 is at an all-time high -- and what happens in your community might make all the difference. Several of our lawmakers still haven’t decided how they’ll vote on the anti-freedom amendment. And in the coming weeks and months, it’s up to us to make sure they stand with us on the right side of history.
That’s why we’ve organized a community meeting this Thursday in La Porte. Thursday's meeting is a perfect opportunity to hear crucial updates and learn how you can join your local effort to protect liberty for all Hoosiers. Refreshments by Holy Mcaroni Catering will be served. Everyone welcome!
You are cordially invited to join us each Sunday morning. Morning Manna Adult Bible Class begins at 10:00am CDT, taught by Pastor Dan Wright in the sanctuary. Sunday School for kids/youth/teens is during that same time slot. Our Celebration Worship Service begins at 11:00am. Don't miss the dynamic singing and worship that you will find at New Life ConnectPoint as well as the relevant ministry of our Founding Pastor, Bishop Randy Duncan. Communion is normally offered on 1st Sunday & Easter. Start your week with an uplifting and inspiring worship experience. You'll be glad you did! Everyone is welcome.
Knowing and understanding the Bible, God's written word, is very important at New Life. We have various teaching series throughout the year. Our studies include relevant in depth lessons from the Bible and how we can apply them to our lives today. Our new series "Crazy Love" began Wednesday, October 23, taught by our senior pastor, Bishop Randy Duncan. This series is a faith builder and creates and awareness of what our true commitment to Jesus Christ should really be. Taken from the book "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan, the results are already being felt and seen! The setting is casual. Bring your Bible or we will provide one. This adult level study welcome's everyone.
Thursday, SOS-Survivors of Shame, 6PM, bi-weekly:
A support group for those who have experienced abuse and other unwarranted treatment which caused shame, poor self-image, suicidal thoughts, unworthiness or despair. Facilitated by Michelle Harmon--a survivor of shame.
