New Life Temple Church serves in the global community to encourage children of God to discover, develop, and walk in the purpose for which they have been destined in the Kingdom of God. As a church, we have learned that we are called to be exceptionally outstanding in the purpose we were created for. We have identified this as "greatness". As such, we recognized that the virtuous expression of greatness is in our conformation into the image of the Son of God. We know that as we meet and disciple people, until we encourage them to make Jesus their primary purpose for living, they will never understand how to live a successful Kingdom life. This has become our greatest joy; helping others learn the virtue and priority of being like Jesus whose greatest desire was fulfilling the Will of God in the earth. This must be our same desire. As the Will of God becomes what we live to do, our devotion to God and His Kingdom will be ultimately expressed as we walk in the greatness for which we were created!
Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell them about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For nearly fifty years now it has been our mission to "restore people to a quality relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ." That means that no matter where you've come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.
One of our greatest assets is NLT's Care Group Network (CGN). CGN is a pastoral care concept in which pastors in collaboration with a group are responsible for the spiritual and social welfare of those in his/her network. We believe that we are to demonstrate Christ's love through an interactive Christian environment. CGN is an expression of community and fellowship that becomes the means by which we show the love of Christ to our members while meeting other personal needs. Our pastors are assisted by leaders assigned to the various groups who help implement the needs of the group in coordination with the affections of the church. We highly encourage everyone who calls NLT Church their home to be involved in a care group located near their local neighborhood.
Our Sunday morning services are not about the songs we sing, but more about the presence of God, which is the essential reason for our gathering. Worship becomes our greatest form of expression and not just on Sundays, but everyday of the week. As we come together on Sunday, it is to encourage and engage with the each other while we purposefully express our love and devotion to our heavenly Father and HIs Son. Sunday Morning Worship is also a time to hear the word of God explained in such a way that the saints are motivated to leave the sanctuary and live a life as the divine expression of God in the world.
NLT Church understands and values teaching and sharing the love of God to our youth. We delight in watching our kids grow in the spirit and the natural. We have several levels of youth ministry that involve the very small to the very tall. Check out the links below to get more info about our programs.
We believe that financial giving is the way God has called us to honor Him.
Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase Proverbs 3:9
NLT supports missions, ministries, and orphanages in various parts of the world. We currently provide support in India and parts of Africa. Dr. Godfrey travels the globe ministering a word of reconciliation to the lost and broken. He has established several christian education facilities that promote the growth of pastors, leaders, and saints.
We believe that you're not only honoring God when you give but you also show that you trust us with what you give. We do our best to be a good steward with our finances as we expand the Kingdom of God in the earth. Some churches tend to be shy in asking for donations to keep ministry going but we encourage giving in order that you are blessed, the ministry thrives, and God's Kingdom advances forward.
