Who We Are
New Life Temple was established in February 1972 by Pastor Ralph Godfrey Sr. It has been a place where people have come to worship a true and living God. Since its inception this church has formed several substantial scripture based training programs as well as a bible college and leadership institute founded with an objective to equip saints for the work of the Kingdom. Never forgetting its purpose, New Life Temple is diligent to do its part in promoting and establishing the Kingdom of God in the earth.
As of September 2011, Ralph Godfrey Jr. is now the Senior Pastor of New Life Temple Church and it is his goal to continue moving forward in the work already established.
New Life Temple Church is an experience that you will never forget! Our desire is to have a true encounter with GOD everytime we come together.
We believe that we are called to shine forth in these dark times (thus the images of lighthouses). Our lives should be a beacon of hope to all who are lost in this wayward journey. Our goal is to lead men to the way of truth in Christ by expressing the love of God to all, preaching a sound gospel message, making disciples and living a succesful Kingdom lifestyle.
What sort of Church is New Life Temple?
New Life Temple considers itself a New Testament Church. This is a Church that believes and operates under the biblical guidelines outlined according to the Bible. We also believe that we are a Church that has been blessed with apostolic graces.
What exactly are Apostolic graces?
New Life Temple has been graced to have a five-fold ministry team. We believe that this team from time to time will be sent out to do effective ministry for other churches within the Body of Christ.
In the New Testament there are two words that mean ‘sent out”. The first word in Greek is pèmpo which is the word used for sending. However when we speak of the term "apostello", it is used to denote sending of persons with a commission and in some cases to denote a divine sending and authorization. Usually the term “commission involves the authority given to perform a task.
With that said, we believe that New Life Temple has been given the grace to go forward with authority to impart, bless, equip and even encourage a diverse segment of the Body of Christ.
