To grow at New Life Fellowship means that we cultivate a deep spiritual formation approach that allows God to transform our lives beneath the surface. Spiritual formation is the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the glory of God, the abundance of ourselves and the sake of others. Spiritual formation is about the integration of all life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. So whether we are praying, working, playing or eating, all of life is to be seen as worship. To that end, at New Life, we seek to equip men, women, children and families to a life that is continuously being shaped to reflect the character of Christ. Our Rule of Life gives expression to the kind of life we are invited to live at New Life.
For a description of this life, see our Community “Rule of Life.”
Throughout the year we offer training and teaching on spiritual formation related to spiritual disciplines, theological formation, marriage singleness, sexuality, a theology of work, etc. Our core spiritual formation courses that we offer are the Emotionally Healthy Relationships course in the Fall and the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality course in the Spring.
We strongly encourage New Lifers to take EHS. These courses are foundational to developing a deep beneath the surface relationship with God, yourself and others.
