Beliefs & Practices
When the people of God gather in worship, God is active. The Holy Spirit communicates the manifest presence of God in the midst of corporate worship. Declaring the reign of Christ into the atmosphere changes the atmosphere. We believe that one of the ways the Holy Spirit expresses this reign is through the orderly exercise of spiritual gifts. At the heart of our corporate worship is praise and thanksgiving through songs to God for his amazing love for us, which we receive at salvation and everyday of our lives.
Prayer is one of the ways for Christians to know God intimately and personally. Moreover, it is in prayer that we participate with God in what He is doing on earth. We discern the heart of God and add our "yes" to His Word and work. Prayer is the engine of ministry at New Life Church.
We believe that the church is one big family, spanning the generations. Moreover, discipleship is a life-long journey of following Christ together, being formed as the people of God. New Life Church is committed to each generation and every stage of life, from exploring the Bible with children to finding community as a single to leading discussions about God's faithfulness with parents and grandparents.
We believe that every believer is invited into God's mission of redeeming and restoring His world. As a church, we believe we are called to announce in both word and deed the good news that Jesus is Lord, here and now! This happens through church planting, global missions, and local outreach.
We are committed to planting healthy local churches around Norway. As the Lord sends us leaders, our goal is to pay attention to God's work in their lives and to cooperate with it. We take seriously the call to raise them up and send them out for the sake of the world, not holding them back, so they can be a blessing to the world.
