|New Life Bible Church|
It started years ago as simple bible classes in my home and has grown to be more than I had hoped or dreamed. I am so very blessed to be the leader of this family friendly, never alone church.
The New Life Bible congregation is made up of families of all ages who share together in a unique blend of Christian Service. "Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ's law. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith." Galatians 6:2,10 (The Message)
New Life Bible Church is a very caring congregation that strongly believes in reaching out beyond themselves to spread and apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here you will find a warm welcome and ample opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus and His Church.
I am very pleased to be able to pastor such a great group of Christian families, and we welcome you to join us at New Life Bible Church 1420 Hoke Loop Road in Fayetteville, NC.
