Welcome

We call our church “New Life” because we believe anyone can find new life in Christ, no matter your background or problems. God’s grace is so great! Jesus can restore you. God can change anyone. We are broken people who have come to believe the Gospel. God's good news tells us: Cheer up! You're worse than you think, but God loves you more than you can imagine and can change you more than you dare to dream. There is forgiveness and hope for you in Jesus!


I invite you to join us on the journey of faith, as we follow Jesus in Philadelphia. We are a people of grace, renewed to serve our community and our world. We are an urban church of “Many Colors One Blood”. We are a "come as you are" kind of church. No need to dress up or clean up. Just show up, and see what God can do! You will find a place in God's family with us.


Warmly in Christ, Pastor John

  • What to Expect

    What is the service like?


    A typical service at New Life lasts about an hour and a half. The praise and worship is contemporary in style and the messages are grace-centered and life-changing. Please make yourself at home and participate as you feel comfortable.


    How should I dress?


    New Life Church doesn’t have a dress code, so you’ll see all styles of dress at New Life, which means you should feel comfortable regardless of your attire. Come dressed as you like in a suit or in jeans.


    What do I do with my children?


    At New Life, we have an amazing team of children's workers ready to minister to your kids from birth to 5th grade. 


    A Nursery is available for children under 3 from 9:30 - 12:45 in the Ministry Center. 

    Classes for children 3 years old through 5th grade are available from 9:30 - 10: 30 and 11:30 - 12:45. Come to the Children's Check-In station in the front lobby of the Ministry Center when you arrive. 


    Our children’s and nursery classes have been developed with your child’s security — and your peace of mind — at the forefront, which is why we do background checks on every person ministering or teaching in our children's departments. Your children will be cared for and taught by loving, trained volunteers in a secure environment. 


    Please check out the Teens page for ways students in 6th - 12th grade can be involved at New Life.
