|What New Life Means to me...
- Being a member of any church was something I didn't feel the need to do. I knew about God
and was a good person so that worked for me. I started attending New Life and hearing
Pastor Carter preach about to put God first in my everyday living, (especially at work....that
was the hardest place for me to go, but I needed a paycheck), and how to work to become
the person God created me to be. One day, I noticed all the changes, for the better, that had
come into my life. I was listening and doing the work and God was working on my behalf.
I'm thankful for sending me to a place that is just what I need.
- It was about five years ago that I would pray and pray and pray to God about helping my
husband to stop drinking. I would even wonder why God wasn't listening to me. So two
years ago I started attending church again and within six months decided to give my life
to Christ. I decided to pray once again about asking God to take the drinking habit
away from my husband. God answered my prayers. I am so glad that I became a
member at New Life where I can understand what I'm being taught and then make those
things a part of my life so that my life can be pleasing to God. I'm so glad!
- Me and my kids love us some Pastor Carter and New Life Church. They embraced us and
quickly the feeling of not fitting in vanished. Thank you Pastor!
- Pastor/Teacher Carter lives and teaches New Life members practical holy living in a
way that makes sense to me. Not a lot of hooping and hollering, but more thought-
provoking teaching that I get.
- I may slip and fall down, but I am learning how to get back up and keep it moving...that's
practical for me!
- I had been sexually active for more years than I can remember. I used drugs and drank
heavily. I couldn't hold down a job so I stole and did sex to pay for my drugs. I had a
couple of abortions and on and on and on. I felt I had sank too low to be forgiven. I
remember the first time I set foot in New Life Christian Fellowship. A friend of mine
had been inviting me to come with her for months. I had used every excuse I could think
of. I just plain didn't want to go to church. What would be the use? When I got in the
building and sat down, I began to feel a strange feeling of peace. The Pastor talked
about Jesus dying as a sacrifice for sin. I didn't mean to, but I started to cry. The love
of God that I felt that first day has changed my life. I have no desire to go back to my
old ways. Every day, I celebrate New Life in Jesus Christ.
