To Know Him and Make Him Known

filligree

New Life’s purpose statement reflects the two movements of Christian Discipleship:  the movement toward Christ and the movement toward a broken world that needs his healing.  The first six weeks weeks will focus on encounters Jesus has with individuals in the gospels.  Through these exchanges, they – and we – learn to know who Jesus is and begin to build, or continue to build a personal relationship with him.  In each of these passages, we see Jesus as the initiator, and are reminded that probably being known by him is more important than our pursuit of him.

In the second six weeks, we explore how Christ pushes us out into a world that doesn’t know him.  Some don’t even know his name.  Others know something about him, but have no personal relationship with him.  They need the message of power, healing, hope, and salvation that he brings.  They also need the community that he is forming to experience the benefits of the transformed world yet to come.

Living for the King

filligree

​L​iving for the King is New Life’s foundational discipleship course built on the truths of God’s grace i​n Jesus Christ. As we learn more deeply what it means to be justified by faith and adopted as a child of God, we develop a new identity. Our self-image begins to be defined by God’s view of us, rather than the opinions of others or by our own success or failure.

LFK applies the message of grace to all of our relationships and to every area of daily life. As we understand what Christ has done for us more deeply, his character takes root in our lives. We begin to understand our gifts and calling in light of God’s kingdom purposes. Our responses to challenges and even our own failures changes so that we are no longer crushed by guilt, anxiety and depression. In the end, it helps every individual develop a personal plan for Christian growth and service.

Living for the King is modeled after the “Sonship” material, first written by Jack Miller and now available through Serge.  Much of the course is based on Paul’s writings in the book of Galatians.  Homework and readings provide tools that God uses to change our way of thinking about faith and life.

Living for the King is held annually beginning in January and finishing in April.  Please look for details in the late fall for the next class. If you have questions, please contact Jacob Lee, our associate pastor.
