New Creation Ministry
“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”
– 1 Peter 2:2 KJV
The New Creation Ministry is dedicated to assisting new believers of our church to become acclimated to their new life in Christ Jesus. We begin by presenting an overview of who we are and what we believe. During this orientation process new believers will be expected to participate in an orientation class where they can share information about themselves and asked questions pertaining to their expectation of the church in general. This is also a time for everyone to get to know each other and feel comfortable about the decision they have made. This class has been structured to help a new member through an eight-week orientation. An orientation booklet has been prepared and the facilitators will go through the booklet with the class outlining each section. We welcome new believers into the family and we want them to know that they are never alone. As they grow in Christ we are here to extend a hand of love to help them on their new journey with the Lord.
