Our mission is to call people to repentance, teaching believers what it means to be a New Creation in Christ and how to live out of their new identity in Jesus.
“Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah (Jesus Christ), he is a new creation- the old has passed; look what has come fresh and new!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (CJB)
We see ourselves coming alongside the local church to bring the Gospel to unbelievers and to help believers mature in their spiritual walk with Christ through discipleship, equipping them for the work of the ministry with a thorough understanding of Christ in them, the hope of glory.
This vision is driven by the hope of seeing what is written:
“…so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 3:10 (ESV)
We do this by following the example Jesus gave us, by going to whomever God calls us to and walking alongside them through:
- Discipleship/Pastoral Discipleship/Evangelism/Mission
- Home Bible Study
- Supporting School Activities with Teens
- “A New Creation” Conferences
“God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (Message Bible)
We encourage believers to be active in the Body of Christ and to allow Christ to express His life through them wherever God has called them, whether in their local church (communities) or in other parts of the world (Missionaries).
We are willing to go wherever God sends us! We are committed to the call that God has placed on our hearts, persevering until God calls us home in death or Jesus returns to take us home with Him in His Second Coming. Until then, we will faithfully encourage believers to be active in the body of Christ and to allow Christ to express His life through them wherever God has called them, whether in their local church communities or in other parts of the world as missionaries.
Our greatest hearts’ desire at New Creation517 is to present everyone complete in Christ Jesus.
“We, for our part, proclaim him; we warn, confront and teach everyone in all wisdom; so that we may present everyone as having reached the goal, united with the Messiah. It is for this that I toil, striving with all the energy that he stirs up in me so mightily.” Colossians 1:28-29 (CJB)
