New Light FCC Purpose

We Exist to Worship Jesus Christ (John 4:21-24; Revelation 5:11-12).  
William Temple, the former Archbishop of Canterbury said that worship is:The submission of our nature of God
The nourishing of our mind with God’s truth
The purifying of our imagination by God’s beauty
The surrender of our will to God’s purpose
All gathered up in Adoration
The church exists to worship the True and Living God who has revealed the Godself through Jesus Christ.  Worship is not cheap entertainment.  Worship is declaring the ultimate worth of God.  Worship is our adoring response to God'’ mercies.  True worship involves the mind, emotions and volition of the worshiper.

We exist to Save the Lost through Jesus Christ (Luke 15:1-24 and Luke 19:1-9)
The church exists to save the lost through Jesus Christ.  Read Luke 15 and see the high priority Jesus had for the lost People. To be lost means not to have Jesus as Lord of your life. Humans are lost, not God. God is the seeker, and humans are the sought. God uses the church to introduce the Savior to the lost.


We exist to develop the saved (Matthew 28:19-20)
The church exists to develop the saved.  In Deuteronomy 6:4-10 and Matthew 28:19-20, the church is commissioned to teach.  The church exists to mature and nurture its members. We as Christians are in the process of becoming. Sunday School is the primary teaching arm of the church. Sunday School is a lay movement.


We exist to provide fellowship (Matthew 25:31-46, Romans 15:1, Galatians 6:1-2, Hebrews 10:24-25)
The church exists to provide fellowship.  Read Galatians 6:1-2 to get a clear picture of what fellowship entails. Fellowship is sharing the hurts and pains of others. We will be judged based on how we respond to the least among us. We must come in contact with other church members is one of the places you can use for adding FAQ answers on your website.
