Our Church

Congregation Clapping at Church

The New Life Christian Center Church was formed in 2010 with our first service held in September 2011. Since that time, we have been changing lives with the word of God, evangelizing to our communities, and teaching people how to have faith in God so they learn how to please God in their daily lives. We strive to show the compassion and love of Jesus Christ to those who are in need or hurting in any way.

We are a community-centered church serving the Pensacola, Florida area. As a Soul Winning Church, we are relentless in our pursuit of winning souls to Jesus Christ so that everyone will get the chance to know Him for who He is.

Our passion and mission are to win souls and teach people faith so that they learn to please God. Not only are we here for worship services, but we are also here to provide family outreach, education, and career resources to revitalize, strengthen, and EMPOWER the community. We especially give honor and seek to serve those who serve our country!

Our Mission

Equipping the Body of Christ to evangelize to the world

We are building a family of people who can serve God with fervor and diligence. We aim to create a community where love is shared and the Word of God is given importance. Through this, we believe that we can make our world a better place for everyone – most especially those who were hurt, discriminated against, grieving, lost, and brokenhearted.

Our Vision

Changing the lives of people with the Word of God

We envision a multicultural, multigenerational church where people from all ages, cultures, and classes can attend and feel comfortable in their worship experience. Whether you are just beginning your walk with God, or you’re a committed believer continuing your journey with Him, you will find a place here at the New Life Christian Center Church.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible Written Word of God.

We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent, and three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the church of God, which is in Christ and His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing in prayer.

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for Him.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in this present world.

Our Core Values

We remain persistent in embodying:




So everyone within the community may emulate these traits and become the best versions of themselves possible.
