OUR PASTOR'S WELCOME
On behalf of the congregation of Renewed Life Church welcome to our website. We are a family of Spirit-indwelt servants of God sent to make disciples who make disciples of God's Son Jesus. We are an evangelical church that is committed to the glory of God above all things. We have a high view of God, the gospel, the Scriptures, and the church. As a church family we strive to glorify God through singing and praying together, reading and preaching His word, partaking of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and loving one another. Far from being a perfect church (we are sinners saved by grace), we are striving to grow together in the grace and knowledge of Christ and into greater Christlikeness.
We believe that truth and love are not only compatible but essential for a healthy church. Therefore we are committed to the truth of God’s Word and to loving each other as we seek to understand and obey God’s truth together. Thus we are very much a God-centered, Bible-driven, people-loving church. It is a great blessing to serve the Lord together with other brothers and sisters in Christ from various ages, backgrounds, and occupations. Our unity is in the gospel which not only gives us peace with God but also with each other.
We love to meet new people and welcome all visitors. Please feel free to worship with us and allow us to meet you. But most importantly we pray that you will find a church home where you will faithfully serve the Lord and His people.
In His Service,
Joshua Sims (Pastor Josh)
