In his parting words in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus commissioned us to make disciples, baptizing his new followers and teaching them to obey his teachings. Therefore, we encourage every believer to be baptized during a corporate worship service. This sacramental act emphasizes God’s grace and reminds us that the church is a family. It is a holy opportunity to identify with Jesus’ death and resurrection and to publicly confess “Jesus is Lord” before others.
At New Life Downtown, we typically water baptize people the Sunday after Easter and another Sunday in October during the 11am service. A baptism class is held at 9:30 am to instruct and prepare each participant.

New Life Next
If you are new or newer to New Life Downtown, we invite you to join us for New Life Next. This relational and informational gathering typically happens on the third Sunday of each month from 12:45-1:45 pm at the Commons (332 N. Tejon). It begins with a fantastic lunch. Then there is a 25-minute presentation about our church and how you can connect with our various ministries and teams. We conclude with a time of questions and answers, prayer, and gifts. Kids are welcome to attend! We’ll even have a activity bag to thank them for coming.
Upcoming Dates: Oct 20 and Nov 17
Gather with the New Life family for extended and focused times of worship, prophetic ministry, and prayer, at 6:30pm on the First Wednesday of the month. These meetings are specifically designed so that we can spend some unhurried time with the Holy Spirit.
When: Nov 6, Dec 4 from 6:30-8:00pm
Where: The Living Room at New Life North
