Our Story

Our Story

In 1986, twenty-one year old Mark Jobe met with eighteen people of a small congregation on the Southwest side of Chicago. They dreamed of starting a church that could help people from all walks of life encounter God in a real way. With new vision and fresh energy, they reorganized and called themselves. “New Life Community Church”.

Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the infallible, authoritative Word of God.

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

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Pastors

Meet our team and find a New Life near you.

I have the great privilege of leading an incredibly gifted and committed team of pastoral couples. These couples serve as one team with one vision but distributed throughout many communities in Chicagoland. As you get to know these leaders you will be touched by their love, passion, vision and desire to make a difference.

They are truly an amazing team. For your convenience we have provided a brief bio and contact information for each pastor on this page.
