Our History and Vision

In late 2004, God brought together a small group of people centered on a vision for a new kind of church in the St. Croix River Valley.

Our shared vision was for a non-denominational church, a place where people who didn’t feel comfortable in traditional churches would feel comfortable, where any person of any background would feel welcomed, accepted and treasured. And most important of all, a place where people could grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ together and live out their faith in the real world every day, not just for an hour on Sunday.

Ultimately, we exist in community to glorify God by the transforming work of Jesus Christ, the power of His Holy Spirit and the grace given to us freely by God Himself through prayer, worship and the study of His Word.

Our name, New Life Christian Community, closely linked to 2 Corinthians 5:17, is a constant reminder of the new life we have by being united with Christ. Furthermore, it speaks to our desire to be a community of believers that loves to serve God by serving others. In Jesus’ name we seek to love and serve the people in our community and all those to whom we have access.
