New Community began in August of 1991 with about 20 people and in 2016 has close to 1,000 people in the congregation. We embrace all Bible-based, Christ-centered church traditions and do not require a certain unique doctrinal statement or church ritual/practice to be a member of the church. Membership is defined by faith in Jesus Christ, devotion to the Bible and participation in the congregation. We are independent, non-denominational congregation is rooted in Reformation teachings with the Heidelberg Catechism and Belgic Confession as our source of doctrine.
