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 Vision

Our Vision

We want to be a family of love who cooperates with God in making fully devoted, fruitful followers of Christ. Our mission is to reach and teach 30,000 people throughout Chicago-land through life-giving communities of faith that serve as transformation centers to the neighborhoods where they are located. Our goal is to be all over the city for the good of the city.

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.
