Welcome to NLF

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3 – 1

We are New Life Fellowship, a congregation of Grace Communion International. We are a diverse group of people from all over the Baltimore, Maryland area who embrace the Good News that, in Jesus, all of humanity is included in the life of the Triune God – Father, Son and Spirit! Ephesians 1: 3-6! We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Spirit, and that this God created, reconciled and embraced the world in Jesus Christ, as it was eternally purposed.

At New Life Fellowship we believe that everyone, including YOU, has been reconciled to God in Jesus Christ! This means you already have a relationship with God, in and through Jesus, and that God the Trinity Loves you, Likes you, and has fulfilled His plan for you to be His Adopted child forever. In fact, Triune God has revealed in Jesus Christ that He loves each of us, and all of us, MORE than He loves himself! Phil 2:3!

A Word To Inspire You From Our Lead Pastor

Timothy J. Brassell

“Ministry is going with Jesus – doing what he is doing, going where he is going; sharing obediently in his ministry, rather than disobeying by going where he is not going. Obedience and fellowship are one and the same thing………

As a paradigm for ministry, think of Jesus’ feeding of the 5000. Jesus knew how to involve his disciples in what he was doing. Who fed the 5000? It was an act of fellowship and communion – together, with Jesus, in the Spirit. Jesus’ great joy is to have his people involved in what he is doing: his great saving – reconciling work.
It’s not our ministry – it’s Christ’s ministry; the One who is raised and ascended is ministering through the Spirit; extending his saving presence to others.  Jesus continues to minister by his Spirit.
Sometimes we’re tempted to trust in our own loaves and fishes (programs; techniques, even our theology).  We’re looking for the secret – trying to make things “effective.”  We see our ministry alongside Christ – then we try to control it and compare it to others’ ministries. Putting our trust and faith in our methods; our faithfulness. This leads to burnout in ministry. Yes we should have our programs and techniques – but don’t put your hopes there. Just give it to him and let him use it. Focus on sharing in Christ’s continuing ministry.” – Dr. Gary Deddo: an overview of Trinitarian Theology
