Greetings and Welcome to New Life Fellowship of Baltimore.
Who are we?
We are a people who stand in ASTONISHMENT of Who Jesus is and what he has done to all of humanity and creation as we hold to an uncompromising faith in the Eternal Love, Goodness, and Relational Power of God the Father, Son and Spirit; the God Who includes all people and things!
Our congregation embraces the Gospel, or “God’s Good News”! The “Good News” is REALLY the Person of Jesus Christ, Himself, the Son of God eternally with all of us as the Son of Man. God has revealed through Jesus that the first and foremost thing about God is that He is a Relational Being, One God, in Three Persons God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit! God the Trinity lives in Perfect Love, Fellowship and Oneness and, in His shared Love, adopts human beings into his Love and Life through Jesus and by the Spirit! Not only is every human being a child of the Father IN THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST, the Father also sent the Son to undo the sin/s of the whole world! Jesus, having conquered human sin and death in His Life, Death, Resurrection and Ascension, sends the Holy Spirit to be with us and draw us to Himself! The Holy Spirit encounters and educates us into the Truth of our Adoption and Inclusion into God’s Life and Love in Jesus so that we can begin living in the unearthly assurance and confidence we were designed to live in, becoming truly human! – Eph. 1:3-10, Rom 8:16-17, Acts 2:17, John 14:10-23, 15:26, 1 John 2:1-2
We believe in the unlimited atonement of Jesus Christ and the universal election of humanity for adoption and salvation.
While some are, undoubtedly, called and elect for specific functions in this life according to God’s purposes and God gives every person the freedom to ultimately trust and receive their salvation, none are excluded from the eternal life and salvation provided to all men through Christ’s redemptive work as the Last Adam. This does not mean that we can’t say no to God and reject him because we can, but it does mean that God has made a decision for us that will never change and we can only find ourselves fighting against it, insanely, and to our own harm, but we can’t make it not so!
Romans 5:18-19, John 3:16, 12:32, 1 Tim. 4:10, 1 Corin. 5:14-17
We are evangelical in terms of mission.
While we believe that all people are reconciled to God and included in the redemptive work of Christ, most people do not know it or trust it that they might BE RECONCILED! Therefore, it is the purpose of God, through his body, the church, to share the good news in all the world, teaching and baptizing disciples in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and instructing them to do the same. To “be saved” is to accept, receive, and experience the free gift of eternal life that is already provided for all people through the finished work of Christ.
Matt. 28:18-20, 2 Corin. 5:18-21, Acts 1:8
We are inclusive in our view of the church.
We understand that the Body of Christ is much greater than any individual denomination or fellowship, consisting of all who believe that Jesus is the Son of God and put their trust in Him. No corporate group of believers can legitimately claim to have a corner on all Biblical truth and understanding as it relates to our infinite Lord. Therefore, we humbly desire to promote unity within the Christian community and work cooperatively with other parts of the Body where possible in spreading the gospel and being a positive light in our community.
We are thankful to be a chartered congregation of Grace Communion, International

In a nutshell, that’s what we’re all about as New Life Fellowship! We’re all about sharing the Good News of the Relational God Revealed in Jesus and Participating in the Dance and Dream of the Father, Son and Spirit! Take a look around, embrace God’s Good News with us in the shared faith of Jesus, by the Spirit, and enjoy life with God no matter who you are or where you are! We are delighted that you have chosen to visit our website and we invite you to visit our worship services as well. We meet each Sunday morning at 10:25am at 3409 Lord Baltimore Drive, Windsor Mill, Maryland 21244. Visitors are always welcome with no obligations or pressures of any kind. Remember, you are the child the Father always wanted from before the foundations of the world! Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and, as the Creator and Sustainer of all people and things, it is in Him that we (YOU!) all live, and move, and have our being. We might as well live as if it is so by hos grace in the Spirit!
Yours In Christ,
