Be refreshed and renewed

New Life at Ghent strives to be a safe place where people from all areas of life can be refreshed and renewed. We are a campus of 300+ with a strong commitment to being a missional community. We meet together not only on Sundays, but also Monday through Saturday experiences of Life Groups. Our Life Groups are combinations of individuals fostering supportive friendships through home meetings and service opportunities that display the love of God to people in our city.

Join us on Sunday mornings for an eclectic time of worship, powerful and inspiring teaching, an amazing time of community, and a free cup of coffee from our New Life Ghent Cafe.

The best is yet to come!

Welcome to New Life Church! We are a family who all can testify to the power of a life changed by the One who transformed us. We are a multi-ethnic, multi-generational group who have been transformed by one word: Grace. Welcome to our family.

All of the ministries at New Life Church are strategically designed for the purpose of moving you and your family into a more healthy, maturing, passionately-driven, hope-filled walk with Jesus. We are here to serve you as we reach out together to serve our community.

What to Expect


Free parking is available on site. Things can get a backed up closer to service time so it’s a good idea to arrive 15 – 20 minutes early.


You’re invited to come as you are, whether it’s a suit or shorts. Our members and attendees tend to dress business casual.


Programs are available for ages 1-12 for the duration of each service. Meet with a leader at the campus child check-in center prior to service.

I love serving God at New Life. It’s a joy to put a smile on someone’s face as they walk into the building and help see things run smoothly for the leadership.
