NewSpring Church: No. 8 Fastest-Growing Church, 2016

Email this Print version

For years now, NewSpring Church has been known as a place where where life change takes place. Their aspiration? “Rather than being a building where people far from God are met with shame, guilt and condemnation, Jesus leads us to be a family that extends his grace, mercy and forgiveness to everyone.” The church sees Sunday services as an opportunity for people to come and enjoy time together—whether it’s their first time or they’ve been coming for years. “Being in community reminds us that we can’t do life alone.”

NewSpring is committed to the idea that growing people change. “Wherever we are in life, whatever is going on, we will always have a next step to take as we grow.” The church teaches that life is better when you live in community, and NewSpring groups are people taking next steps together. “The goal of our small groups is to help people grow in their walks with Jesus, around people who can support them in taking their next steps.”
