About

We are a small community of about 80 people. On any given Sunday you may find that we have 20 people or 120 people at our service. It depends on the month, the weather, and/or the occasion. We have children ranging from young babies to high school students. Most of the adults are married and range in age from early 20s to mid 80s. Most of our community is in the 30-60 year old range. While many of us identify ourselves as Lutherans, many also come from other faith communities, some consider themselves agnostic, and some are still discovering (or undecided).

We welcome all, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual preference, political leanings, hair color, which football or baseball team you prefer. We don’t even care which NASCAR driver you root for. In fact you might even prefer F1, or Indy cars over NASCAR and we don’t really mind.

Our Beliefs

New Creation uses a variety of statements reflecting the church season and/or the current worship theme. For detailed background, see our Beliefs page. Here is just one of our Statements of Faith:

We believe in God, the one who comes before us and goes behind us, creating life and opportunities to love and care for the world. We believe in Jesus Christ who walks with us into real life each day. He is God, yet human like us and experienced all life’s joys and pains and challenges like we do. But his love is so great that not sin nor suffering nor even death could stop it. Today the love of Jesus lives and continues to bring new life to the world. We believe in the Holy Spirit who comes like the wind and blows in and through us to bring God’s power and light to all the world. The Spirit breathes life into us, the body of Christ we call the church, and enables us to follow the way of Christ. We believe in God, who goes before and behind, with, in, and through us, bringing hope and life and newness to the world.

Amen
