OUR PURPOSE AT NEW LIBERTY
The community we serve is in need of a fruit-bearing, relationship with Christ. We are looking to be the bridge that connects the streets to the church. Our leaders are committed to developing members of the church and equipping them for evangelism outside of the church. This generation and community has a lot of questions and we are here to answer them.
It is by our fruit that people will know we follow Jesus. Join the movement as we continue to build God’s Kingdom! Remember, we are all called to bear good fruit.
