New Life Bible Church
“Understanding Freedom in Christ”
Pastor Andy Anderson on Sunday began a new study on the letters of
Paul to the churches in Galatia. Speaking from Galatians 1:1-10, Andy
stated, “Paul was astonished that this group of churches was so
quickly turning away from the one gospel and turning to a different,
perverted gospel, which is really no gospel at all. They were telling
the church that there was more that they had to do to have more of the
love of God, than only accept the grace of Christ.”
“Some people believe that one must be a ‘good’ person, a ‘good’
Christian – this infers that you can be a ‘bad’ Christian. A
Christian, by the very definition, is a Christ-follower. Being a
‘good’ Christian is what Christianity is all about. Often we spend our
lives being told over and over that ‘because I’m a professing believer
in God and Jesus, I am going to be good all my life’. The ‘goodness’
should be a thankfulness and an appreciation to the Lord that He is
working in us, not because it’s our ‘work’, but because it’s a joy.
Our Christian life is not built on works, but it’s built on a ‘Who’,
and the ‘Who’ is Jesus.”
“Works will not get you into heaven” the pastor continued. “‘I did
this, I did that.’ Yes, you may have done this and that. But it’s not
a ‘you’ thing. It’s a God thing. It’s not works. Yes, we do work to
help others, but the works, the ‘doing’, is not what takes us to
heaven. What takes us to heaven is belief.”
“Some are trying to pervert the Word, the gospel of Christ. They were
in Galatia, and they are now. We have the bible, the Word of God, to
read and follow – we are blessed. The Holy Spirit, an active part of
the Trinity, wants to teach us and speak to us. There are some who
believe God does not speak to you, but have you ever had a teacher
teach you without speaking to you? We are a vessel that God will use,
and God speaks to this vessel. He tells us which way to walk, and if
we don’t believe that He talks to us, then how will we ever know?
That’s the problem with so many churches today – they say that you are
your own god, there is no Holy Spirit speaking to you, that there is
no hell. They ‘tickle’ peoples’ ears. If we are going to live in
Christ, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, let’s let Him change
us to be who He wants us to be, not who we want to be. That’s how we
will ‘know and be known’ – by our fruits.
Do we really regard the Holy Spirit as God, as an active teacher
residing in us wanting to guide us through our lives, or do we only
call on Him when we are in the depth of despair? Does Jesus say that
He is going to send the Holy Spirit only on occasion? No. He said that
He will be with us always.”
Pastor Andy concluded, “Don’t be the ones Paul is astonished at that
we leave the true gospel because someone has tickled our ears.”
What do you crave? Food? Social media? TV? Extreme organization? Do
these cravings take up more of your time and thoughts than your
attention to your relationship with Christ? The women of New Life
Bible are involved in a book study on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.
based on the book, “Made to Crave” by Lysa Terkeust, which will teach
how to turn your desires away from cravings and toward Christ. Women
throughout the community are invited to join this study led by Kim

9-13. The theme this year is “The Fruit of the Spirit,” and will

fun, and the children will get real bible teaching.
Adult Bible Fellowship
Geoff Haberman is leading a Sunday morning bible study each Sunday at
9:30 in room 204. This is an interactive bible study which helps all
those attending to increase their understanding of God’s Word. The
fellowship is currently studying the book of Deuteronomy.
High School Youth
Youth leaders James and Alison Lewis meet with the high school youth
in the outer building every Sunday morning at 9:30, for an
invigorating bible study. The high school also meets on Wednesday
evenings at the Lewis’ home, learning how to study their bibles. This
is very important to everyone to learn, so they can build a foundation
of knowledge about the Lord and their faith, growing their
relationship with the Lord.
Junior High Youth
The junior high youth meet on Sunday morning as well, and are
currently learning the foundational principles of the Old Testament,
relating that knowledge with the New Testament, and growing their
relationship with the Lord. Wednesday evenings the junior high youth
participates in the AWANA program.
New Life Family Prayer
Each Sunday morning those wishing to join in corporate prayer are
invited to come together in one of the front hall Sunday school rooms
from 9:00 to 9:30. This is an opportunity to lift our church and our
leadership up in prayer, as well as others who come to mind. Sunday
school for all ages, toddlers through adults, begins immediately after
the prayer time. A nursery is offered throughout Sunday morning, and
during the church service. Children’s Church is also offered for the
children toddler-aged through pre-school.
NLBC believes in preparing the young people for battle as they go out
into the world. AWANA encourages children and youth to learn God’s
word through memorization, reinforcing lessons, and fun games and
activities. The AWANA program is on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00
p.m., and includes children who turned three by September 1st, as well
as Junior High students. AWANA is on hiatus for the summer, but will
return when the school year resumes.

New Life Bible is involved in a ministry to the people of one of the
local nursing homes. The young people have “adopted” three of the
residents who might not have friends or family to check in on them,
and will be visiting them frequently. Please see the youth department
director, Kimberly Wilson, for details on helping with this ministry.
Praise and Worship
Steven Dulock and the praise team use their God-given talent to lead
the congregation in contemporary praise and worship every Sunday
morning before the church receives the Word of God. Everyone is
invited to experience this time of praise, lifting your voice to our
