Our hope is that you would know how much God loves you and would hear Him speak to your heart. We know that God has a great plan for your life and we would love to help you in any way. Below you will find some information to assist you as you visit our church. If you have any questions please call the church office at 805-983-1890 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you arrive for a worship service, you’ll find friendly people who aim to make your first visit an encouraging one. Our parking attendants will direct you, and our greeters provide you with a bulletin, and will guide you or answer any questions that you have. If you have children from birth through 5th grade, you may check them in at our secure Children’s Ministry area, located at the counter as you walk in through the main entrance.
We encourage early arrival as services begin on time, and last approximately 1.5 hours. Our times of worship begin with music (mostly contemporary songs, with occasional hymns and new arrangements); then we open God's Word together for a relevant, biblical message. Sermons are captured on audio and video and can be found on the teaching page, or purchased at our bookstore. In-between the services we offer coffee and donuts on our deck area.
As you enter the sanctuary, our ushers will welcome you and be glad to direct you to your seat. We seek to lead people further into a life-altering relationship with the living God—and our worship services reflect that. The authority of God's Word is preached with passion and we worship Jesus with gratitude and adoration.
We have have wonderful Children’s Ministry called New Life Kids for ages birth – 5th grade. Your children will learn about God and how much he loves them and be cared for by loving, carefully screened and trained volunteers. Please click here for more information.
What to wear? The Lord focuses on the heart more than on the outward appearance, and so do we. You'll find a wide variety in dress among our attendees —from casual jeans and shorts, to suits and ties. We simply aim to dress as to not draw attention to ourselves, but keep the focus on Jesus Christ alone.
We look forward to meeting you!!!
New Life Community Church was founded in 1997 by Pastors Steve and Tami Abraham along with a group of about 50 people in a hotel in Oxnard. It is amazing what God has done, today almost 3,000 people call New Life their home church.
Since the beginning of New Life Community Church we have strived to become the kind of church described in the Bible - a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, loving friendships and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we'd like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the community, one life at a time.
New Life Community Church is a part of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. The Foursquare Church is a denomination that exists to glorify God and advance His kingdom. Please visit Foursquare.org for more information.

As founding pastors of New Life Community Church, Steve and Tami are known for their passion to reach people who are far from God. In 1997, along with a group of about 50 people, Steve and Tami planted New Life Community Church which has grown to almost 3,000 people, currently meeting in three Sunday morning services. Since our launch, we've seen hundreds of people give their lives to Christ and be water baptized.
Steve and Tami’s ministry has been characterized by a firm commitment to communicate the Bible in a creative and relevant manner. In addition to pastoring New Life for the last 18 years, Steve and Tami served as youth pastors for 7 years in Ventura and for 8 years as Divisional Leaders in the Foursquare denomination. They attended LIFE Bible College (now known as LIFE Pacific College) where they both received a B.A. in Theology. Steve and Tami live in Oxnard and have two daughters, Riley and Brenna, and son, Ryan.
