The New Life Institute is a place where everyone is invited to explore God’s Word and experience God’s Will. 

Everyone is Invited:  The New Life Institute isn’t for people who love school; it’s for people who love Jesus.

Exploring God’s Word: The Bible doesn’t have to be unfamiliar.  You can know God’s Word, and through His Word, know Him. 

Experiencing God’s Will: We want to experience God’s will transform our lives, and through our lives, become agents of His will to transform the world in which we live.  

Prospective Students

Who is the New Life Institute for?

Have you ever read the bible and felt it didn’t make sense?

Have you wanted to learn more but never had the time or money to go to school?

Have you ever wanted to explore deeper topics about God, the Bible, and the Christian Life but because of financial, family, or work commitments you couldn’t?

Have you felt a sense that God has more for you but didn’t know what the next step was?

If so, we believe the New Life Institute is right for you. 

What we believe…

  • We believe the Bible doesn’t have to be unfamiliar.
  • We believe that the busyness of life doesn’t have to keep you from the life God has for you.
  • We believe that learning about the Bible isn’t only for those who love school, but for all of us who love Jesus. 
  • We believe that high quality biblical education should be available for everyone.
  • We believe that your previous education level doesn’t prevent you from experiencing the fullness of wonder God has for you.
  • We believe that God’s Will isn’t simply something we learn and explain but rather, it is something we can experience and live.


The goal is ministry training and certification rather than a focus on degree completion.  The New Life Institute is a non-accredited Institution so that we are free from any outside restrictions or requirements that would become a potential obstacle in providing specific tailored biblical training that is consistent with the vision and direction of New Life Community Church.

Online Element

The New Life Institute will be using the online platform Populi to help facilitate classes.  This will enhance the learning environment by allowing students to view the class lecture online, continue class discussions throughout the week, explore additional resources online, and much more.

Introduction to the Bible

This class will explore how the Bible came from God to us.  In this class students will be introduced to the topics such as the history of the Bible, how certain books were chosen to be in the Bible, the nature of the Bible, the different types of genres within the Bible, and much more.  Upon completion of this class students will be familiar with the Bible through understanding the history of the Bible, the nature of the Bible, and the different literary elements that make up the Bible.  This is a foundational class and is a pre-requisite for all of the Bible classes.    


In this study of the book of Romans, we will see how the whole epistle spells out God’s plan for establishing His Kingdom through the work of Jesus Christ. This overview of Romans will include a study of themes covering sin, salvation, sanctification, sovereignty, service, learning our place in the body of Christ, accepting and building one another up and learning how to be effective in ministry. Our study will not only help us understand this book better, but will also help us learn how to apply Paul’s teaching to the Holy Spirit’s working in our daily lives.

Spiritual Formation

This course helps students identify and put into practice key spiritual disciplines that will serve as a launching pad for their own spiritual growth and development.  In this class we will study centuries-old practices of the pursuit of knowing God in a more meaningful way. The course will provide instruction on the cultivation of our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Students in this course will engage in a brief exploration of the history, tradition and practical application of spiritual disciplines such as worship, prayer, Bible study, fasting, service, solitude and more.
