New Life Church, led by Dr. Troy H. Jones, is based in Renton, WA and has multiple locations throughout the greater Seattle area.
Every weekend, we get together. You’ll find these gatherings warm and engaging, with energetic music, practical Bible teaching, and people full of authentic faith. Whether you’ve been a Christ follower for a while or you’re just “kicking the tires” of Christianity, you’ll discover what it means to be like Jesus.
Being like Jesus means spiritual transformation. It’s at the heart of Jesus’ last words to His followers: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” Because of this, we are unapologetic about calling people to follow Jesus Christ in a real, everyday, and practical way. We believe spiritual growth happens best in community not isolation.
Jesus made clear that our responsibility as His followers was to “go and make disciples of all nations.” This is why we so strongly believe that the church isn’t a building or a program. We believe that each of us is called to transform the culture. We do this through practical acts of service with community partners–at home, in our neighborhoods and communities–and around the world through what we call ACTS 13, a global outreach to a hurting world.
We started in 1926 as a Bible study in the home of two sisters concerned for the kids and families in their community. Since that day, we have been led by passionate and innovative leaders who have helped the church stay true to its Biblical calling while reaching an ever-changing culture.
Under the leadership of Dr. Troy H. Jones, who became the lead pastor in 2004, we have grown in weekly attendance, launched 3 new campuses, and built an online community. Today, more than 5,000 people worship weekly at one of 4 campuses, including 1,500 children and youth. Honoring New Life’s past while leading into its future, Pastor Troy is nationally recognized for helping established churches discover how to get back on mission and Recalibrate for the future.
Known since its earliest days for straightforward Bible teaching, New Life has found innovative ways to reach its neighbors, and being a safe place for people who are just checking Jesus out. New Life has always been—and will always be—passionate about following Jesus’ mission for the church: going into every corner of the world and making disciples.
