I’m Really Proud!

August 9, 2010

Vince Antonnuci returned to our Westfield campus Sunday like a grown son who’s been serving on the mission field for 12 years. After spending time with extended New Life family at Restore Church’s service, Laura and I drove to Westfield HS and snuck into the back at second service. Listening to Vince speak made me […]

Why does New Life practice baptism by immersion?

July 14, 2010

If someone wants to start a new, right relationship with God, the Bible teaches that is only possible because of one thing: Grace.  People are saved because Jesus makes forgiveness possible by dying on the cross to pay the price for our sins. Then, by His grace, Jesus gave us steps to respond to grace—not […]

How can you tell if a church is dying? I think James Emery White is clued in. Read this: http://www.churchandculture.org/Blog.asp?ID=122. What do you think? Brett Andrews,  Lead Guy

A Great Result!

June 15, 2010

1 Corinthians 12:9, [The Lord] said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you…” List the things you can be absolutely certain of.  Short list, isn’t it?  We can’t trust the economy or the government. Best friends and closest family can let us down. Our next breath isn’t assured. Isn’t that why peace eludes most […]

Way Beyond: This Time is Different

June 1, 2010

You may have been wondering how things are going with Way Beyond. For the last three weeks, I have been talking with individuals and groups about our Way Beyond campaign to purchase and build out the new building.  (If you have questions, we hope our FAQs help.) Several people have asked, “So, how’s it going?”  […]

Buddo’s Prayers

April 22, 2010

Hearing my grandmother pray was as normal for me growing up as watching Cal Ripken play shortstop.  Most often, her prayer was more of an exclamation acknowledging God’s goodness, “Thank You, Lord.”  Or, “Oh, thank You, Lord.”  She was thankful in good times, and in painful times—such as, when I was around. But, it was […]

The Key

April 19, 2010

What is the key to happiness? Wealth? Career success? More & Better stuff? According to this recent column from the New York Times, the answer is … relationships. The paragraph that jumped out to me is the 6th from the end. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/opinion/30brooks.html?pagewanted=print What do you think? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments below. Brett […]

Trouble Understanding the Bible?

December 23, 2009

I love God’s Word.  It is amazing that the Eternal, Almighty, All-knowing God chooses to communicate His thoughts to us!  Yet, how many times has each of us read the Bible and felt, “I know I should be getting more out of this… but I’m NOT”? A couple weeks ago, I had breakfast with a […]

Update on Building Negotiations

November 12, 2009

Today, we meet directly with the Bud Building realtor to iron out final details of the deal. As Creed said yesterday, their lawyers keep adding & deleting items in the contract; then, our lawyers add and delete items in the contract (because they’re looking out for their clients best interests). So, the primary negotiators are […]

You matter to your coach!

November 11, 2009

Last night our AAA Nationals played our final game. I’m at work this morning wishing this team could stay together. We won a bunch; we lost a few; but that’s not why I am saddened the season is over. Our kids and parents were the best! Win or lose, our parents were enthusiastic, positive, & […]
