About New Light Christian Church
New Light Christian Church was born from the vision of Rick Danner for an intentionally multi-ethnic inner city church where, through strong Bible-based teaching, fellowship, healing, and restoration would provide a basis for meeting the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of each person and each family.
In October of 1992, with support from Overlake Christian Church, that vision became a reality as New Light began weekly worship and youth services in the Central District of Seattle, WA. meeting at Washington Middle School. From there we moved to The Union Gospel Outreach Center where we worshiped for the next 2 1/2 years until we were able to find our own building. New Light is now worshipping in their new sanctuary at 4620 S. Findlay St. - Seattle, WA 98118.
New Light Christian Church is a non-denominational, independent Church and has strong affiliations with many churches in the Seattle area
New Light Christian Church believes that the Bible is the Holy Inspired Word of God, without error. The Holy Bible teaches that by nature, man is a sinner from birth, and is spiritually separated from God. (Romans 3:23)
New Light Christian Church believes that the Holy Scriptures teach that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All possess the characteristics of Deity. God’s Son, Jesus Christ, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless and perfect life and died on a cross in payment for man’s sins. He was raised from the dead on the third day and He is coming back again. I Thessalonians 4)
New Light Christian Church believes that salvation is a free gift. (Ephesians 2:8,9)
It is given by God’s grace and received by faith. The Holy Bible teaches that water baptism by immersion is symbolic of the believer’s identification with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. Christ is the source of the believer’s salvation. (I Corinthians 15:1-5)
New Light Christian Church believes that the church is the "Bride of Christ" and the Body of Christ. The local church is governed by elders. (I Timothy 3)
The purpose of the church is to fulfill the last command to "…make disciples of all people." (Matthew 28)
New Light Christian Church believes that the Holy Spirit teaches that all Christians are given, by the Lord, spiritual gifts which enable them to serve in the local church. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
New Light Christian Church believes that as Christians, we should be concerned with the total person. Thus, New Light Christian Church is committed to addressing the social and physical needs of people as well as the spiritual.
