Our Vision

New Life exists to model the New Testament church in all of it’s actions and behavior. We seek to be multi-cultural, multi-generational, healthy, spirit-filled Christ followers here to serve the city of Monticello, the city of Dermott and Southeast Arkansas.

Serve God

At New Life we believe that our core purpose in life is to serve God. In everything we do we do it as unto the Lord. So whether it’s work or play we do it as an act of worship to God. This leads us to the great commandment of Jesus which is to serve God with all of our heart, soul and mind.

Love People

Jesus told the disciples they will know you are my disciples by the way you love one another. When Jesus gave the great commandment, he said and the second is like it. You must love your neighbor as you love yourself. This drives our vision of loving people at New Life.

Change the World

When we live a life of serving God and loving people the product of that is changing the world. When we are serving and loving we have a heart for lost people, we cannot stand for injustice and this leads us to action. Jesus called his church to be a movement that changes the world.


To be a New Testament church in belief and behavior.


37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment.  39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
-Matthew 22:37-40


18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
-Matthew 28:18-20
