God initiated His plans for our church in early 2008 by stirring the hearts of the Evangelical Community Church pastoral leadership as well as a small group of faithful members.
Their desires to start a new church for God’s glory were realized in May of 2009 when the New Life Church was planted.
In January of 2012, the Constitution was ratified, and in May of 2012 Matthew Levant was called to serve as the first pastor. Gareth Franks was called in 2017 and became the second pastor to serve New Life Church, Abu Dhabi.
The New Life Church focuses on reaching the growing number of people that have moved into the outlying communities off of the primary Abu Dhabi Island. God’s good hand of blessing has been upon this church from the very beginning.
In the Great Commission, Jesus gives His permission and promise to work through us, and He intends that we obey. He also intends that we teach these disciples to observe all that Jesus has taught us, which means the establishment of new congregations. In obedience to our Lord, together with the help of ECC, New Life Church planted Grace Church Abu Dhabi in 2015.
New Life Church is a member of 'The Council of Evangelical Churches' in the United Arab Emirates. As a faith family, we will continue to support the mission of the church as we witness God unfolding His continued plans for us.
