Senior Minister

Jesus of Nazareth – aka Jesus the Christ

New Life is God’s Church (Acts 20:28). Jesus is the Good Shepherd (Jn10:11) whose death makes it possible to reconcile all things to God (Jn3:16; Rom8:20-22). The Holy Spirit empowers us for ministry (1Pet4:10).

Yet why do we claim Jesus as our “Senior Minister”? Peter says, “And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory” (1Pet5:4). The word translated as “Chief Shepherd” can just as easily be translated as “Senior Minister”.

Many times the Senior Minister is seen as “the guy” who is in charge of a congregation. We desire that person to be none other than Jesus. He is the example our elders, staff, and ministry leaders seek to emulate.

(Sorry, no photo is available – but Jesus did not have blonde hair and blue eyes, He was Jewish.)

Preaching Minister– Sherman Sack 

Pastor Sherman is a graduate of Ozark Christian College.  He has been preaching for over 50 years and has been involved in worldwide missions in as many years.  He loves to preach and teach using the scripture as the foundation for his lessons and sermons.  He serves on the board of Christ To The Nations and has taken numerous short term mission trips to teach and encourage local pastors, students and those seeking to know and obey Christ.  Sherman has many interests such as coin collecting, rock collecting, and American History.  He and his wife Mavis were married in 1965 and have 4 daughters who have blessed them with 17 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.  He embraces the quote from C.S.

what we believe


The Bible is the inspired word of God – “A lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.”    (2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119:105)


Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and rose from the dead. (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8)


Every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)


We believe that the Bible is essential in the Christian’s life. It teaches how one receives the gift of salvation and how to live as a believer.

Faith in Christ and His Gospel:  John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Repentance from sin:  Luke 13:1-3, Acts 2:38, 2 Corinthians 7:10

Confession of Faith: Matthew 10:32, Romans 10:9,13, 1 John 2:23

Immersion into Christ:  Matthew 28:18-19, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, 22:16, Romans 6:4

Living a Christ controlled life:   Matthew 5:16, Ephesian 2:10, Colossians 3:1-2, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Revelation 2:10


We believe that all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily submitting to the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Jesus and His Lordship in their life.


The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved.  (Ephesians 1:1-16)

Jesus Christ will one day return. We will meet Him in the air and will be with Him forever.     (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
