Vision

The vision of New Life Prison Ministry is to be an all-inclusive outreach across various areas of need for those who are and have been incarcerated and the families of those individuals currently incarcerated.

Our goal is to equip individuals involved in the ministry to seek resources, provide programs, form support groups, provide positive role models and to present realistic avenues for reentering society. Along with the restoration power of the Word of God, we must point these lives in the direction of their destiny.

In doing this, we reduce the rate of recidivism of offenders, reclaim their lives, and empower them with intellectual, emotional and spiritual influence which makes them positive contributors to society.

Purpose

We are all here for a purpose and some have been chosen to set the captives free. In doing so, the New Life Prison Ministry visits the incarcerated and provides spiritual guidance from the Word of God. We fellowship with our brothers and sisters who are incarcerated and we do this because we have been commanded by God to go and make disciples. Matthew 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…..” By doing this, we show them the love of Christ within us; teaching the word of God, praying, singing, praising and worshiping the all mighty God.

The New Life Prison Ministry recruits and spiritually employs participants within the church and other churches for prison ministry opportunities. This produces effective role models for the incarcerated and sets the standards high for churches across the nation.

Mission

We help the incarcerated and assist churches in the participation of prison ministry by doing the following:

  • Touch lives with Christian love.
  • Gain a deeper self-awareness.
  • Model acceptance of personal responsibility for our own life and actions.
  • Present the Gospel in clear and understandable terms.
  • Achieve a spiritual reawakening and develop a true desire to help another to change his or her lifestyle and be healed.
  • Nurture new believers in faith and discipleship.
  • Help the incarcerated take those steps necessary to become productive members of society again.
  • Help local churches develop prison ministry teams.
  • Provide training to the local church, community and interested persons.
