3. Who does this church relate to outside of itself?
Our church is served by a council of three seasoned ministers who are available for both counsel and intervention to the senior team if needed.

4. How can I get involved?
There are many places to get involved at New Covenant Church. Finding a Life Group is the best place to start, with getting connected. Contact Pastor Mike Park at email@example.com for help with any question you may have in finding a place to connect. He can also be contacted at 903-757-7791 x16, or you can access the church website at www.nclongview.com and select the Life Groups tab to bring up geographical locations, addresses and phone numbers of these life sharing groups. There is also a “Life Group” table located in the auditorium with information.
5. How can I meet people?
In a church our size it can be difficult to find one-on-one time to meet people, but the key is coming and getting involved in the many "on-ramps" offered by NCC. You will find that there are relationships waiting to happen once you show up, but developing those relationships will only happen in a Life Group. Contact Pastor Mike Park at firstname.lastname@example.org for directions to a Life Group near you or visit the LIFE GROUP section of the website to find a life group near you.
6. How can I know if I’m saved?
Salvation is a gift from God to man, and is separate from works and the law. Eph. 2:8 (we are saved by grace through faith). You must first repent from all sins and have faith in God. This repentance must be a complete turn away from sin and toward God, and a change of mind that brings forth a change in behavior. By confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and believing by faith that God has raised Him from the dead, followed by repentance brings about a New Birth. This “New Birth” is a spiritual change that changes the course of your spiritual life from death to life, and is necessary for all to experience, which results in eternal life. Romans 10:9-10 discusses this very principle. It is when you have confessed the Lord Jesus and had faith, that changes begin to happen. Total Lordship of Christ is established when you do the things that Jesus says to do. When Jesus is Lord in your life, salvation is assured and guaranteed by sealing the believer with Holy Spirit of promise. Eph. 1:13-14
7. How can I get counseling?
Many different types of counseling and mentoring are available through New Covenant Church. Information can be obtained by contacting Tracie Bishop at 903-757-7791 x-29 or email email@example.com.
8. What does this church believe about spiritual gifts?
We believe that all spiritual gifts listed in the New Testament, are for today, and are intended by God to edify believer’s, meet people’s needs and further the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe God has enabled believer’s today to pray and worship in tongue’s, which is profitable for intercession, worship and communion. We believe that the public exercise of spiritual gifts should be done in an orderly fashion, as defined in scripture. Further explanation and statements can be found on the "What We Believe" section of the About page.
