Real People, Real Freedom

You might be wondering, what's it really like at New Freedom Church? Simply stated, at New Freedom, we are all about experiencing the love of Jesus. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. Our church is made up of imperfect people with many different backgrounds.

Want to know the best part? No matter what you've been through, going through, or what questions you might have about God and faith, we are a place where you'll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus offers to everyone.
