In this portion of his message on his vision for New Covenant Community Church, Pastor John Young discusses spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth. We need to become more spiritually mature, accurately understanding ourselves by learning who God is and what he does for us. Emotions are good but need to be brought under God’s authority. To accurately apply scripture (which is God-breathed), it must be taught and learned in the intellectual realm. Message delivered 2/15/2009.
A large part of our Christian lives can be spent doing the things that we think we’re supposed to without grasping exactly why.

If you examine the greatest exhibitions of love by the characters in the New Testament, you’ll see they are the fruit of great forgiveness. Message delivered 1/4/2009 by Pastor Gene Hartway of New Life Fellowship in Bordentown, N.J.
John Young, our new pastor, shares that we often put unnecessary pressure on ourselves because we don’t understand God’s process. The Christmas story … the prophecy in Isaiah 9 and the events recounted in Matthew and Luke … are examples of this. Message delivered 12/28/2008.
