welcome to church

About us

NLCC is a lively, welcoming, family-friendly Elim Pentecostal church in Widnes, Cheshire.

We’re called ‘New Life’ because we believe that God changes lives and because of that we have hope and joy. We’re a small but growing community of people from different walks of life and we have a growing relationship with our friends at St Helens Christian Life Centre.

So if you’re looking for a new church home, New Life (NLCC) could be just what you’re looking for.

We meet in-person and online every Sunday and we also have midweek events such as Bible studies, prayer meetings and once-a-month gatherings for women. We hope to soon resume our children’s programme and host other events for our local community too.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, you’ll find a warm welcome at NLCC.


We currently have a small leadership team headed up by Jim and Peter. We’re big believers in the New Testament style of church, where everyone has a part to play. So if you attend New Life you will have plenty of opportunities to use your talents too. Working together, we are church, just the way God intended it to be.

Jim Williamson and Peter Cummings have both served NLCC for several years as elders. Peter has been involved in church ministry in both the Assemblies of God and Elim Churches for many years and Jim has served with NLCC for many years also.

The church leaders are supported by a group of deacons who help to keep the church running and active.

What to expect

Every Sunday is different but we usually start with worship – sometimes this is with live musicians and sometimes we use backing tracks. Every week we also share communion together and we have a message from God’s Word. There’s usually opportunity for prayer and testimony and if you’d like to, please stay afterwards for a hot drink and a chat.

What we believe

As an Elim Pentecostal church, we subscribe to a set of beliefs known as ‘Foundational Truths’. They guide all we say and do.

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

We believe in the true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His blood shed, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and His second advent to receive His Church.

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification, and that the believer is also promised an enduement of power as the gift of Christ through the baptism in the Holy Spirit with signs following. Through this enduement, the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service.

We believe in the universal sinfulness of all men since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

We believe in the necessity for salvation of repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit and a holy life.

We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and that these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.

We believe in the ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers and in the present operation of the manifold Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament.

We believe in the baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ and the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until His return.

We believe that the Gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the Gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.

We believe in the personal, physical and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign in power and glory.

We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgement of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
