New Covenant Life
Many Christians today say they believe in the ‘new covenant’ but how they live their lives tells another story. While parroting New Covenant theology, believers too often actually live from an old covenant mindset.

Quite frankly, without the New Covenant, there is no Gospel message. New Covenant Life teaches believers to understand, embrace and live out the New Covenant promises.
