We are a church that joins in God's ongoing work of reconciling all things to Himself here in Seattle. We seek to empower others to show the love of God by being faithfully present in Seattle, being engaged in the specific needs and concerns of our neighborhoods, and addressing the reasons for the inequalities present in our community.

The Crete Collective (TCC)

In 2023, we joined as a member church of TCC (thecretecollective.org) to establish gospel-centered churches in distressed and neglected Black and Brown communities. In 1992, New Light was planted to declare and demonstrate the gospel in a distressed and neglected Black neighborhood in inner-city Seattle. With this as our history, we are excited to join TCC in their work of seeing more thriving churches being started in marginalized communities across the United States.

Hillman City Neighborhood Association

Jeremiah 29:7 says to "seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." Our participation in the Hillman City Neighborhood Association (hcna.mailchimpsites.com), where our building is located, gives us more ways to build relationships with our neighbors, and, prayerfully, over time, we will see gospel transformation in our neighborhood. We share collaboration opportunities for our members to love and serve our neighbors.

Racial Reconciliation Network (RRN)

We partner with the Racial Reconciliation Network (racereconciliation.com) who is actively pursuing greater degrees of gospel-centered unity, specifically focused on overcoming racial divisions within the Christian community. RRN is connecting Christians who have historically been alienated from each other, and intentionally engaging in conversations, fellowship, worship, and doing biblical justice in our communities together. We long to see many more people reconciled to God, as the result of diverse groups of Christians being reconciled to each other.
