Joe and Sharon Mayeux
We were married in 1990 and immediately realized we had a family situation that was unexpected and we were not prepared for. Being the second marriage for both of us, and bringing five children together from our previous marriages, we stepped into a world that millions of Americans live in everyday, the blended family, the step family. Through the process of following Jesus Christ as His disciples and learning how to make two families into one, New Life Ministries was formed. From the pain of our first marriages being broken and the personal consequences, we began to see where we could have done some things differently and set out to be married well.
New Life Ministries
New Life Ministries was founded in 2005 and is located in Birmingham, Alabama. NLM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, a ministry of discipleship in Jesus Christ with an emphasis on marriage. Our calling is to help men and women, particularly married couples, grow in intimacy with God and with their spouse. The focus is on the two most important relationships a married person can have, that with God and with their spouse.
Our calling is to work with men and women, primarily married couples, helping them build stronger marriages and developing strong personal lives, individually, as disciples of Jesus Christ. We accomplish this through the study and application of God’s Word, marriage training, mentoring, life coaching and prayer.
Statement of Faith
God is One God, eternally existing in Three Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten Son; conceived by the Holy Spirit; born to the virgin Mary. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died for the sins of all people, was buried, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into Heaven, is seated at the Father’s right hand, will return personally and visibly to the earth, is the Head of the Church and there is salvation in no one else.
Man was created in the image and likeness of God, chose to sin and thus experienced separation from God. Apart from personal salvation through Jesus Christ, man stays separated from God and will experience judgment and eternal damnation. Redemption of spirit, soul, and body was provided at the cross through the death of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, our Substitute. Salvation is available to all by the gift of God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
The Holy Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only standard for faith and life.
The Holy Spirit indwells all who trust in Christ alone for personal salvation. The Holy Spirit also comforts and guides believers. He was sent to prepare the church, the bride of Christ, to be joined forever to God the Son, Jesus Christ, as His eternal wife and companion.
