Welcome to The Dome at New Life!


If it’s your first time here, we are excited you found us! Here, you should find it all … updates, events, how to get connected, ways to serve … you name it! Also, connect with us on social media! Again, we welcome you to New Life Church!

New Life Church is one church in multiple locations … and you are currently visiting The Dome at New Life! We believe in reaching as many people as we can across multiple communities. We humbly realize that church is not a building, but rather a movement of a body of believers powered by the strength of Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to have a significant IMPACT for Christ in every community we serve. We invite you to experience New Life in Christ!


What To Expect

A warm welcome as you enter through our doors, a family-friendly environment, delicious donuts & coffee, dynamic worshipping of our Lord and Savior, and an engaging message by Senior Pastor Mike Hilson that preaches and teaches God’s Word.

Common Questions

We are Wesleyan, which is an evangelical, Protestant denomination. Our name is in honor of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, whose emphasis on a life of faith, self-discipline and perfect love is our example. We offer the Good News that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a wonderful, personal relationship with God, a holy life empowered by His Spirit for witness and service, and assurance of eternal life in Heaven.

For more information on Wesleyan beliefs, visit the Wesleyan Church online at www.wesleyan.org.

We believe in one God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God is our Savior, our Sustainer and our Redeemer. He is the Giver of eternal life. We believe that those who receive new life in Christ are called to live a life holy in character and conduct. We live this way by being filled with the Holy Spirit. We wholeheartedly believe in the Bible and seek to establish our faith and actions on its teachings. We believe God’s will for people everywhere is to know Him and to have that close, personal relationship with Him. Our purpose at New Life is to have a significant IMPACT for Christ in every community we serve. We can do this through our witness, worship and loving deeds, and of course, through the power and grace of God.
We tend to get this question a lot as we continue to grow and expand as a church. We truly are one church in multiple locations. We have grown and multiplied into several churches and video venue campuses throughout Maryland and Virginia. Out of New Life Church, 5 church plants have successfully launched and continue to thrive and grow. We also have 3 video venue locations. What does that mean? It means that these locations (or campuses, as we call them) will hear Senior Pastor Mike Hilson preach the Word of God via video. New Life La Plata is the first and main campus location. The other campus locations include The Dome at New Life on the New Life La Plata campus (right across the parking lot); New Life Gainesville in Gainesville, Virginia; and New Life Alexandria in Alexandria, Virginia.
