New Era Church is a Word-centered ministry where no one is left behind.  Our mission to evangelize the lost, edify the saved, minister to those in need and be a conscience in the community provides a holistic approach to our family-oriented ministry. We are a multi-ethnic, multicultural ministry in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. Our only purpose is to glorify Christ and honor the Father by bringing the Kingdom Agenda to Earth.

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:1-3 (NIV)
