Why we exist

Our Mission

New Life Fellowship is a non-denominational spirit led church founded by Pastors Layne and Pamela Dietz. One of our core principles is to “Love God and Love People”. Our actions and service within the community follow this principle. We strive to simultaneously “Make Jesus Famous”, by teaching and practicing His Gospel in our daily lives.

Our Vision

Founding Pastors

Layne & Pamela Dietz

Pastors Layne and Pamela founded NLF in 1994 with a vision to see the Kingdom of God come and His will be accomplished on earth as it is in Heaven.

With a passion for the presence of Holy Spirit and a love for God’s people they have experienced the blessing of pastoring a transgenerational church for the past twenty-three years.

Their love for all generations walking hand in hand as modeled by Joshua and Caleb is the heartbeat of NLF today. Their mandate to the Joshua generation has always been, “Our ceiling – your floor.”

Pastor Layne loves riding his Harley and Pamela is on staff at Resolute Health Hospital in New Braunfels as the Pastoral Care and Volunteer Coordinator. Their favorite thing to do is spend time with their three grandchildren.
