New Life has maintained its focus on three principles since 1988: True Truth, Redemptive Relationships and Total Transformation. New Life has a network of 1,000 Christian counselors and therapists around the country who help the thousands of people who call 800-NEW-LIFE. What used to be done in hospitals and treatment centers happens now in weekend and online intensives involving both therapists and speakers. Every Man’s Battle, Restore, Emotional Freedom and Intimacy In Marriage are some of the intensive events conducted by New Life.
