Welcome to New Day Church of Vandalia!
Our Purpose

Why does New Day exist? Our purpose is to help you become a disciple of Christ and experience the life-changing results that come from a genuine relationship with Him. Our vision is to be a community of disciples that are extending Christ’s Kingdom and raising up leaders. We do this by being a community that is Loving, Learning & Leading together.

At New Day: Loving Learning & Leading

Everything at New Day is about showing God's love and truth in a way that gets you filled up to make a difference in the lives of those around you. Check out the FAQ, written by our leadership team, for a better look at what Sundays are like!

Jesus called all Christians to love God with all we have, love others as ourselves and to lead others to relationship with Him.  These callings are often known as The Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39) and The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

At New Day, we live the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission by Loving, Learning, and Leading—loving God and others, learning all Jesus taught, and leading others to Christ.


Worship: Worship is one of the key terms that define our relationship with God, a way we show our love to Him, so it is integral to New Day. Most services begin with singing praises to God in worship, and this sets the tone for everything else we do. We also learn that worship is so much more than singing—it can be anything done with the purpose of bringing God glory and showing others His character. Around the church, you will see people loving on each other through serving on SERVE Teams, like Children's Ministry or the Welcoming Team. 

Friends and Family: Community is a vital aspect of New Day. Friendships and family are core to one's spiritual health, and we emphasize developing healthy interpersonal relationships. Life Groups are an excellent way to build relationships with friends and family! 


Life Application Teaching: We prioritize teaching Biblical truth that is directly applicable to real life in every teaching setting, from Kids' Church to Sunday teachings and beyond. Every Sunday you'll hear a message from our rotating teaching team. These teachings are intentionally prepared to directly apply to your life, no matter how "new" or how "seasoned" you are in your faith. 


Outreach: New Day is a church that gets each member equipped to reach others with the love of Christ. We provide opportunities for you to bless our community. The people at New Day also financially bless local and international missions regularly.

Discipleship: Learn new skills and truths to be able to experience even more with Christ and how to better share your faith. Learn more about your God-given gifts and how to use them to bless those around you.
