Next Steps

No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, New Day Christian Church is here to help you.

Get Baptized

Baptism declares to the world you’ve trusted Jesus, joined God’s family, and made a commitment to follow Jesus, heart and soul. It’s pretty special! At New Day, we follow the example of Jesus and the practice of the early church and baptize by immersion.

Got questions? Check out this FAQ.


Going public for Jesus takes boldness and we want to encourage you to continue making bold moves for Jesus. At New Day, we would like to invite you to join us on the journey of faith as we follow Jesus together.

If you’d like to make a commitment to following Jesus and get baptized, we would love to witness it! Ask one of our pastors at church for more info. If you’ve already been baptized, your next step may be to attend the New to New Day Class and join a small group.

New to New Day Class

Are you new to New Day or have you been around here for a while and still have questions about why we do the things we do, what we believe, or how we operate? Are you thinking that New Day might be the place where God wants you to commit to serving and growing as a member of a church family? Are you wanting to learn more about New Day? If so, then our New to New Day class is for you.

We believe that it’s important for people to have as much information as possible in order to decide what church to call home. The New to New Day class is a four-week class that addresses the history, practices, beliefs and doctrines of New Day and explains the expectations for leaders and members. Our expectation is that every person considering becoming a member of New Day will complete the New to New Day class before making that commitment.

For more information contact Pastor Mike Shellabarger at .

Small Groups

Community is important at New Day. With such a large congregation, having smaller groups to connect with helps you feel more like you belong- like family. Small groups also provide an opportunity to learn and grow in your relationship with Christ. Our goal is to create an authentic, multi-generational community which is truly a spiritual family.

Groups meet on a regular basis to share life and grow in faith together. These groups meet in homes, coffee shops, and offices all around Port Charlotte, North Port and the Punta Gorda area. There are groups for whatever stage of life you are in. Connecting with others in a small group is a great way to build Godly community and to grow in your journey with Christ.

Care & Counseling

New Day Care Ministry

New Day has a Care Ministry that comes alongside people who are hurting or have special needs.

We have a Hospital Care Team that visits those who are in the hospital daily to offer comfort and encouragement.

Our Home Care Team provides weekly visits to those who are homebound or in various facilities designed to meet the needs of those who are currently unable to live at home.

For information or if you know someone who needs the care of one of these teams, contact Pastor Matt Marion at


We also offer pastoral counseling for the people of New Day who need help or guidance in personal or relational struggles. We do refer people to godly professional counselors when needed and work with families to help secure funding for these services.
