RELIGION VS GOSPEL
Hey, thanks for checking out our page and welcome to New Wine Community Church. We are a brand new church in the heart of Downtown Long Beach and we are challenging people to rethink church. We aren’t perfect nor do we pretend to be. We sincerely believe that God doesn’t want you to be religious, He wants you to be real. And so what you will find on a Sunday morning is a group of ordinary people from all walks of life trying to figure out who Jesus is and what it really means to follow Him. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, so, dress comfortably and expect a few jokes here and there. The one thing we are dead serious about, however, is The Gospel (The Good News about who Jesus is, what He’s done and the difference it makes in our lives). We believe that once you discover how much God loves you and the price He paid to have a relationship with you, you’ll be captivated by His love and want nothing more than to spend the rest of your life getting to Know Him and making Him Known.
WHAT TO EXPECT
WHERE TO FIND US
Join us From
This is our playbook!!! Our goal is to know & understand God’s ways so clearly that it only makes sense to live in line with them.
We talk about Jesus…In our songs, at our services, with our words and with our lives. Our desire is to share Jesus in a way people can understand.
We Love People…All of them! Backgrounds, shapes, colors, sizes, incomes, education, single, married, young, old, gay, straight, male, female, Christian or not.
We challenge people to rethink church. We want to use relevant and modern methods of outreach and express Christ through culture.
We want to use our passions, gifts, talents and skill to create amazing experiences that transform lives & make God smile.
Our desire is that some of your strongest & closest relationships would exist here at New Wine. Why?…because if God is our father that makes all of us family.

Can I just say that I would have never imagined that my name and picture would be on a church website… let alone under the “Pastor” section. My name is Terrence Brooks, and I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Growing up, I was surrounded by drugs, gangs and violence and everyone said I would be dead or in prison before I was 20 years old, but God had a different plan. Thankfully, God used my athletic talents to earn a basketball scholarship to Huston-Tillotson University (Yes, 60lbs ago, I actually used to look like a basketball player!). But it was in college where I met God and my life was totally transformed!!! Literally, in one day my life flipped upside down. (I’ll tell you more in person). Of course, after this experience, I knew I couldn’t do anything else but help others get to know the God who changed my life. So, after college, I moved to Dallas, Texas to pursue a Master of Theology (Th.M.) at Dallas Theological Seminary. While in Dallas, God decided to spoil me and I reunited with my high school sweetheart, Javanne, and we got married in 2010, just as we had planned to do in high school. Now tell me that’s not God! We moved back to California in 2014 to start New Wine CC and to help others get to know Christ and make Him known. It would be my privilege to help you get to know Jesus or help you get to know Him better.
WE GIVE BECAUSE HE GAVE!!!
Giving isn’t a way to gain favor with God – Jesus has already done that for us. Giving is designed to be a practical way for us to joyfully respond to God’s grace, gifts and kindness to us.
