New Life Fellowship Association, commonly known as New Life Fellowship (NLF), is a group of neocharismatic, Evangelical, Christian Churches primarily located in India. [1][2] [3][4]

New Life Fellowship began in the mid-sixties as a result of missionaries from the New Life Churches of New Zealand who came to India in 1964 out of a revival that took place in New Zealand.[5][6] They established New Life Centre in Pune and New Life Fellowship in Mumbai. Dr. S. Joseph joined the Church in Mumbai and was soon ordained Pastor and became the founding chairman of New Life Fellowship. In India, it has more than 100,000 adherents. [7]
