We Believe...

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.


We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error.


We believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for their sin.


We believe every Christian should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.

We believe the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.

Our History...

In June of 1992, Pastor Mark and his wife, Susie, began a small group in their home. Within three months they were holding Sunday morning worship services in their garage.

 

 

While searching for a more permanent facility, they learned a church within our conference was looking for a pastor. With Pastor Mark's personal drive and leadership style, pastoring an existing church was not an option.

 

After much prayer and planning, God brought the two groups together as one. After locking the doors of the existing church and removing any remnants of what was, New Beginnings was birthed in November of 1992, with 35 faith-filled believers.

 

By 1995, we had grown to two morning services. In 1999, we had maxed out the facility and parking at 200, and decided to relocate.

 

The old Carter Lumber site was purchased that same year and Building 1 was remodeled immediately. New Beginnings moved in January 1, 2000. We soon maxed out our 240 seat sanctuary in two services.

 

Once again we found ourselves in need of more space. The Phase II building project began in the spring of 2004. We moved into our 600 seat sanctuary in the newly remodeled Building 2 and we continue to venture into the world to be an impactful force for God's Kingdom.
