A Heartfelt Welcome
. . . we send to both the New Beginnings Christian Church family and you who are visiting our church website to find out more about New Beginnings. We hope and pray that you will be blessed and/or challenged by what you read, see, and hear as you wander through the pages of this website. New Beginnings is a fellowship of miracles. The Great God (the 'I AM' of Scripture) of heaven, earth, and all that is in them has shined His Face upon our congregation equipping leadership with spiritual gifts to build our fellowship into a family of Ambassadors for Christ, representing Him.
As you peruse through the various pages on the New Beginnings Christian Church website you will find that our fellowship is quite unique. Here you will find many foreign words to many Christians, words such as Sabbath, Passover, Pentecost, Feasts, obedience, repentence, and more. You will aslo find here that words such as Santa, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and other such words are recognized as both non-Biblical and belonging to today's world (remember Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world.").
So, here is the challenge to you Brothers and Sisters. Search the Scriptures to test if what you see and hear from New Beginnings Christian Church is true. Study and learn with us as we continue to discover truths from the Word of God.
TO OUR VISITORS
Thank you for taking the time to find out about New Beginnings Christian Church. Please understand that New Beginnings is not affiliated with any denomination – Baptist, Pentecostal, Seventh-Day Adventist, Catholic . . . none. This eliminates the "middle man" between God and our fellowship. Here you will find Brothers and Sisters in Christ, our Messiah, worshipping the Great I AM in "Spirit and Truth," upholding sound Biblical teachings and not "the traditions of men" to their high priority.
As you will notice from the worship times above we do meet every Saturday (Sabbath). Please refer to your Bible where you will find that those Believers following God also worshipped and rested on the seventh day of the week, or Saturday. Beginning with a lesson study at 9:30 am, various classes are provided for everyone from the tiny tots to adults, and even include a class in Espanol (Spanish), so please bring your Bible. After the "Sabbath School" study, the time for worship in song and praise to our Great God and Saviour is a blessing you will not want to miss with contemporary Christian musical selections sprinkled with traditional selections as well!

WE ARE UNASHAMED OF WHO WE ARE
The Fellowship of the Unashamed
I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit's Power. The die has been cast, I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, lame visions, mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith, love by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power. My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is haeaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my Guide is reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred, lured away, turned back, diluted or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won't give up, back up, let up, or shut up until I've preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until He returns, give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes.
And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My colors will be clear, for "I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes . . . " Romans 1:16

TO OUR NEW BEGINNINGS CHURCH FAMILY
A hearty greeting and genuine welcome we send to you our New Beginnings family. Isn't it exciting to experience God working in our lives and hear timely up-to-date messages from Pastors Troy, Stacy, TJ, and occasional guest speakers? Pastor Troy refers to our building as an ark, like Noah's ark in the Bible. We can compare the adventurous ride we are on to the ark of Noah, exciting and unsettling at times, but always safely in God's care are we.
