New Life Baptist Church is a Bible believing fellowship that has been meeting, worshiping, and serving the Lord together since November, 18th, 1996. That first Sunday we met at Johnson School on Wilkes Ave. Following that we worshiped together at Truman School on Pine Street where we officially constituted our church as New Life Baptist Church on September 14th, 1997. We celebrate this Anniversary Sunday every September. From 1997 to 2004 we rented the former “New Testament Baptist Church” on El Rancho Drive. During this time we continued to pray and ask for God’s guidance. God provided for many of our needs during this time. In 1999 God blessed us with 8 acres of property at our present location on W. Locust. Our first worship service at our W. Locust property was on April 4th, 2004. In 2009 we purchased an additional 3.5 acres adjoining the church property. In the spring of 2010, sensing God’s leading, we approved a Long Range Planning guide. We look forward to seeing where and how God leads us forward.
