Continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19)
Our purpose is to know, worship, and obey Jesus Christ, through following the scriptures and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We will build relationships through small group ministry, in order to advance the kingdom of God.
We are a church plant that was sent out from Chiques Church of the Brethren in 2003 . We worshiped at the Fire Company in Brickerville for 15 years. In the spring of 2018, we sensed the Lord directing us to move to Teen Central in Manheim. Our first Sunday worshiping at Teen Central was in November of 2018.
New Beginnings is an elder led fellowship. The elders team consists of 3 men, all bi-vocational, and are headed by a lead elder. The elders share the responsibilities of a pastor but receive no salary. We are also affiliated with the Church of the Brethren.
Several of our members are volunteers at Teen Central and one is on the TC Board of Directors. We will continue to encourage any Teen Central youth and their families, who are without a church home, to come and join us on a Sunday morning. We have already invited these teens and their families to come and join us for Sunday lunch and plan on similar invitations in the future.
We hope to be a small part of the spiritual renewal and revival God has in store for Teen Central, Manheim, and our nation.
