New Beginnings' Newsletter

Your place for a fresh start!

February 2021


February is the month of love and at New Beginnings we celebrate the agapē love of God, the Father. Agape love is defined as the steady intention of the will to another’s highest good. God is the source of this kind of agapē love: “We love, because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19. This love is characterized by unselfishness and giving, even to the point of sacrifice. It’s an unconditional love that doesn’t judge based on performance. In John 3:16 we find this love sacrifice, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Join us as we celebrate the love of Jesus here at New Beginnings Church each Sunday at 8:30am and 10am at 29 Park Place Dr., Covington. Hope to see you there!

The Vision and Purpose of NBC


The vision of New Beginnings is to reach the Northshore community with the life giving message of Jesus Christ, and to teach those we reach to become true disciples, ultimately reproducing themselves. We say it like this....reach and teach we don't just want them to know, but to grow.


The purpose of New Beginnings is to be a life giving beacon of hope, a sanctuary for the hopeless, and a haven for the downtrodden. As Jesus Himself said, "It's not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick". New Beginnings is a place for a fresh start.
