New Beginnings' Newsletter

Your place for a fresh start!

April 2021


Thank you for visiting the NBC Newsletter. We are thankful you are here. The month of April brings many NEW BEGINNINGS, as we officially enter springtime. The word "April" comes from the verb "aperit," which means "to open." As we reflect on the "opening" or 'blooming" of nature around us, let us not forget that the most important "opening" was given by God the Father, Himself. After Jesus died on the cross for us, He was taken and laid in a tomb, but three days later the most life-changing "opening" occurred. God opened the tomb and Jesus was resurrected to life and seated on His heavenly throne! Without the cross there would be no forgiveness of sin, but without the opening of the tomb, there would be no power over death. Jesus has opened the door to victory over sickness, sin, and death and given that authority to each of His children. Now, that certainly gives us reason to celebrate! Join New Beginnings Church at 29 Park Place Dr., Covington each Sunday at 8:30AM or 10AM to celebrate Jesus and all He's done for us!

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.
