Our History

New Life Christian Center with 6 people present held its first service on June 25, 1995 at Martin Luther King Park in Auburn, Alabama. Soon after, services were moved to the home of our Pastors. The Lord continually and faithfully blessed this ministry. On March 10, 1996 service was held in a rented facility on Frederick Road in Opelika, Alabama. During the following four years, God continually prospered the ministry. In August of 2000, the ministry purchased 10 acres of property conveniently located near Interstate 85, Exit 64. In September of 2000 the ministry moved to another rented facility on Columbus Parkway. In December 2002 the purchased property was cleared and construction began in January of 2003. On August 16, 2003, Pastor and Cheryl were joined by several members of the congregation along with friends as we took our victory walk of 3.7 miles from Columbus Parkway to our new location. On Sunday, August 17, 2003 the first service was held in the new sanctuary located at 2051 West Point Parkway. To God be the Glory!!
