Our Church History

          In 1996, Pastor Foy, started a Bible study in his home. The Bible study group grew as did the need for a larger place. After sharing the need with a local ministry, they graciously allowed us the use of their facility. On November 6, 1996, we held our first public Bible study. After sensing the need to do something more, we prayed. In December 1996, we held our first Sunday worship service. The next year, Pastor Foy met with officials at the New Orleans Baptist Association. The results gave way to the birth of the New Life Ministry as a New Church Plant in the City of New Orleans. .

          After a while, we then became inspired to develop a Praise Team to lead us into the worship experience. Not long afterward, we turned our attention to the development of an educational/discipleship Program. Approximately six months later, we launched our Sunday school program with three age-appropriate classes. Notwithstanding, that was not enough, so we begin training more teachers. Within a year, we increased our Sunday school program to seven age-appropriate classes. Before long, New Life Ministry had evolved into a full-grown ministry with various extended ministries.

          After six years, God blessed us again, this time with the opportunity of purchasing our own building. The prospect of purchasing our own building generated a spirit of excitement among the members. Also, our new community afforded us the privilege of doing outreach ministry for the first time. Through the outreach ministry, we were able to develop and cultivate new relationships within that community.

          The excitement of having our own place facilitated us growing into a strong healthy ministry. Unfortunately, we did not calculate Hurricane Katrina or anything like her. We assumed that time that New Life Ministry would outlive us all. But like many other churches, we were totally unprepared for this sort of devastation. Yes, to our regret, New Life Ministry had crashed beyond repair. The body of Christ was scattered, our homes were lost, and families were disconnected. For all practical purposes, it appeared as if New Orleans would not recover. Thank God we were wrong! God had other plans for both New Orleans and New Life Ministry. God had overruled the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. 

          In April 2009, Pastor Foy by the will of God made a decision to reboot this awesome work of God from scratch. Thus, once again, with the support of the New Orleans Baptist Association and others, we are here today celebrating not only our 13th Year Church Anniversary. Without a doubt, it has become quite clear to the New Life Ministry Baptist Church family that God has an absolute plan for this ministry. For this reason, we thank each of you for your labor of love and support in the reestablishing and preserving of this New Life Ministry. But most of all, we give thanks to our God who has made all of this possible for us. We have truly come to learn that, “IF GOD BE FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?” Please continue to pray for us as we prepare for whatever great things God has in store for us as we endeavor to press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!!!
