New Beginnings Church Flower Mound was founded by Pastor Joseph R. Fields, supported by Westside Baptist Church of Lewisville, Texas; by the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT), the Denton Baptist Association (DBA), Village Church of Lewisville, TX, Crossover Bible Fellowship, Houston, TX and Silverlake Church of Pearland, TX.
Every time a new work begins it brings energy, excitement, anticipation, and great expectations of what God has in store. Perhaps, like no other Christian experience, beginning a new church captures the essence of what we witness in the book of Acts. New Beginnings Church planned location was Flower Mound, Texas. However, due to the overwhelming guidance and direction of God, our plan was not God’s plan. God has seen fit to bless us with an unbelievable facility in the city of Lewisville to launch this new exciting work.
Bible Study was kicked off strong in July at Pastor Fields home and then in September 2009 we began having bible study at 260 W. Continental Drive Suite B in Lewisville, TX, where we leased the facility from the International Commission. Through many prayers and diligent preparation our first service was held November 1, 2009 and it was a spirit filled day! As Pastor Joe continued to preach God’s word fearlessly, God blessed New Beginnings with our first 50 families in only five months. We celebrated this milestone with a Jubilee Feast in April 2010. God gave Pastor Fields a vision to reach out to the immediate community and on June 5, 2010, New Beginnings hosted it first Community Outreach event. There was fellowship, ministries were represented, and the community came to support including Lewisville Police and Fire departments. Most importantly five were baptized, what a spirit filled day that was. On September 12, 2010, of this year we started Family Faith Hour (Sunday school) and an 11 am service to accommodate needs of the church family and the community.
This year (2012), God has blessed New Beginnings Church to purchase our own facility located at 1687 S. Edmonds Lane (current facility). We were abundantly blessed with 4 acres of land accommodating a Sanctuary, Education and portable buildings. Having the Education Building allows us to provide Children’s Church every Sunday at 11am.
God has also blessed us to formulate the following Ministries: Praise Team, Music, Media, Assimilation, Outreach, Youth, Facilities, Children’s, Creative Christian Arts, Education, Hospitality, Communications, Men’s and Women’s, along with Usher/Greeters Ministries. God has truly blessed us and we look forward to what has in store for New Beginnings!
The God-Given Mission for Our Church
Our mission at New Beginnings Church Flower Mound is to glorify God by introducing Jesus Christ as Lord to any individual that the Holy Spirit presents the opportunity for us to do so, and to help develop those that accept Christ as Lord and Savior into His image.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age. Amen. ~ Matthew 28:19-20
The Vision: The Way We See Ourselves Accomplishing Our Mission
Our vision is for our lives to reflect the revealed character of God. We embrace a lifestyle that manifests the Spirit of God, and we see ourselves impacting any mission field that God places before us.
But the fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Long Suffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self Control. Against such there is no law. ~ Galatians 5:22-23
What We Believe: The Foundation that Sustains Our Mission
We Believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power.
We Believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the incarnate reality of God.
We Believe in the Holy Spirit as the divine helper, assistant, counselor, and instructor
We Believe the Scriptures to be God’s Holy Word without error as originally written inerrant in principle and infallible in content and is the sole authority for life.
We Believe in Humanity that man was created by and for God and in the image of God.
We Believe in Salvation in God’s saving grace; that the blessings of salvation are free to all through the Gospel of Jesus Christ;
We Believe in the Church as being composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
We Believe in the Lord’s Supper, it is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We Believe in Baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as our personal Savior. Baptism is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life.
We Believe in the bodily Resurrection of all the dead; both believers and non believers.
