Our Story

We each have a story of our own lives. New Life Church also has a story! Our story begins with a word from the Lord...


In 1993 the Lord spoke to Pastor Keener Batchelor to start New Life Church and led him to the property on N. Park Avenue. The Lord spoke again years later to build a new worship center on the property and in 2001, the original sanctuary was converted to a fellowship hall and services were moved to a second, much larger building.


After 19 wonderful years pastoring New Life and over 37 years pastoring, Pastor Keener transitioned to a new season in ministry in 2012 and Pastor Jason Batchelor, who had served as the church's Associate Pastor since 1997, became the new pastor of New Life Church.


That's where we've been. But our story doesn't end there. In fact, it is just beginning!
