It starts with a gift. But it's so much more. Every child has a story. For 1.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that comes from having a mom or dad in prison. At Angel Tree, we find ways to reach out to these children, by sharing Christ's love with them at Christmas and by developing year-round relationships. In the end, it's so much more than giving Christmas gifts-it's about restoring families. Contact: Sharon Timo atmailto:

Lifesong for Orphans
New Beginnings Church has partnered with LifeSong for Orphans to help facilitate our Church Adoption Fund. While many Christian families have the desire and resources to care for a child, initial costs keep many from following God's call to adopt. Our fund is designated for families in our local area and includes a Loan Program and a Grant Program to assist families with the cost associated with Adoption.

Grow Gods Kingdom.
To be a worldwide mission center,
To develop ministries, mission
At New Beginnings, the term “missional” is understood from the Great Commission mandate (Matthew 28:19-20).
A genuine disciple will belong to the Great Commission mission; be involved in action of the Great Commission mission, and be engaged in the process of the Great Commission mission of God. Eliminating poverty, caring for the widow and orphan, stopping political injustice, or thwarting ethnic oppression, are not the final goals of the mission of God. These social actions, as they were important to Jesus, should also be important to Jesus' disciple. However, we believe the mission of God is incomplete without integration of the Great Commission.
The Great Commission mandate is to lead people to a regenerating, saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to witness them transform into the likeness of Christ by making them His disciples.
At New Beginnings, our core value is to be a Missional Church.
Missional churches look different than other churches. Missional churches believe that there is a broader vision for discipleship, a vision that results in obedience, not merely knowledge. They focus on obedience to Jesus’ commands rather than just knowing God’s commands. The test of our ability to disciple people is not how many times we gather people to download more information into their brains rather, the test of our ability to disciple is how effectively we move people to obey the command of being Christ's witnesses (Acts 1:8).
A missional disciple is a disciple who belongs to the mission; is involved in the action of the mission, or is engaged in the process of the mission.
At New Beginnings, our desire is for every disciple to be a missionary.
The Bible teaches that mission activity is a vital part of discipleship to Jesus (Matthew 5:1-2; 10:1-42). It is clear that all disciples are called to join God in his mission in some fashion. The specifics of how one engages in missions should be tailored to one's gifts and abilities. A disciple of Jesus will see that carrying the message of salvation to the world is a vital part of discipleship.
