About New Covenant Bible Church

New Covenant Bible Church is a gospel-centered church that was formed in 2010 as the result of a merger of two churches. We seek to be a church that helps everyone take the next step toward Christ as we are motivated by a love for God and others in our church and in our community. We want the culture on our staff and leadership teams and in our church to be filled with grace and motivated by the gospel. 

We currently average around 400 in attendance in our worship services on Sundays. We have a large and growing ministry to young families and serve around 175 children and youth in our Wednesday night ministries. In March of 2024, we finished a major renovation project called “Renewal for the Next Generation” with completely renovated spaces for our children and youth.
