Who are we?
We’re a multi-ethnic, community of believers with a rich heritage who are passionately following after Christ. We believe in a God who is alive and active in our world today, moving in supernatural ways to restore broken relationships, to help physical and emotional hurts, to break addictions, and to transform lives. In Him, we find Life, new and full and exciting (John 10:10), and we want everyone to experience God in a real and mighty way.
On January 22, 2005 Christopher Welch was inspired with a vision from God to begin a church. Through fasting and praying God gave him the Name, the Vision and the Mission for the church. On January 22, 2005 New Direction Christian Community Church was ordained. On this day Christopher Welch became Pastor of twenty-five members: 17 adults and 8 children.
New Direction experienced its first Worship Service January 23, 2005 at Cornerstone of Faith Community Church. On January 26, 2005 the church became incorporated with the State of Texas.
In 2006 many ministries were birthed at New Direction which included ministries for men, women, and children, intercessory prayer and evangelism/outreach. That was only the beginning of what God was doing.
On September 18, 2008, a great storm came and destroyed Cornerstone of Faith Community Church. The windows of heaven opened on September 28, 2008, and God Blessed New Direction with Greater Love Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. On March 1, 2009 God’s promise and vision came forth. God delivered our current location at 2670 Spring Creek Spring, Texas 77373.
