New Beginnings Church

Executive Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Keith Twigg

Senior Associate

The Executive Pastor role at New Beginnings Church provides the right candidate a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a team and a church powered by prayer and the mission of Jesus! God is on the move at New Beginnings.

About This Organization

New Beginnings Baptist Church met for the first time on Sunday, June 19, 1983, with 67 people in attendance. These people united their hearts, lives, and resources to offer a fresh ministry to northwest Longview. The church called its first staff two weeks later, and an office building was secured for meeting facilities. Affectionately remembered as the “storefront,” the building soon was too small, so the young church acquired adjacent space and removed walls to accommodate the growing family. Later, they secured another building as the “storefront” expanded a third time. Eventually, the congregation purchased property at George Richey Road and Remington Trail (the current Longview campus). Construction soon began on a permanent facility here, and the first Sunday in these facilities was January 12, 1986. In the late 1980s, the church expanded its facilities several times to accommodate everyone attending.

New Beginnings is known in their community for being a place where it is safe to struggle and be authentic. In a community/region where cultural Christianity is prevalent, they have seen many people come to New Beginnings who have been alienated by the church or who felt like the church was fake, ingenuine, or hypocritical. The pastors here speak authentically from the stage, which fosters a community of authenticity in groups and, in turn, in the community.

The mission of New Beginnings is People connecting people to Jesus and his ever-restoring life, where we live, work, and play.
