Our Story

Our Story


Our New Life story began with a God-breathed calling to reach the state of Arkansas. We made the move from Louisiana with our four young children in November of 2000.

Bezet Family - 2001

On February 4, 2001, we had our first service in a renovated car dealership in downtown Conway with a handful of committed people who were willing to serve. By the unexplainable grace of God, NLC has grown far beyond what any of us could have imagined in those first few days.First Conway Campus

Imagine What a Church Can Do - 2002

In August of 2001, we opened our second campus in Maumelle. Over the following year, that campus began to grow exponentially as people invested in the vision. From the outset of this journey, we have been grateful to work alongside an incredible team of pastors and leaders in each city who help carry out the vision God placed in our hearts.

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
