History of New Life Community Church

Our church was founded in 1859 as Mt. Pleasant Free Will Baptist Church. For 140 years it saw many changes and ministers, yet an on-going ministry continued throughout the community.

In October of 2000, under the leadership of Pastor Gerald Prior, the leaders in the church saw a need to expand the outreach of the ministry and decided to separate from the Free Will Baptist Association. The new congregation went forward as an Inter-Denominational Body of Believers known as Mount Pleasant New Life Community Church. It was at this time that Elders were called to leadership within the church to help with ministry and the church body.

As the church body grew, Brother Bart Pemberton, one of the elders and a former pastor of Mt. Pleasant FWB, expanded our ministry by starting another congregation known as New Directions in 2005 in the Springfield area.

Our vision for the future is to continue to reach out to the community and spread the gospel throughout all the earth.
