Fourteen years ago today, it had been raining for days on end and Lexington was flooding, but there were also showers of blessing and our hearts were being flooded with joy. New Life Baptist Church was organized on March 2, 1997, out of Trinity Missionary Baptist Church of Richmond. The Lord has been so gracious to us and has always proved Himself faithful. We are grateful for each and every one that has passed through New Life Baptist Church over the years. May the Lord continue to bring glory to Himself in and through NLBC.
“Then Joshua called the twelve men from the people of Israel, whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe. And Joshua said to them, “Pass on before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.” (read all of Joshua 4)
