Meet New Beginnings Community Church:

New Beginnings Community Church is a Protestant non-denominational Spirit-filled church where everyone is welcome. It began on January 31, 1994, meeting in Grady Rasco Middle School for five years, until we purchased and built on our present-day 13-acre site. The church sits in Clute but has a Lake Jackson address. How is this possible? Whoever owns the street, sets the address. Lake Jackson owns Dixie from Plantation to Oyster Creek Drive. New Beginnings is 100% debt free! Our church facility is approximately 16,000 sq ft. The main building is 14,000 sq ft and the Fellowship Hall is 2,000 sq ft.  New Beginnings sits on part of the old Eagle Island Plantation (Eagle Island Plantation was one of Stephen F. Austin’s original 300 families that founded Texas) The church property is one of the most beautiful in town! We are a friendly community that welcomes everyone to worship with us.
