New Beginning Church was established by our current Pastor, Craig Wilson, in 1996 in the Castalia area of Memphis in a small storefront. The church later moved to 1214 Norris Road, another Memphis storefront, where after two years of ministry, still continued to thrive. The church was able to raise enough revenue to purchase the property on Norris Road, as membership grew to about 108 members at that time. The simple storefront on Norris Road stayed home for New Beginning for ten more years after that.
In 2006, New Beginning moved to 1738 Winston Avenue located in the Frayser area of Memphis, TN. New Beginning Church remained in the Winston location until our church family grew out of the building, as membership continued to grow well into over 200 members. We then moved to our current location at 2300 Frayser Blvd., also in the Frayser area.
Since moving to our current home, New Beginning has started and maintained multiple ministries which serve the Frayser community.
New Beginning Church currently owns and maintains 10 properties; 4 churches, and 6 houses with a net worth over $1 Million.
