New Creation Church was organized under the leadership of Dr. Ella Virginia Redfield, who was committed to beginning a new Christian witness in Montgomery County, Maryland.
In the fall of 1994, to generate community interest, a Brochure was prepared and distributed in the Silver Spring/Wheaton areas announcing the Creation of a New Baptist Church. The Brochure read “A Church that is Christ Centered, Holy Spirit Empowered, Christian Education focused, and Mission minded. A Church with Faith, Hope and Love. A Church that really cares!” The first organizational meeting was held October 29th, 1994 at the Holiday Inn, Silver Spring, Maryland, where fourteen people decided to accept the Call to pioneer a New Church.
At the second organizational meeting held November 5, 1994, the members unanimously agreed that name of the church will be New Creation Baptist Church, and officers were elected. On November 19th, 1994, a Council of six neighboring Sister Churches was invited to consider recognizing this Body of Believers as a regular and independent Baptist Church. In light of the positive and encouraging responses and the Ecclesiastical support of the Council, it was resolved that this new Christian body, New Creation Baptist Church, be established.
New Creation Baptist Church held its first Worship Service, Sunday December 4th, 1994 at the Wheaton Presbyterian Church of Wheaton, Maryland. Since its beginning, New Creation Church has increased in members, elected new officers and leaders, and established Ministries to meet the needs of the Church and Community.
The Summer Enrichment and Empowerment Program, and the Christmas in July Program provides a fun, learning, loving and spiritual experience for children. The Senior Adult Ministry, the “Golden Leisurites”, reaches out to senior adult communities and offers inspiration, information, and fun activities for those living in their Golden years. The New Creation Feeding Program provides food to the Mid-County United Ministries, serving the Wheaton Community. In addition, the Church also serves the community by providing Free Produce to families of 900 or more individuals.
This Christian Body continues to seek God’s Will as we advance the Kingdom of God. We are convinced that “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered our hearts what God has in store for us.” We believe God has a plan uniquely designed for New Creation!
New Creation Church has been blessed abundantly, and we have reached a place called, “Possibility Juncture”, where all things are possible. As we move forward and upward, by the grace of Almighty God, we are more than confident that God is faithful, and this ministry will continue to unfold and rise to New Heights to the Glory and Honor of God!
