Our vision is to provide the community with cutting edge ministry that will be a center of worship and development for all races. Our plan is to minister to the whole man through the word of God. To lead the world to worship God through serving, loving, evangelizing, and making disciples. Through the truth and the power of the Holy Spirit, to "Go Ye" and preach and teach the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To edify the Kingdom of God by sharing Jesus with others who know of Him, but lack knowing Him as their personal Saviour.
Our mission is to reach the world with the unadulterated Word of God, with signs following; To operate in the five fold gifts, with a message of deliverance according to Ephesians 4:11-13. "And He gave some Apostles; and some Prophets; and and some Evangelists; and some Pastors; and some Teachers for the perfecting of the saints for the edifying of the body of Christ." To reach out to bless the poor, homeless, sick, needy, diseased, oppressed, depressed and those in bondage to all type of works of the enemy. To be a blessing to other ministries in an effort to unify the body of Christ.
We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Father, and to his deeds we testify: He called the world into being, creates man in his own image and sets before him the ways of life and death.
He seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.
He judges men and nations by his righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.
In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, he has come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to Himself.
He bestows upon us his Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.
He calls us into His church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be His servants in the service of men, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Christ's baptism and eat at His table, to join Him in His passion and victory.
He promises to all who trust Him forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, His presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in His kingdom which has no end.
Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto Him.
Before the Beginning of Time, God knew there would be a people hungry for His word, willing to cast asides every weight, pick up their crosses and follow Him. With this remnant of people on His heart, God formed the vision of New Beginning Faith Ministry Church. Structuring New Beginning Faith Ministry Church for such a time as this. Molding a ministry, that would meet the needs of a lost generation, provide cutting edge ministry, be a help meat to fellow Kingdom builders, and to lead the world to worship God in Spirit and Truth. Forming a church where the anointing could abide, the Supernatural could be manifested and Favor and Abundance would flow. Taking the saints of God to places they’ve never been before!
For the work God commissioned New Beginning Faith Ministry Church to do, required shepherd’s after His own heart. The Lord groomed Minister James & Evangelist Venus Ponder under Prayer Warriors In Motion for Christ under the leadership of the late Pastor Z.Q Raheem and Chief Apostle P.A. Jones. It was in this ministry that God birth these two strong warriors for Christ. They served in many positions in the ministry, and were ordained as Minister James Ponder and Evangelist Venus Ponder. In August of 2004 the Lord spoke to Minister James Ponder & his wife Evangelist Venus Ponder to hold weekly bible studies. Being obedient they began the Wednesday night bible study in their home, with seven people including themselves in attendance. These seven would become the foundational members of New Beginning Faith Ministry Church. As they embarked upon their destiny, God showed himself Mighty and Powerful by manifesting His Vision of New Beginning Faith Ministry and the motto: “Going Places You’ve Never Been Before” to them. He also led them to seek spiritual covering, guidance and leadership by allowing The late, Right Reverend Bishop, Cassie Sorrells Brown, The Apostle D.TH., & Presiding Prelate of the Shekinah Glory Deliverance Churches, Inc. to cover the ministry. Apostle Brown, D.Th. Consecrated and affirmed them as Pastors in the Lord’s Church. After only one year of Bible Study in their home, the Favor of God showered down upon His faithful servants and they were blessed with a building.. located at 2459 Roosevelt Hwy. Ste. B-9. The Hand of God was shown Mighty to all who visited, by providing all the equipment, furniture, and accessories to furnish the building paid in full. Many marveled at the work God did in such a short time with only seven people. As the vision was revealed unto His chosen leaders by the Holy Spirit, they understood that their wonderful new building would only be phase 1 of God’s awesome plans for New Beginning Faith Ministry Church. The more God revealed, the more the ministry grew. Known for their innovative “tag team preaching” style, the ministry grew by leaps and bounds. The sanctuary would be overflowing and after only a year God blessed the Ministry to move from Suite B-9, one suite to Suite C-9/10, two suites! The Ministry flourished, against the nay-sayers, against the prayers of the wicked, and the wilds of the enemy. New Beginning Faith Ministry remained steadfast and unmovable in the will of God.
During the next four years NBFMC was a place where many people would find deliverance, be healed, and blessed. The atmosphere was charged with the anointing, equipped to destroy every yoke, with the Liberty of God, that loosed every shackle and burden, and most importantly with God’s Word. In 2007 Pastor Venus Ponder was affirmed as Prophetess in the Lord’s Church. In 2008 Pastor James Ponder was Set Aside as Overseer in the Lord’s Church. As the Lord continued to manifest His Glory in NBFMC and transition the ministry to a new level, God released New Beginning Faith Ministry from the spiritual covering of the late Apostle Brown. In 2009 New Beginning Faith Ministry was blessed to ordain its first class of Disciples which included an Elder, an Evangelist, Ministers, a Deacon, Deaconess, Mothers in Zion, and an Aspirant. This would complete phase 2 in the Lord’s plan and place NBFMC in position to possess the land. During the spiritual transition God allowed Apostle Jones, the spiritual mother of Overseer and Prophetess Ponder to pray with New Beginning and assist in the birthing of the next level of Ministry. On April 18th 2010, New Beginning Faith Ministry moved into its New Sanctuary, bringing to fruition the third phase of Gods plan. On May 1, 2010 the building was consecrated and dedicated back to God for His service. In 2013 Overseer James and Prophetess Venus ordained Pastor Carnetta Frazier, and installed her as the Senior Pastor of Lover Deliverance Outreach This was the first of many churches that would come under the spiritual covering of New Beginning Faith Ministry Church. 2014 was a pivotal year for the ministry, in September, Prophetess Venus and the entire New Beginning Church family, mourned the loss of her mother Evangelist Betty Jean Bolton. She was the first member to transition into eternal life. From this blessed seed going in the ground New Beginning has experienced unprecedented miracles, manifestation, and blessings by gaining an intercessor and champion in the eternal Cloud of Witnesses. Already walking in the Apostolic anointing, Overseer James and Prophetess Venus Ponder were both affirmed to the office of Apostle in December of 2014. 2015 brought the installation and covering of two more churches; Pastor Oleda Sinkler was ordained and installed as the Senior Pastor of Commissioned Church in South Carolina, and Apostle Faye Andres, pastor of Omega Ministries International came under the covering of this great ministry.
2015 also brought opportunities for international mission. Apostle Venus, with the blessing of Apostle James and the New Beginning Family journeyed to Africa to evangelize. The Apostle made many divinely appointed connections, which have resulted in more opportunities to minister around the world. 2016 NBFMC celebrated it’s first international church installation. Pastor Andrew Borbor came under spiritual covering and renamed the church New Beginning Faith Ministry International, Sierra Leone Branch. Under the leadership and guidance of Apostles’ James and Venus Ponder, New Beginning Faith Ministry teaches today’s Christians how to apply the principles of the bible and live a holy life in an unholy world. Our vision is to provide the community with cutting edge ministry that will be a center of worship and development for all races. Our plan is to minister to the whole man through the word of God. To lead the world to worship God through Serving, Loving, Evangelizing, and Making Disciples. And Going Places You’ve Never Been Before in your Spiritual and Natural Life.
