In the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s many believers in mainline denominational churches were baptized in the Holy Spirit. A need was seen by some of these for a church where they could worship the Lord in the liberty of the Holy Spirit, allowing the gifts of the Spirit to flow according to the Word of God to grow toward maturity and reach others in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. In such a climate, New Covenant Church of Thomasville, Georgia was born and incorporated in May 1975.
 
New Covenant Church began with 20 members with three members in the office of elder. In the Fall of 1975, the congregation called Pastor James Armstrong to lead the church. Initially, worship services were held in a home and a borrowed building. In 1978 the church purchased a house for its worship and other activities. Continued growth made it necessary to purchase a church building from a disbanding congregation in 1981.
 
Continued growth made it necessary to look for additional space for the congregation. By March 1987, a 15-acre site at the intersection of US 19 and the North Thomasville By-pass had been purchased and an 8000 sq. ft. building was constructed and dedicated. In 1989 another 8000 sq. ft. building was built which included Sunday school rooms, a large nursery, a fellowship room and a kitchen. In December 2000 the church completed a 15,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose facility, the Armstrong Outreach Center, which includes a basketball/volleyball court, a large kitchen, game room, youth room, offices and classrooms.
 
In the autumn of 2010, Pastor Dave Allen was called to NCC. Since that time, he and his wife Alli have brought a diverse blend of ministry styles, while ministering love, and compassion. They share a ministry of oneness and a strong passion to see each person realize their destiny in God as they advance God’s Kingdom in Thomas County and globally.
 
Today, NCC is a marvelous blend of cultures. We are racially diverse, generationally diverse, and socio-economically diverse.  We embrace people from all walks of life because everyone is welcome.  We are a family without walls, NCC is a place of safety, fun, learning, experience, and fresh encounters with Holy Spirit.  We are excited about what Holy Spirit is doing this year!  Come and check us out this Sunday and see for yourself how GREAT our God really is!
