New Life Fellowship began on April 15, 1984 when seven families met together at Hinkletown Mennonite School. The mission of the church was to have a charismatic Mennonite Church that provided a place of healing for hurting people. The congregation met several different places during that first year including Faith Tabernacle, Colonial Motor Lodge and Holiday Inn at Denver. In February of 1985 a building was purchased at 315 Washington Ave. in Ephrata. During the next ten years the congregation out grew this building. For a short period of time the church met at the Terrie Hill fire hall. The 420 East Fulton Street property was purchased and in August of 1995 construction on the present building was begun with the congregation providing lots of free labor. The first service was held in the new facility in November of 1995.
In 2005 we made a decision to leave the Mennonite denomination and joined HopeNet Fellowship of Churches, a regional network of churches that provides oversight for our pastors and fellowship and support among leaders.
As we continue to grow we desire to be a blessing to our community, be a place where people can build meaningful relationships and help people grow spiritually.
