About Our Church

Welcome to New Life Baptist Fellowship. In July of 2007 Thirty-seven people stepped out in faith believing that God was leading to begin a new ministry. Pastor C. Powers Payton was requested to help in new venture of faith. The church was without any help, but God’s. In February 2009 Pastor Powers was called to be the church’s first pastor. During our early years we met in various locations and sought where the Lord would want us to have a permanent location. God provided an excellent spot along M-6 and Burlingame Ave. in the north part of Byron Center. With God’s blessing and the dedication of our congregation, a new building now stands as a testimony that God still does great things. We dedicated our new building in May of 2013. Since that time we have continued to see God work in us and through us. If you are interested in finding a church that still believes in the authority of the Scriptures, the saving message of God’s forgiveness in Jesus Christ, and the joy that comes when Christian love one anther, we invite you to check us out. You will find a warm welcome here. Our pastor communicates effectively the Word of God, our congregation expresses the joy of the Lord, and we together know how much we all need the Grace of God in our lives.
