About Us

"Where Everyone is Accepted, and No One is Judged."

Founding member Alan Jones and Pastor Tracy Patton were called by God to open a loving and affirming church in Southern Indiana in March of 2010.  They held their first service in May of 2010 in a bingo hall in Jeffersonville, Indiana and shortly thereafter New Beginnings Non-Denominational Church was incorporated.  By June of 2011, the congregation had grown from its five original members to the point that the bingo hall could no longer accommodate the group, and New Beginnings moved to a new location in the basement of the 300 Spring building on Spring Street in downtown Jeffersonville where the congregation continued to grow.  In January of 2014, recognizing the need for more space as the congregation grew to include over 100 members, the church relocated to a purpose-built space in the Quartermaster Station in Jeffersonville.

In October 2016, New Beginnings moved to its current location at 1615 Spring Street in Jeffersonville and for the first time has a stand alone facility that includes a sanctuary, offices, a fellowship hall and separate nursery and Children's Meeting room.
