And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at he end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. -- Habakkuk 2:2-3.


Pastor Ced McMillan (“Pastor Ced”) dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal - helping people connect with God so that they might reach their full potential. New Birth began in May 2008 as a Bible Study and formally formed as a church in May 2009. 

From the beginning, New Birth focused on reaching out to the non-churched community through radical ministry. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday services, and the simple style of New Birth brought immediate growth. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion!
