NWBC History

The History of NWBC

NWBC was formed by people who felt a new work in the county was needed to reach out with the Good News and welcome all people regardless of race, color, social or economic status; and to create an atmosphere where all can mature spiritually and vigorously reach the lost in the county and beyond.

The church was constituted on August 12, 1998, in a meeting at the Lincolnton Club House with 56 in attendance. 

On August 19, 1998, the church called Rodney Pierce as its first Pastor. He served until October 1998.

Charles Swann served as Interim Pastor from October 1998 until the church voted to call him as full-time pastor in March 1999. Pastor Swann served until April 2002.

The Church purchased a seven acre tract of land on Double Branches Road on August 12, 1999.

October 3, 1999 the church voted for the permanent name to be New Work Baptist Church.

Construction of the building began in January 2001. 

New Work Baptist Church was admitted to the Augusta Association of Baptist Churches in October 25, 2001. Warren Baptist Church was contacted and agreed to act as our mentor.

The first regular service was held in the new building on January 16, 2002. Services were held off and on until April 21, 2002, when the church permanently moved to the new building at 4900 Double Branches Road.
