Church History
New Life Christian Ministries Church was birthed from a vision given by God to Pastor W.D. Gadsden. In this vision, the Lord showed him, a church for "all people" and charged him to reach the lost at any cost.  Regardless of someone's church background, race, whether a student, single, married, rich, poor, young or old, he envisions loving them and accepting them with the love of Jesus Christ-this was the WILL of the Lord.

Pastor W.D. Gadsden has served in ministry a total of 20 plus years. He was placed in this foreign land for the work of the ministry. In 2000, a Bible study was started in the home of Pastor Gadsden. Through word of mouth, people came one by one until the house was no longer able to contain the newborn converts. Believers were added each time they met. A door was opened for the group to meet at the Yokota Air Force Base, Family Support Center, Fussa, Japan. Before the year was out, another door was opened to for the ministry to continue through signs, wonders, and miracles following the preached and taught Word of God. At this point, God began to speak to Pastor W.D. through the written Word, prophecy, and dreams' concerning what was ahead. With an outreach vision from God, He began to open doors at His appointed time to build a church where "New Life" will begin for all of His people, Behold I will do a new thing Isaiah 43:19. The Lord established a place of worship where the lost can find hope and peace through a relationship with God; the weak were strengthened through the Word of God and encouraged to move forward in victory.

New Life's service doors opened on 4 November 2001 at 2:00 PM, in a rented local church in Fussa. The Lord continued to show them His favor in multiple ways to reach people. He is adding daily to the ministry-- as a result, many souls have been saved, healed and rededicated to Christ.

On 23 June 2002 New Life was blessed to purchase their building. Afterward, they dedicated this building back to the Lord with a wonderful grand opening service. Currently, the Lord has expanded the vision of NLCMC to outreach with other local ministries throughout the Kanto Plains in foreign mission ministries from the Philippines and Africa.

New Life Christian Ministries Church received their "church covering" in July 2004 with Christian House of Prayer (CHOP) Ministries, where the Bishop Nathanial & Valerie Holcomb are Pastors. For this is a prosperous year for us, the doors of success has been opened the doors of failure has been closed, and we shall not know defeat, in Jesus Name AMEN! The Lord continues to expand New Life through the "Grand Opening" of the "Children's Potter's House Church" on 30 August 2009. At New Life we believe the same, speak the same, and see the same as the Father with "Dove Eyes".
