Our Church History

Our Church History 




New Life Bible Baptist Church was founded in July 2000 as a ministry outreach of Cleveland Baptist Church, Cleveland, OH.  The Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor area was laid upon the heart of our Pastor, Rev. Robert W. Mack as an area in need of a Christ honoring, soul winning, people caring Baptist church.   In this day of churches trying to fit into society, we believe it is the Principles of God that need to change people to God's way.  Our desire is to provide a church where the Word is preached (we use the KJV 1611 Bible in all of our teaching and preaching), families are strengthened (we have numerous children and youth ministries), the hurting can find healing and every believer is able to utilize his or her Spiritual Gift(s) to the honor and glory of God.

In July 2000 the first meeting was held in the home of the Adkins Family.  We quickly outgrew their home and began renting space at Washtenaw Community College, from August 2000 - November 2000.  In December 2000 we had grown to the point we could move to a facility located at 5300 W. Michigan Avenue, Ypsilanti, MI.  We have seen God move in many wonderful ways while there.



In April 2005 we were able to purchase our own building at 1175 S. Grove Rd., Ypsilanti, MI 48198.  Since then, we have seen the Lord work greatly in our midst.  Many have come to know Christ as their Savior.  We have been able to support various missionaries around the world as well as here in America.  In addition, we have been able to birth one new church, Cornerstone Baptist Church of Farmington Hills, MI.  As the church has grown we have also been able to expand the various ministries in the church to help us reach our community.


As we approach the 18th anniversary of NLBBC, we continue to see God's hand moving in our midst.  Over the years we have been able to increase our ministry reach into the community, helping others with "the Mind of Christ".  We are looking forward to Jesus Christ continuing to use our church until He comes!



Come visit us and experience a church where Christ is the leader and people care about people.
