Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

My name is Brian Merchant, and I am the founding Pastor of New Beginnings Missionary Baptist Church. We are a church plant started by the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas (BMA) in January 2000 and organized in June 2004. We are excited the Lord has brought our church to Cordes Dr here in Venus, Texas where we have been so blessed from everyone within the Reese Community. We have about 60 members and looking for more as the Lord leads those to us who are looking for a smaller church atmosphere. 

We do not have any employees within our church so everyone uses their talents to fulfill the mission of the Lord's church. We don't always wear a suit and tie but sometimes we do, and sometimes our people wear shorts and are comfortable during worship. We still have Sunday school for all ages because we feel this is important for discipleship, and bible training. We love a mixture of old hymns with a touch of newer contemporary songs led by a Praise Team. 

If you are looking for a church where you can feel comfortable, fit in, make new friends, and learn about Jesus then you just might have found your new church home. 

Pastor Brian
