Who We Are

Vision is not about reality or what is. Vision is all about our dreams and inspirations of what could be. At New Beginnings Church, we share the Good News of Jesus Christ's Death and Resurrection in contemporary and creative ways with thousands of unchurched friends, family and people in the metropolitan area, many of whom accept Him as Savior. At New Beginnings, we strive to develop all people, new believers as well as established believers into fully functioning followers of Jesus Christ through people-friendly worship services, Christian Education, special events and small groups.

We are a church that models a community: a safe place where we accept one another and are accepted, love and are loved, encourage and are encouraged, forgive and are forgiven, serve and are served, seeking prayer and offering prayer. We are a church that helps all people, youth as well as adults to discover their purpose so that they are equipped to effectively serve Christ in ministry either within or outside our church.

Our goal is that every member be a committed follower of Christ. We are a church that believes in foreign missions and have ministered in Africa, Venezuela and Japan. It's our goal that every member pursues short-term mission services in various other countries as well. We are a church that believes in church-planting; our first church plant opens in Atlanta, GA, October, 2010 with others to follow every two years.

The ministry of New Beginnings is sustained by a 46,000 sq. ft. state-of-the art facility capable of accommodating our growth and is accessible to all the study groups, prayer, fellowship, music endeavors, youth activities, recreation and other meetings. We seek to grow as God prospers us and uses us to reach a lost and dying world. This is our Dream, this is our Vision, this is New Beginnings!

A pastor, businessman, philanthropist, songwriter, mentor and spiritual coach, Pastor Corey B Brooks Sr. answered his call to the ministry at the age of 19 and received his first pastorship at the age of 23 at Mt. Moriah Church in Richmond, Indiana, leaving there to pastor West Point church in Chicago until he was called to plant a new church! In November of 2000, Pastor Brooks founded New Beginnings Church of Chicago, an urban, non-denominational Purpose Driven Church in the inner city on Chicago’s south side. A visionary leader who is prolific in expository life-application preaching, Pastor Brooks’ simple yet profound messages of restoration and reconciliation have attracted over 2500 members. Worshipping in a facility that houses a private Christian school (K-8th), state of the art music/dance studio and a fitness center, Pastor Brooks has become a millennium catalyst for social, spiritual and economic voids in Urban America. With a vision to “Change people from Chicago, America and the World,” Pastor Brooks plans to plant one hundred churches over the next ten years and has already planted churches in Atlanta, GA. and Cape Town, South Africa. A pastor to pastors, Pastor Brooks has ministered internationally in Asia, Africa, and South America; he is frequently called upon to teach church planting strategies, leadership and urban ministry development locally and nationally. Because of his success in urban ministry development, he has been deemed a “Hoodologist.” He has authored two books, “HOODology” (release date May, 2012) and “Committed” (release date November, 2012). The International Bible Society recognized Pastor Brooks for successfully leading New Beginnings Church in a community outreach effort to spread the gospel by passing out over 50,000 bibles, with a goal of 1,000,000, to date over 100,000 have been distributed. Pastor Corey B Brooks Sr. is a graduate of Ball State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and pledged Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. From Ball State, he began his theological education by attending the Dallas Theological Seminary before earning a Master of Arts in Ministry, with an emphasis on Preaching and Christian Education, at Grace Theological Seminary. A devoted husband, Pastor Brooks is married to Delilah Brooks; they are the proud parents of four children: Kirsten, Desmond, Danielle and Corey Jr. Pastor Brooks accepted the 2012 Steve Harvey "Neighborhood Award" (formally known as the Hoodie Award) for Best Community Leader on August 4, 2012.
