From a house fellowship that originally started in the home of Pastor Joshua Jama and his wife Toyin in 1989 whilst attending Kensington Temple (an Elim Pentecostal Church) in London, this church was born.
With the growing number, the church was started officially in Hackney, East London in August 1991 along with a counselling and advisory centre to reach out to the homeless, unemployed and needy people of that area – thus the name Sanctuary Church.
In 1996, to cater for the growing needs of the church, a two-story building was acquired at Bethnal Green, London and the name was later changed to Good News Assembly in September 1998. However in June 2006, by the decision of the church council, the name was changed to New Life Bible Church.
In March 1999, the founder Rev. Joshua Jama (Senior Pastor of Good News Assembly), and his family relocated to Houston, Texas, USA to start a fresh work by the leading of the Lord. The Elim headquarters then gave Pastor Richard Jama the mandate to take over as the Pastor-in-charge.
The Lord has always been good to us over the years as you will come to see.
