Our church was founded by our senior pastor, Alex Mendoza, in 1996. With a history of planting churches and a passion to see people connect with the love of God, he left his home in Illinois and headed west with a plan to start again in Salem, OR. 
Pastor Alex stayed connected with a local church in the Portland area and once things were in place he and his family moved to Salem to launch what is now New Beginnings. Pastor Alex continues to have a passion for preaching, prayer, and creating a supernatural atmosphere where people can freely connect with God. 
Here at New Beginnings, we welcome all those in our community to come join us in fellowship and worship. We are committed to delivering relevant messages from the word of God with love and hope, serving our community, and seeing individuals grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. We want to be a part of restoring hope and purpose in people’s lives as they start their new beginning with Jesus!
We continue to be a place where everyone is welcome no matter your age or life story!
