About Us

Our Story

New Light was founded Monday, July 20, 1987 by Bishop Sim McEachern and his wife, Mother Doris McEachern.

Our founders had a strong conviction that The Book of Acts is the rule and not the exception as to what The Church is supposed to be.
We were under Bishop McEachern’s leadership for 8 years before the Lord called him home on May 31st, 1996. The baton was then passed to Mother McEachern, a true prayer warrior and woman of faith. She pastored New Light for 17 years. Through the guidance of The Holy Spirit, the baton was passed once again.
In August of 2013 Elder Victor McEachern, the son of Bishop and Mother was installed as the pastor. Pastor Victor is following in the footsteps of his parents. He knows he has been appointed in such a time as this to continue the work God began so many years ago. On March 31,2015 The Lord called Mother home. She departed this life with these words ringing in our ears, “You haven’t seen anything yet!”

Our beliefs

Reach, Teach, Serve

Reach the lost for Christ through personal and public evangelism. We believe Salvation is by Faith alone!!!

Teach the believer to “walk worthy of the vocation wherewith they have been called” Ephesians 4:1. We encourage spiritual growth through “Next Steps” For example, Water Baptism, Baptism of The Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts inventory and activation etc.

Serve The Lord with all of our hearts in the beauty of holiness. We understand our role as The Bride of Christ is to be ever awaiting the midnight cry, “The Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!” Matthew 25:6
