New Life started in 1985 in several church member's living rooms. Then later grew to a location on Sanatorium Rd. In 2001 Brother Gary Phillips became Pastor of the church and joined with NLF's passion for the community. Later in 2007 the church started New Life Christian Academy as a way to create a place of refuge for children in a world of temptations, and help our parents "train up a child in the way they should go". Then later in 2012 under the covering of Parkersburg Bible College NLF started Magee Bible College offering a way to incorporate your faith into your career.
