Our Story


Known today as a ministry with a strong emphasis on the Word, Worship, and Missions, New Creation began as a prayer group at the home of Alfred and Pearlene Conyers in November of 1984. The Power of God began to move mightily and confirmed the faith of those praying for a spiritual renewal in the city of San Antonio.

Under the leadership of David and Claudette Copeland, who were serving as the first African-American Chaplain couple in the U.S. military, we were officially incorporated in the state of Texas on March 5, 1985.

Our first public meeting was held at the (then) Wyatt’s Cafeteria, Loop 410 and Nacogdoches on April 25, 1985 and continued as midweek services. NCCF began holding Sunday morning worship services at what was the La Mansion del Norte (Loop 410) in September 1985. We moved to 12525 Nacogdoches in October of that same year.

The business affairs of the church were conducted by the organizing board until the Copeland’s were released from the military chaplaincy to assume the Pastorate of NCCF on September 1, 1985.

The congregation grew for 15 years at the Nacogdoches Road location. On January 2000, under the progressive leadership of our Pastors, we acquired our 2,500 seat Cathedral located at 8700 Fourwinds Drive in Windcrest, TX, where we worship today.
