In May of 1999, New Beginnings began in Pastor Rory and Char Cobbs’ hearts and living room. Soon it grew into the garage and stretched out under an awning over the driveway. Needing space, a store front was rented at 23rd and Jefferson Streets in Olde Towne Bellevue.
For three months people volunteered to renovate the space working after their fulltime day jobs and weekends. It was definitely an extreme makeover. Walls were removed, new wiring, plumbing, flooring, drywall, paint and cleanup around the outside made the building ready for services by September 1999.
By 2001, more space was acquired and a new sanctuary was created to facilitate the growth.
The old sanctuary became the fellowship hall. In 2004 another part of the building was leased to expand the sanctuary and add another classroom/prayer room. Just as the buildings continued to be renovated, the same was happening with lives spiritually. In 2012 the entire facility was purchased making room for a growing youth ministry, Collision, led by Pastor R.J. Cobbs, Jr. as well as much needed office space and three industrial bays that would be used in community involvement now known as "Bellevue Together" .
