New Life Christian Church's history spans nearly 200 years, marking it as one of the oldest worshipping communities in Jefferson County.
First formed in Depauville in the early 1800s, the church met on land donated by Francis Depau in a building constructed out of stone harvested from nearby Grindstone Island in St. Lawrence River.
But the church would eventually set its sights on moving toward the Black River as record attendance caused the leadership to consider a venue change.
By 2008, the church officially moved to its present home in the renovated movie theatre in Watertown, NY.
New Life also opened its Carthage Campus in 2017 to better serve families of eastern Jefferson and western Lewis counties.
New Life Christian Church continues to grow, broadening the scope of its outreach as it serves northern New York for Jesus Christ in fulfilling the Great Commission.
