Our Beginnings

In 1983, GOD called Sidney P. Malone through an audible voice to minister His Word.  By faith, he grabbed the vision, which soon exploded into reality. After seven years of biblical study inspired by the Holy Spirit, Pastor Malone began teaching the life changing principles found in the Word of GOD.

Seven years later, he founded New Growth In Christ Christian Center on August 4, 1990. The ministry formed from a weekly bible study of six college students in an upstairs bedroom of the home of his mother, Evangelist Myrtle Malone. All of them were eager to hear and do GOD’S Word. Since then, the church has held services in several locations. Pastor James Rhodes, allowed us to use his church building on Friday nights for a weekly service. The congregation soon grew again and moved to the home of our Bishop Malone’s grandmother, Evangelist Christine Bell.  

From there, NGIC was blessed to acquire a gymnasium which accommodated us comfortably for a couple of years. On March 10, 1994, NGIC settled into its own home at 2568 Sparks Road, Memphis, TN. NGIC held its first service in November 2004 at our new facility located at 7550 East Shelby Drive, Memphis, TN.  At NGIC we declare that we are a multicultural, international, mega-ministry, fulfilling the plan of GOD throughout the earth. Out of this ministry, leaders and Pastors are being developed to equip GOD’S people, bringing them to full maturity.

NGIC is an anointed, contemporary, cutting edge church on the move where the Spirit of GOD always manifests His glory. As we continue to trust GOD every step of the way, we don’t expect anything less from the Father, but Favor, Increased Grace and Blessings as we follow our visionary, Bishop Sidney P. Malone.
