From the beginning of my ministry, it has been my conviction that teaching and preaching what God says in His Word is more important than making people feel good about themselves. I BELIEVE the Bible is the authority in every aspect of our life.  As Pastor of New Life Baptist Church, I want those who attend to hear the truth of the Word of God.  It is my responsibility to Study the Word and to Share the Word as accurately as I possibly can.  As Pastor I must do this as truthfully and lovingly as I am directed by God.

   I love what God has done in the life of New Life Baptist Church through the years.  Many Churches have sprung up and died away but God has kept New Life alive and strong.  I believe that God has much more to be accomplished through New Life in this area.  I believe that we as a Church can do great thing if we will let God lead.

   I want those who attend New Life to know that they are loved by me as Pastor and those of the membership.

It is and will always be my prayer that people of all walks of life will feel welcomed and loved.

   If you need me I expect you to call me that I may be able to minister to you the best I can.  


Pastor Tony Lineberger Bio.

We surrendered to the Gospel Ministry in 1972. After graduating from Seminary we accepted our first pastorate in Arizona. We served 3 churches in Arizona the last being New Life Baptist in Phoenix.  We started New Life in our home with the help of the Home Mission Board, now     North American Mission Board  (NAMB ) and served there for 20 years. When we started NLBC our 2 children, Julie & Jared were 4 & 7.  We returned to South Carolina to assist with our aging parents and served 12 years in two Churches in the York Baptist Association.

We were privileged to come back home to Phoenix and New Life Baptist Church.  I began again pastoring at NLBC on April 2, 2017.  Hopefully until Jesus returns.

As we start again we now have 5 grandchildren to love and spoil.


My education began in York SC. Where I grew up.  I graduated York High School.  I earned an Associate Degree in Drafting and Design at York Tec. in Rock Hill, SC.    I graduated from Gardner Webb Collage with a BA degree in Religious Studies.  We moved to Memphis Tenn.  where I received a Masters of Divinity Degree from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary.  I believe and preach the Bible.

I have a Chalk Art Ministry which I have done for 45 years in various Churches.  This ministry utilizes chalk and special light to illustrate the Gospel message.
