New Level Church Launches Church Planting

An Example of the FG Global Church Plant and Water Initiative

Reported by Lead Pastor Ronnie Tejada – New Level Church

New Level Church Philippines (NLC PH) was born and received her legal entity from Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last February 8, 2022.
