Refreshing Lives Church refreshes souls through the God experience.


We continue to create champions and changes in the community through Christ Jesus.


In 2005, Pastors Ronald and Angela Scott began Born Again Ministries (affectionately known as BAM) with a core of 10 people. The ministry, had humble beginnings at the Riverfront Convention Center; until it moved to 1725 Red Robin Lane in October 2005. In November 2009, Born Again Ministries launched a 2nd location in Havelock N.C, Here, the ministry continued to grow serving the military community as well as civilians living in the Havelock/Newport community.

In 2010 Born Again Ministries, became Refreshing Lives @ Born Again Ministries (Refreshing Lives). The name spoke to and continues to speak to the experiences of the people as a result of attending just one service – refreshing! July, 2011 Refreshing Lives purchased three buildings totaling 18,000 square feet of space at 212 Kale Road, the current location.

This property is just 12 minutes from the former New Bern location and 14 minutes from the former Havelock location. Now both locations are worshiping together as one.
