George M. Matthews, II is Senior Pastor and Founder of New Life Interfaith Ministries, Inc., Bessemer, Alabama; He is ordained, licensed, and has pastored churches in the Pentecostal and Baptist denominations. Pastor Matthews received a charge and commission from the Lord to begin instructing and building up the Body of Christ in the area of “the unity of the Faith,” that unity which exists corporately in Christ. Pastor Matthews believes the Kingdom of God on Earth is comprised of a conglomeration of all Christian faiths, and for this purpose, the Church should emphasize its commonality in the Lord, rather than the lesser areas of doctrinal differences. The scope of this “interfaith” ministry is to develop believers in the area of our likenesses in Christ, irrespective of our denominational differences.
New Life Interfaith Ministries and Calvary Resurrection Christian Church are members of Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association (CDMA) under the direction of Dr. Creflo Dollar, Senior Pastor, World Changers Church International, College Park, Georgia. In June 1997, Pastor Matthews was appointed to a position on the Board of Directors of the International Covenant Ministries, which later evolved into and functions under the banner of Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association, which operates from and has its executive offices in College Park, Georgia. The purpose of this entity is to provide a ministerial covering for many, regardless of denominational affiliations.
