"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15
What is our mission ~ Our mission is to lift up the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ and share Him with everyone. Our only source of authority is the New Testament (Acts 2 through Revelation 22). Not only are we determined to follow the New Testament pattern for the organization, work, and worship of the church, we are commanded to do so (1 Timothy 4:16 & Titus 2:1). We want to be able to show book, chapter, and verse for all of our practices.
What we believe~ We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that He came to earth as the Messiah for the Jews only (Matthew 1:21) to fulfill the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (Luke 24:44). Jesus lived a perfect life as God and man. All mankind is sinful and falls short of God's glory. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by following Jesus Christ and His New Covenant can we be assured of salvation. We believe that baptism (through water immersion) is absolutely required for salvation in the blood of Christ. It is through His death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 - the one Gospel) that we can claim eternal life, freedom from sin, and have access to God and a new life (Romans 6:4). We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We gather on the first day of each week (Sunday) for the purpose of honoring God through Jesus Christ with song (a Capella), prayers, teaching, and partaking in the Lord's Supper.

New Covenant Truth's Featured Question/Answer of the Week
Is the "church" a building?
Even though many will find the answer to this question difficult, if not impossible to believe, the answer is an emphatic no! In fact, most everyone outside the church thinks of the church as a building. This cannot be further from the truth, and if anyone tells you differently, it is a false doctrine! I can prove through Scripture that the church is not a building. God states that the church is the body of Christ, of which He is the head.
What we are not~ We are not part of any denomination or organized religious group. In other words, we are neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jew. We are simply Christians. In addition, we are not affiliated with churches of Christ that are based on the Stone-Campbell movement (also known as the Restoration Movement) nor do we use the slogan, "We speak where the Bible speaks and we are silent where the Bible is silent." While that may seem impossible, it is absolutely true. Think about it. When Jesus sent out His Apostles to preach the Gospel and to establish His church (Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 20, 21, and Acts 1), did they establish 12 different churches with 12 different doctrines or did they establish one church teaching one doctrine? Of course the answer is one church teaching one doctrine. Again, we are not descendants of the Stone-Campbell movement; rather, we are members of the church that Jesus declared He would build (Matthew 16:18) and purchased with His blood (Acts 20:28).
