About Jesus Christ
Jesus is the Son of God.
God in the flesh. He was sent to rescue all people. Because of the rescuing forgiveness, love, and grace of Jesus, we pursue personal transformation by knowing Jesus Christ, believing, learning about Him, and learning from Him.
We focus on Jesus.
We love Jesus.
We serve and worship Jesus!
About Our Journey
We all are on a journey… we all come and grow at our own pace; NCF has a goal of encouraging and inspiring everyone to have a personal relationship with God through knowing and loving His Son Jesus Christ.
About “How You Think About God”
Everyone wonders and everyone wanders.
Along the journey of life all of us wonder about why we are who we are and why we are here.
Your ‘best self’ only develops when you think about and know God as He expects you to know Him.
How you think about God is called “Theology” [‘Theo’ = God, ‘ology’ = study of/consideration of…] . Everybody wanders and wonders. Everybody wonders and wanders. But, eventually everybody has to deal with God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
So, no matter your background, where you’ve been or your current situation, New Covenant Fellowship is the place for you to think about, study about, consider, and connect to and know God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit; and by doing so, grow in your faith and become your “best self”… becoming all God designed you to become.

About the Serious Stuff
We are a group of Christians called New Covenant Fellowship who hope to encourage and inspire everyone we know to discover and develop all they can be (“best self”) by knowing who they are in Jesus Christ.
No matter your background or current situation, New Covenant Fellowship is the place for you to connect to God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and grow in your faith. The following are serious considerations that make Christians Christians.
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one entity in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19
God is GREAT: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is GOOD. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and He keeps His promises.
Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.
Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit’s presence is commended by Jesus. The Holy Spirit assures us of our relationship with Jesus. The Holy Spirit guides believers into all truth and He exalts Jesus. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, guides us, counsels us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17
Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15
All people are made in the image of God and we are the supreme object of His creation. We are created to have fellowship with God but we became separated from our relationship with God because of sinful disobedience. As a result, people cannot attain/gain a right relationship with God through our own efforts. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love and can become all God intends by knowing God and believing in His Son, Jesus.
Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11
The spilling of the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ (believing that Jesus was ridiculed, hurt, abused, and killed for us and His pain and suffering was for us so we will not suffer as He did. Jesus suffered, bled, and died for all of our sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20
The Church is a local community of believers gathering together regularly because of mutual/shared faith in and love of Jesus Christ. The church is not a place or a building but people. Each believer is the church. As people who believe in Jesus. We learn and grow to be like Jesus by sharing His grace. We are therefore committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and to obeying all of His precepts (commands), and we seek to bring the good news (Gospel) to everybody in the world. The Church works together in love and cooperation because we want to lift up, praise, worship and glorifying Jesus Christ so everyone can be rescued from their sin and be all God intends them to be.
Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3

About NCF Simplified
The sole basis of our belief is the Bible.
The Scripture in its entirety is composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, which originated with God, and was given through the inspirational instrumentality of many different Holy Spirit chosen authors.
We believe that there is one living, true, holy God, eternally existent in the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus was miraculously conceived, born of a virgin, and sinless in life. Christ was fully man and fully God, walked our earth, lived a life of obedience, suffered at the hands of men, and died on the cross. He fully atoned for the sins of all, was bodily resurrected and enthroned at God’s right hand as our Intercessor.
Salvation is wholly a work of God’s free grace, received by repentance and faith. Each person can be made new in Christ by the Holy Spirit and thereafter continuously grow in the knowledge of God. Adoration and Praise freely flow from all redeemed people!
