At Newport, there are two beliefs that are the most important to us:

We believe in Jesus and want to follow him

We trust the Bible as God’s Word to guide us

 

That’s it — and that’s enough.

 

As an Evangelical Covenant Church, we affirm that there are six things that naturally flow out of those beliefs:

 

We affirm the centrality of the Word of God

We affirm the necessity of the new birth

We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church

We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers

We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit

We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ
