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
