Who We Are

OUR PURPOSE

We seek to help people to trust God, be transformed, and build others.

We share the Good News of freedom in Jesus Christ with the people that we know. Our church provides many opportunities for all ages.  We also  have T-Groups (Transformation groups)  where we study the Bible, pray for each other, take responsibility for our own spiritual growth and encourage lasting friendships.

 

OUR HISTORY AND AFFILIATION

New Covenant was founded as a result of concerned Christians meeting for Bible Study in 1982. The church started meeting in the Grange on Coy Street in 1984. The new church building opened in October 2000 at its present location in Hopewell.

 

We are affiliated with the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, the Southern Baptist Convention.

 

WE BELIEVE

SCRIPTURES

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.

GOD

There is one and only one living and true God. God is infinite in holiness. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence and obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

GOD THE SON

Christ is the eternal Son of God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary. In His death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

SALVATION

Salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.

BAPTISM

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of old life, and the resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Christ Jesus.

THE LORD’S SUPPER

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through by partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
