Who are we?
We believe that the distinctives of Newport Christian Fellowship as we meet together are:
Being Family Together
Everyone is important and is equally valued, and included, and is encouraged to be active in Church life.
Being in the Presence of God
Through extended worship times, prayer, reading God’s word, and a prophetic focus, we look to experience the presence and love of the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit, both when we meet together and in our personal lives.
Being Present in our Community
We look to be active and generous within community life, demonstrating and explaining God’s love and goodness, both within our locality and with our overseas relationships.
We are an independant Christian Fellowship walking with the other Churches in the area, plus we hold ourselves accountable to Pete Gilbert who works with and mentors a number of Churches and Church Leaders within the UK. Further details of Pete can be found on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pete.gilbert.7370

Statement of Faith
The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every
answer to our problems. 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21
There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Holy Spirit. John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7
God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are
poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. Psalm
68:5,6; 1 John 4:16
We are created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus,
we cannot have a relationship with God. Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5
We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God’s free gift to
us all. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned
favour. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial, and
resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God.
Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24
We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for
believers to identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 28:19;
Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to
develop the character of Christ and live every day in God’s power. Matthew 3:11; Acts
God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people
(the Church) and proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the
Spirit are active and relevant today.1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10
Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in
us. Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25
Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer.
Healing includes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual restoration. Luke 9:11;
Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1
Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Saviour to be with Him
for eternity. Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
