The Church of God Newtownards is a bible believing church and our purpose is to spread the good news of the word of God to our neighbourhood and to be active witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ in everything that we do. We share the common faith of Titus 1 verse 4 with every true believer worldwide who are born again through the shedding of the blood of Gods son Jesus Christ. Many people who have come our way regardless of religious background or ethnic origin have found comfort, acceptance and love through the working of Gods Spirit in the church, which is the body of Christ. Our church members are just ordinary people from different backgrounds who have found reality and purpose in the Christian faith and in doing so have a sincere love for God and people. A summary of our beliefs are;
THE HOLY BIBLE
We believe the Holy Bible as being inspired by Almighty God, and that it is recorded for the benefit of all mankind by holy men of God who were inspired by the Holy Ghost. We believe it is the final authority in all matters of faith and human morality.
We believe that there is one God revealed throughout the old and new testaments as the sovereign creator. He is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and his pre Bethlehem existence as the eternal God. That he was manifested in human flesh and born miraculously by virgin birth. We believe in his sinless life, atoning death for sinners, his miraculous ministry, physical resurrection and ascension into heaven, his abiding intercession, and his personal return in power and glory.
We believe that mankind would be forever lost if it were not for the intervention of the Sovereign Grace of God. That his total depravity would render him helpless to save himself through his own human efforts and for this reason Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
We believe that salvation is an act of sovereign grace through faith in the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ alone and that his blood shed at Calvary was given willingly for mankind's redemption. Mankind confirms his salvation by personal testimony as an act of faith. Jesus Christ declares himself to be the only way and means of salvation.
We believe in water baptism by total submersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for repentant sinners.In the regular observance of the Lord s supper. In the anointing of the sick with oil in the name of the Lord for healing.
THE BODY OF CHRIST
We believe that the mystical body of Christ is revealed in the local church. God has placed in the church the expression of his own headship as seen in the five fold ministry of
(Eph 5 v 11 v 13)
THE LOCAL CHURCH
We believe in the autonomy of the local church and that it should be supported by the tithes and offerings of its members. We believe that the local church is the visible expression of the house of God where the royal priesthood of believers offer up spiritual sacrifices to God, (1Pet 2 v 9 ) and inter-church fellowship and co-operation at national and international levels.
We believe that the only hope of every believer rests upon the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory. ( John 14 v 3 ) We believe in eternal life for the believer and also eternal punishment of the unbeliever in the lake of fire which is the second death. (Rev 20 v 12 15 )
We believe that the prophesies of the bible are inspired by the Holy Ghost and through them God has revealed his plan for individuals and nations.
