We believe that God has created all peoples for His own glory, and that all peoples have sinned and fallen short of that glory. But God, being rich in mercy and because of His great love, has provided a glorious salvation. Thus, the only means of restoration and redemption to that divine purpose is the gospel of God in Jesus Christ, as sinners repent of sin and believe upon Him. Where a person is created anew by divine life and reconciled to God by Christ, joy in God increases over against the fleeting pleasures of sin. God in Christ comes to reign supreme in even the simplest events of life — eating and drinking. Believers, then, are called to spread a passion for this supremacy of God in all things, knowing that His all-consuming reign through Jesus Christ is the sum of all joy for all God’s people scattered abroad in Newton and beyond.
Our engagement with God in this mission is dependent upon the powerful operation of the Holy Spirit to magnify the infinite splendor of God in Christ in the hearts of His people. Therefore, we exist to magnify the glory of God’s grace in Jesus Christ by proclaiming Him to all peoples for their everlasting joy in God.
We seek to engage with God in our mission in three ways, which you can read about below.
