What We Believe
We are a group of believers who love the Lord and seek only to do His will. We have no creed, but Christ.
We find the Bible to be sufficient, since it is literally God-breathed.
We seek to simply be the church that we find in the New Testament.
We are not the only Christians, but we are Christians, only.
Simple, New Testament Christianity
The Newburgh church of Christ is an independent congregation of Christians trying to follow Jesus Christ according to the New Testament. We have no church authority beyond the Bible. Our leaders are chosen from the congregation according to the qualifications found in Scripture. We believe that all Christians are members of the one body of Christ and that we can be united spiritually if we return to biblical teachings. Our goal is to be Christians only while recognizing that we are not the only Christians. Our faith and worship are drawn from our understanding of the New Testament. We meet together on Sundays to remember Jesus in the Lord's Supper, pray, sing, and hear a message from the Bible. Our commitment to two practices of the first century church distinguishes us from some groups of believers today: a cappella singing in worship and adult immersion in water for the forgiveness of sins as a believer's response to the gracious work of God.
We consider ourselves a part of a larger fellowship of New Testament congregations growing out of the Restoration Movement in the US in the 1800's. Like others in this movement we seek to "Speak where the Bible speaks; remain silent where the Bible is silent," and practice "In matters of faith, unity; in matters of opinion, liberty; and in all things, charity."
The Newburgh church of Christ first met as a congregation in the early 1990s at Camp Brosend in Newburgh then later purchased and renovated a former restaurant at the current location - 5111 S. Plaza Dr. in Newburgh (two blocks east of SR261 off Robin Hill Rd.).
