New Covenant Church is a church-plant in Sunizona, AZ with the intent of reaching the Sulfur Springs Valley with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The New Covenant is the covenant Jesus instituted in fulfillment of the Old Covenant. The Old Covenant showed that people could not keep God’s Law and fell short of His glory. Instead of destroying the world, God keeps His promises to Noah, Abraham, and all the Old Testament saints in the Christian covenant. Christ came to renew the world rather than destroy it (John 3:17). He does so despite human sin. This is the essence of the New Covenant.
There are plenty of churches to choose from in the Sulfur Springs Valley. Our desire is not to compete with but compliment others. When one local church does well, the others should too. New Covenant Church has 3 distinctions:
Our confession is the 1689 London Baptist Confession. You do not have to agree with the confession on all points to join us in our gatherings, but basic agreement with the confession is necessary for membership.
Plurality of Elders
We do not have a senior or lead pastor. We have a body of elders who lead the congregation and keep one-another accountable. Such polity keeps any of our pastors from becoming over-burdened and builds a system that utilizes the spiritual gifts of each one rather than raising anyone up on a pedestal.
Lectio Continua, Expository Teaching
Simply put, we want God’s words and not a mere man’s. Our standard is the reading, explanation, and application of Scripture in its context so we might know the deep things of what God has revealed in His written word.
