Newfrontiers - Together on a mission
What is the Newfrontiers movement...
Newfrontiers is a worldwide family of churches together on a mission, currently approaching 800+ churches worldwide, 250 of which are in the UK. With a passionate commitment to build the church according to New Testament principles, we believe that strong local churches are to be a blessing to towns, cities and communities across our nation. Churches where each member participates, the gifts of the Spirit are outworked, where there is joy in caring one for the other, where there is a desire to make a difference in society and to reach those in need.
The Body of Christ
God's ultimate purpose is that the church should become a 'mature man' (Eph. 4:13), a body with all it's members functioning. In Ephesians 4 Paul describes how God has purposed for this to be accomplished through the gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, and pastors and teachers.
Our desire is to see churches that are built on New Testament principles through receiving these Ephesians 4 ministries, where the word of God is honoured, and there is openness to the work of the Holy Spirit. We believe in a restored church and embrace Haggai's promise that 'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former.' (Hag 2:9)
Jesus calls us to 'go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything he has commanded' (Matt. 28:19-20). Our response to this great commission must therefore be reflected at the very heart of church life. Churches work this out in a number of ways, often through small groups, whose aim is to grow through reaching out to unbelievers. Having believed, people need to be baptised in water and in the Holy Spirit, in order to live by the power of the Spirit.
Maturity in Christ
Making disciples also means bringing individuals to maturity in Christ in order that each one can fulfill God's plan for their lives. Our desire is that believers enjoy the grace of God, understanding that salvation is a gift that cannot be earned.
We want people to know that God has forgiven and accepted them solely because of what Jesus has done for them on the cross i.e. people who are certain of eternal life, getting to know Jesus better every day, experiencing His guidance, living for His glory, enjoying their involvement in His church and keen to reach out to others with the good news of the Gospel.
