NEW COVENANT BAPTIST FELLOWSHIP
THEODOULOS CHURCH PLANTING
We find ourselves truly humbled and blessed of God to be able to participate in the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Doctrinally, we identify with the 1st London Baptist Confession 1646 a historical confession of the truths of Scripture that emphasize the uniqueness of the New Covenant and the Christ centered theology of the New Testament that emphasizes that salvation is and always was, a work of a Sovereign God by grace through the work of Jesus Christ for both Old and New Covenant believers. Our doctrine goes beyond the confession but keeps the spirit of the newness of the New Covenant especially in teaching that Christ is, in His incarnation, the New Covenant of Isaiah 42:6, 49:6-8, 55:3-4, John 1:14 and all that relates to that fundamental truth including: Jeremiah 31:33 (ESV) 33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
We believe this is indicative of the promise of the Holy Spirit in the New Covenant era when the Lord has one new people of God, Jew and Gentile, as His body, the church and that He is now the true Israel according to John 15 and we, the one new people are his branches.
We look to the priority of Jesus Christ in all things and believe that the clearest approach to understanding Scripture is through the logical priority of the New Testament. This means we look to all of Scripture for it’s meaning first through the lens of the New Testament because it is the fulfillment of all of what the Old Testament Scripture pointed to – and that is – the Glory of God with the priority of the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Our primary work is in partnership with Pastor Ernie Daasin and all of our church planters are indigenous men and families. We provide financial support for the pastor’s and we do the same for three – four weeks of pastor conferences each year, where we participate in the teaching and training.
Please pray for us as we are seeking to purchase a small farm/plantation that can help the ministry become self-sufficient as far as supporting our pastors and their families.
We have sold our two church buildings over the past three years and have committed the funds to the work in the Philippines.
