STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in...
The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, that they are entirely trustworthy and of supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct.
The sovereignty of God as revealed in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Creation, Redemption and Final Judgement.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of mankind and the need to be reconciled to God through His Son Jesus Christ, by means of ‘New Birth’.
The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all sufficient ground of Redemption from the guilt and power of sin and its eternal consequences.
The justification of the repentant sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ, who was born of a virgin, crucified for our sins, rose from the dead was, and is, glorified in Heaven.
The present and personal indwelling of the Holy Spirit upon the confession of our sins and faith in Jesus Christ, at which point the believer receives the gift of eternal life, and adoption into God’s family. Also in His present ongoing work of guidance, teaching and impartation of spiritual gifts and ministries.
The ‘Priesthood of all believers’ – the Body of Christ - of which He is the Head, whose purpose in life is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ as Saviour at home and abroad.
The responsibility of all believers to participate in ministry, making no distinction on the grounds of gifts and abilities; helping to build the Church at home and abroad. The distribution of humanitarian aid and the care of the environment.
The Baptism of believers; regular participation in the Sacraments/Communion as instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ; His visible return in great power and glory, to be glorified in all those who look for His return to execute judgement and justice.
The Universal Christian Church and our need to participate with others in the proclamation of the Gospel, worship and prayer.
GROWTH AT NTCC
The life of NTCC continues to thrive, as more people are seeking to join us in fellowship and worship.
The Church has greatly benefitted and grown through the teaching recently received on deepening our relationships with God as our Father, and also the Layman’s Bible School is serving to bring a more in depth understanding of God’s word, and its application to everyday living in the twenty-first century.

Victory Christian Home in Malawi (Charles Trombley Ministries)
NTCC currently support orphans in the Victory Christian Children’s Home, Malawi. It is based in south central Africa, bordered by Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania. It is the world’s fourth poorest nation with a population of 16.36 million.
Like other African nations, it is plagued with AIDS and the horrible aftermath of millions of orphaned children. Life expectancy in this area is 54 years of age and the government estimates that between 17.4% of urban workers will die from AIDS. Poverty is a real problem meaning education is impossible for most . Malawi’s literacy rate is 67.3%.
Many other Christian organisations have benefitted from contributions by NTCC
