Who We Are
New Testament would be described as a confessionally Reformed Baptist church. We subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of 1677/1689 as our doctrine for teaching and the New Hampshire Baptist Confession of 1833 as our membership statement.
New Testament Baptist Church organized in 1994 but relaunched in August 2011 on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Since that time, the church has grown spiritually through verse-by-verse expositional preaching, doctrinal studies, and increased church fellowship. Our elders are committed to the inerrancy and sufficiency of the Scripture, the rich doctrines of grace, historical Baptist confessionalism, and Christ-centered preaching. Since the relaunching of the church, NTBC has moved to a plurality of elders, adopted a church confession or statement of faith, and witnessed the Lord build a local church comprised of men and women from different backgrounds and walks of life. All of this is a testimony to the sovereign grace of Christ in building His church for His glory.
You might ask what does it mean to be Reformed? Baptist? Calvinistic? Confessional? Covenantal? Consider some of these articles and sermons as guides to explain further who we are.
