Our Beliefs and Who We Are

Our Beliefs:

We, the New Reformation Team, are in agreement with and support the Apostles Creed: 

“I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.”

We, the New Reformation Team, are in agreement with and support the Nicene Creed: 

“I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.  God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made.  For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.  For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic (universal) and apostolic Church.  I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

Background on the New Reformation Team:

We abide by this motto “Preach the gospel, die, be forgotten” - Nikolaus Zinzendorf.   With that in mind, we do not consider this to be “our” ministry.  We work on it with the confidence that it is the Lord’s Word, the Lord’s work, and He will guide and prosper it as He sees fit.  It is not important who we are.

We refer to ourselves as “the Team”.  If you wish to contact us we may be reached at newreformation@yahoo.com.

We, on our Team, are old, chronologically.  Unless the Lord returns, we will all soon be departing from our earthly bodies.  We will be experiencing the joy and peace of being in the presence of our Savior – but our opportunity to get the New Reformation started will have passed.  Help us, therefore, to move on this New Reformation quickly and to strive to not get bogged down in the pettiness of our sinful nature.  

It is for us on the Team to strive to be humble and to remember that, from start to finish, it is the Lord’s Word and this is the Lord’s Work.
