The Newburg First Church of God is affiliated with a denomination known as the Churches of God General Conference. This can be somewhat confusing, since more than 150 denominations use “Church of God” somewhere in their name. The Churches of God, General Conference is an almost 200-year-old association of Christian churches headquartered in Findlay, Ohio. The denomination has a strong commitment to the Bible as the Word of God, to salvation through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to other central truths of the Christian faith, and to cross-cultural missions. Perhaps the best way to describe the church is to say that it is right in the mainstream of historic Christianity. You won’t hear any radical new teaching at Newburg, but you will hear the truths of God’s Word communicated clearly and concisely in a style that makes sense.
While the Newburg First Church of God is part of a denomination, practically speaking it is an inter-denominational fellowship. The people who attend come from a rainbow of religious backgrounds. Together we are all trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus today. You will find people both young and old seeking to better understand their faith.
At the Newburg First Church of God we want to help improve the quality of your life. Our desire as a church is to offer any assistance we can toward your personal and spiritual growth. We talk a lot about working out the practical matters of following Christ in the midst of our day to day routine. At our church a great deal of time and effort is put into trying to translate church language and concepts into everyday language. Tradition and ritual are examined carefully to see that everything we do makes sense to everyone in attendance.
