We believe in one God,
the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God, begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made; of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; he became incarnate
by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and was made human. He was crucified
for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried. The third day he rose
again, according to the Scriptures. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the
right hand of the Father. He will come again with glory to judge the living and the
dead. His kingdom will never end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life. He proceeds from the Father and the Son, and with the
Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified. He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look forward to the
resurrection of the dead, and to life in the world to come. Amen.
We honor the character of God and aspires to become like Him. We value:
(Philippians 4:6, James 5:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:6, Matthew 6:6)
(Proverbs 11:2, 22:4, Matthew 11:29, Ephesians 4:2, Philippians 2:3-11, 1 Peter 5:5)
(1Corinthians 2:9, Ephesians 1:13, 2:10, 3:20, 2 Peter 1:3)
(John 13:35, 17:20-23, Acts 4:32, 1 Corinthians 1:10, 2 Corinthians 13:11, Galatians 3:28)
(Proverbs 15:22, 27:17, Matthew 5:23-24, 7:3-5, 18:15-17, Luke 17:3, Ephesians 4:25)
Our roots go back to 1952 when a small group of Christians came together to form the Newport Church of Christ. While we have journeyed through many seasons, the Lord has been faithful through each and every one. John Newton’s well known song says it best, “Through many dangers toils and snares I have already come; 'tis Grace that brought me safe thus far and Grace will lead me home.”
In 2010, the church acknowledged a God-ordained shift in focus, and changed our name to Graceway Community Church. We are currently following the Lord into a new season as He leads us deeper, both in the things of God, in community with one another.
