New Port Presbyterian Church pursues:
• the worship of the one true God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as taught in the Scriptures
• the nurture of the body of Christ through discipleship, fellowship, the study of the Scriptures,
the right use of the sacraments
• the spread of the Gospel locally and internationally
• the exercise of mercy ministry.
We are committed to the Scriptures, preserved in the Old and New Testaments of the
Bible, as the revealed Word of God, inspired, inerrant, infallible, the only rule of faith and
life in all its aspects: family, social, civil, and judicial.
We believe the Scriptures are best understood and applied covenantally, that is, they
display God's faithfulness to His covenant promises.
We are committed to the sanctity of all human life created in God's image, and seek ways
to promote this commitment in our region.
Our mission is best stated by Jesus Himself, who said, "A new commandment I give you,
that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By
this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
New Port Presbyterian Church has long been a center for worship in the community. The
church was organized on January 7th, 1844 as a member congregation of the
Presbyterian Church U.S. (Southern Presbyterian Church) and of the Old School,
requiring that its ministers be educated overseas rather than in the United States. New
Port is quite possibly the oldest church in Franklin County that has never moved or
closed its doors. The main sanctuary was built in 1854, with bricks fired on the church
grounds. In 1992, the congregation added a fellowship hall and remodeled the main
preparing to merge with its sister denomination, the Presbyterian Church of the United
States of America (P.C.U.S.A.). The congregation strongly disagreed with the P.C.U.S.A.
teaching concerning abortion and felt the P.C.U.S.A. did not teach the Bible as God's
Word. The membership voted unanimously to withdraw from the P.C.U.S., and, later that
year, joined the Presbyterian Church in America (P.C.A.) The P.C.A. was begun by
churches who withdrew from the P.C.U.S. for the same reasons. We are a small, friendly,
Bible-believing church and invite you to come worship with us and see for yourself.
