2 Timothy 3:16 "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,"
New Covenant Bible College was originally established as a satellite campus of Covenant Bible College and Seminary in the summer of 2013 by Dr. Nathan Kyle Bailey. Dr. Bailey has worked in Ministerial Academics since 2011. He was a Professor at Covenant Bible College and Seminary until July 2016. Then, in the summer of 2016, Dr. Bailey founded New Covenant Bible College located in Vero Beach, Florida. Dr. Bailey was given a vision for establishing a Bible College that could meet the demands of the modern era while also remaining faithful to the truth and infallibility of God’s Word. As a result, NCBC was established. Dr. Bailey is also serving as the Associate Pastor of Freedom Church in Vero Beach, Florida, as well as a Spiritual Director at Dynamic Life Recovery Center in Fort Pierce, Florida.

GOD “Yahweh,” the God of the Bible is the only true God. He is the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. He has further revealed Himself as a triune Being, revealing Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6: 4; Isa. 43: 10, 11; Isa. 48: 16; Matt. 28: 19; Lu. 3: 22)
The Bible is our exclusive guide for truth and is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. Divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the writings in the original manuscripts and is therefore inerrant. All Scriptures were designed for practical instruction in our everyday living.
Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man, the “Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.” He is the express image of the Living God in human form. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious atonement on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matt. 1: 23; John 1; Jn. 5: 22; II Jn. 3; Heb. 11:1-13)
The Fall of Mankind—Man was originally created with a sinless nature, in the image and likeness of God. The first man, Adam, disobeyed God and, thus, sin and death entered into the world. Adam’s sin incurred not only physical death for man, but also spiritual death which is eternal separation from God. Man’s propensity to sin, because of his sinful nature, necessitates salvation from the power of sin and a Savior to provide that salvation. (Gen. 1: 26, 27; Gen. 2:1-17, 3:4 -6; Rom. 7: 13-25)
God’s Plan of Salvation—We believe in the necessity of new birth (born of the Spirit) for the believer. We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful people through personal repentance, and in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Acts 4: 12; Rom. 5: 8-13, 10: 9; Ja. 1: 21; Eph. 2: 8)
Baptism in Water—Baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. (Matt. 28: 19; Mark 16: 16; Acts 10: 47, 48; Rom. 6: 4; Col. 2: 11, 12)
The Church—The church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all believers. God inhabits the Body of Christ by the Holy Spirit both individually and corporately. The following are the responsibilities of the Church:
1. To be a community of believers in which man may worship and glorify God.
2. To evangelize the world. (Acts 1: 8; Matt. 28: 19, 20; Mark 16: 15, 16; I Cor. 12: 28, 14: 12)
The Lord’s Supper—Holy Communion consists of consuming bread and wine (grape juice) as a church sacrament. It is a sacrament in which God dispenses grace to the participant. The participant in Holy Communion must be a believer. It is a memorial of Jesus’ death until He comes again. (II Pet. 1: 4; I Cor. 11: 26)
The Holy Spirit—The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. The Holy Spirit baptizes, empowers, counsels, strengthens, bestows gifts, and causes fruitfulness in the believer for witnessing on behalf of Christ. Ultimately the Holy Spirit prepares the believer the be a good witness of Christ to others for the purpose of advancing the gospel. We believe in the continuation of all spiritual gifts; the Holy Spirit will disperse spiritual gifts to each member of the church according to His will until the end of the age. Spiritual gifts are to be used in compliance with the various instructions given with the New Testament. (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; John 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17,39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6;Romans 8:9-11,14-16,26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11,13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16;4:1)
The Second Coming of Christ—We believe Jesus is coming again. At that time, there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the wicked. The wicked will be judged and the righteous will be ushered into the everlasting kingdom of God. (I Thess. 4: 16, 17; Zech. 14: 5; Matt. 24: 27-30; Rev. 1: 7, 19: 11-14, 20: 1-6)
