We go back to the future as we follow the trail blazed for us by the New Testament church. In researching the practice of the early church, our mindset is both "Back to the Bible" and "Onward with the Spirit"!

Our desire is to honor the Lord by patterning our churches after the timeless traditions left by His chosen Apostles. A tremendous blessing awaits today’s Christians in early church practice.


For over twenty years, the New Testament Reformation Fellowship has been part of a growing body of believers who see importance in following New Testament patterns of church practice. We have taken to heart the evangelical belief that the Bible is our final authority, not only in matters of faith, but also in what we do as God's people when we gather together. We see theological significance in the distinctive traditions of the apostolic church.
