New Antioch Christian Fellowship
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habbakkuk 2:3
New Antioch Christian Fellowship:
WHAT WE BELIEVE...
God has continuously blessed NACF Ministries with wonderful, faithful members who understand the mission and purpose of this ministry: PRAISE, PRAY, and PREACH. We believe in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We believe what God said in His Word, and that is what He meant. We believe that Jesus is soon to come again. We believe that serving God doesn’t take rocket science, just the faith of a little child. We live the Great Commission: Go ye therefore and preach and teach… We have regularly ministered to the needs of the communities that God literally placed us in - in word and deed. Jesus indeed said to “…draw them with love and kindness…”
Since our inception we have met with many trials and tribulations, but God has promised that our Latter would be Greater than the Rest because the Best is Yet to Come!
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
THE VISION ...
The Vision for New Antioch Christian Fellowship was given to Pastor Kieron Buford while still a member of the A.M.E. Zion Church in Mobile, Alabama. When released from their home church after it disbanded, Pastor Kieron and Pastor Kimberly began holding services on Sunday, January 1, 2005 as Christian Fellowship. Christian Fellowship began humbly enough in the living room of the Buford home with the members of the Buford household.
Soon, more and more began to fellowship with them. The name given to Pastor Kieron from God was New Antioch Christian Fellowship - New (walk in the newness of life), Antioch (and the disciples were called Christians first at Antioch) Christian (Christ-like) Fellowship (forsake not the fellowship or the assembling of yourselves together).
NACF transitioned from the living room, to the Quality Inn Motel, to the location at 351 N. Ann Street in the Mobile, Alabama community called the Campground.
In 2010, God called the Bufords to Virginia with the vision to plant yet another ministry in the DMV. In June 2013, NACF of Stafford was established, again in the living room of the Buford home. The vision came to fruition as the New Antioch Christian Fellowship of Stafford, housed at the Best Western Aquia Quantico, then the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott in Stafford. In 2018, God elevated the ministry to our own facility at 13111 Telegraph Road in Woodbridge, VA! And it is of a truth that the Best is Yet to Come!
