Charles & Nancy

  Charles & Nancy Newbold

I was an ordained minister, seminary graduate, and pastored for twelve years before falling away to become a professed atheist due to the deceitfulness of sin and my liberal seminary education. My wife, Nancy, and I married in 1970—a second marriage for both of us. Having never seen a miracle and looking up to significant people in her life who did not believe the Bible, Nancy questioned that God existed.

We were involved in some short-lived occult practices when the Holy Spirit got our attention. We were radically converted on April 4, 1978, set free from many demonic spirits, and baptized in the Holy Spirit.

The Lord planted us in a glorious home group of believers in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, where we were nurtured by the love, teachings, and ministry of Spirit-filled, Spirit-led believers. A few years later, the Lord led us to return to the denominational church we originally came out of, mostly to find forgiveness for the wrongs I had inflicted upon many due to the deceitfulness of sin in my life. We later were part of other churches as we sought fellowship and tried to satisfy that need to be connected

The Lord began to show me early on that there was this THING we call church that was not the church. The revelation I received and the experiences we had in these various church groups led to writing the book The Harlot Church System.

We ultimately yielded to the call to leave these structures of man-made traditions altogether. We have always been drawn to the idea of gathering in home fellowships like they did in the New Testament, but most of our fellowship has been spontaneously appointed here and there by the Lord, getting with people locally and broadly. We have rich fellowship and abiding Kingdom relationships with many precious believers to whom we are mutually yielded.

Throughout this span of more than thirty years, the Lord inspired several other books and numerous writings.

My wife and I live in Knoxville, Tennessee, where we continue the writing ministry and enjoy the love of family and others who are in our knit-work of Kingdom relationships.
We are blessed!

About Charles's Writings

Charles has published nine books to date. The Crucified Ones intends to call forth a people to walk in radical obedience in preparation for the Lord's coming. In Search of Dad is a book that intends to call forth that supernatural, transcending power that flows from Father-God, enabling men to be godly fathers to their families. His Presence in the Midst of You, written in first person from God's perspective, is a book that intends to call forth a sanctified people to carry the ark of the Lord's Presence into the world around them. The Harlot Church System exposes how we have made idols of self-worship out of these things we call "church" and echoes God's call to His remnant to "Come out of her My people." The Transcendent Seed of Abraham: A People for Yahveh illustrates how Yeshua (Jesus) fulfilled Yahveh's (God's name) promise to Himself to have a people for Himself. Stepping into the Circle of all the pertains to the Kingdom of God calls us to live our lives out from within the Kingdom of God. Streams that Make Glad is a collection of pastoral articles that were originally published in Validity Magazine, Hohenwald, Tennessee. Sayings is a collection of notes that I have written from over thirty five years. Sequestered in the Jury Room of the Human Heart is a thematic study of the Gospel of John.

Charles also has a collection of articles and video interviews available for viewing in the Library.
