What We Believe PDF Print E-mail

New Life is a church striving to become a 21st Century Apostolic Church and is a Bible-based church. We're Bible-based in that we seek to base all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible or on biblical principles. We are founded upon the following beliefs…

We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17 ).

We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion (Matthew 25 &Matthew 28 ).

We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).  Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Ephesians 4:4-6 ; Colossians 2:9 ; 1 Timothy 3:16 ).

We believe in repentance and forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 6:14 ; Matthew 9:6 & 13; Luke 24:47 ; Acts 3:19 ; Acts 13:38 ; 2 Corinthians 7:10 ; Ephesians 1:7 ; Colossians 1:14 )

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38 ; Acts 10:48 ; Acts 19:5 ; Romans 6:3-6 ; Colossians 2:11-14 )

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4 ; Acts 10:45 & 46; Acts 19:6 )

We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18 ; Acts 5:16 ; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11 )
