New Life’s Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19)


  1. We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts. (2 Tim. 3:15-17;  1 Thess. 2:13;  2 Peter 1:21)


  1. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into Heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory. (Hebrews 1:1-13)


  1. We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, empowering the believer in the exercise of all the gifts as the Holy Spirit wills.  (Terminology of this could be called “The Baptism of the Holy Spirit”, or “Being Filled with the Holy Spirit”)  (Acts 1:5; 2:4)


  1. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith God’s gift of salvation which was made possible by Christ’s death and resurrection.  (Acts 4:12;  Romans 5:8-13;  10:9;  Ephesians 2:8)
