What We Believe!
Worship: Adoration of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Discipleship: An ever-deepening knowledge of God and His Word
Fellowship: Meaningful relationships with others
Outreach: Serving our community and world in the name of Jesus Christ
As God transforms our lives, we are moved to offer Him all that we are (Worship). Our Worship of Him becomes the source from which Discipleship, Fellowship, and Outreach flow.
Scripture is Our Authority
New Life Missionary Church is committed to the following basic statements of faith that we share with the whole Missionary Church.
There is but one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere-present Triune God. He is one God with three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Matthew 28:19).
God the Father
God the Father is the first Person of the Trinity. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things (John 3:16-17, Colossians 1:15-22).
God the Son is the second Person of the Trinity. He is God incarnate, yet human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all humankind, was bodily resurrected, and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is assuredly coming in power and glory for His believing followers, and He is the only Savior of humanity (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14).
God the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides, and comforts the believers (John 16:7-8, 12-15).
The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and thus authoritative in all matters it addresses (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the penitent, makes him a partaker of divine nature, and gives peace with God. We call this new birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5).
The universal Church is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, its living Head and sovereign Lord (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24, I Corinthians 12:12-13, 27).
We believe that there are two Christian ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34).
