What We Believe New Life Christian Fellowship is a family of believers who believe that the Kingdom of God is a non-judgmental society that speaks dignity and esteem to every person that we meet. Jesus accepts you right where you are and so do we. You do not have to pass a religious exam to be welcome here. Jesus accepts us right where we are and loves us there. We have no right to be any other way.
Mission Statement New Life Christian Fellowship is a family of Christian believers who exist to create vacancies in hell by accepting and sharing the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and who bring heaven to earth by being equipped with the Kingdom principles that produce victorious, Godly lifestyles and a safe place to grow secure relationships.
The Scriptures Inspired This assembly accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity.
The Bible is the inspired word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (1 Cor. 2:9-16; 2 Tim 3:15-17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25, Heb. 4:12).
One True God The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I Am." This one true God is revealed to us through Scripture in three persons as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Christ's earthy mission and multifaceted revelation must never be confused with His divine position (Deut. 6:4, Mk. 12:29; Is. 43:10; Matt. 1:23; Col. 1:18, 19; Jn. 2:19).
Man - His Fall and Redemption Man was created good and upright, for God said, "let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21).
The Salvation of Man (A) The grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace through faith, he becomes an heir of God (Titus 2:11, Rom. 8:14-17). (B) The evidence of the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). This witness accompanies the obedience of Romans 10:9-10.
Baptism in Water The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures, by all who have repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in the newness of life (Matt. 28:10; Acts 10:47-48; Rom. 6:4)
The Lord's Supper The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements bread and wine, is the symbol expressing our sharing in the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, a memorial of His suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined on all believers. "...until He comes" (John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke 22:19, 20; 1 Cor. 11:26).
The Fruit of the Spirit The fruit of the Spirit as outlined in Galatians 5:22 is an overflow of the characteristics of Jesus designed to be evidenced as we daily and continually die to the Adamic nature that overflows out of our fleshly nature. The fruit of the Spirit in one's life is a true sign of spiritual maturity. The evidence of the fruit of the Spirit in a believer is the thermometer of the Spirit-filled life.
The Gifts of the Spirit The charisma gifts of the New Testament (Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-11) are operational and functional and are for every believer today. Every believer is endued with the Holy Spirit at salvation, and each gift overflows out of the believer's life as faith arises to allow the gifts to operate. All believers will not have the same gift but must overflow with their particular gift for the glory of God and the edifying of the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:4-11, 27-31). Every Christian is admonished to "be continually filled with the Spirit." (Eph. 5:18)
Divine Healing and Health Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers (Is. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:16, 17: Mk. 16:18; Eph.4:11-13).
The Blessed Hope The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those whose who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Th. 4:16; Rom. 8:23)
Eternal Life for the Righteous We believe that because of the born again experience (John 3:3) the Christian is alive eternally. The body will ultimately die, but the spirit within the believer will live and reign with Christ forever. At Christ's coming, the spirit will be joined with an incorruptible body which will live forever (1 Cor. 15:45-47; 1 Thes. 4:13-17).
Damnation of the Wicked The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life shall be consigned to the lake of fire which is the second death (Rev. 20:10-15).
