There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)

Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. This gift is free, and it cannot be earned by accomplishing good works, such as tithing or faithful church attendance. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)

The Gospel

The Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again in victory. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) through repentance (death to sin), being baptized by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in other tongues as the initial sign (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

Christian Living

As Christians we are called to love God and neighbor. We should strive live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, such as healing, prophecy, and tongues are in full use at New Life. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)

The Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In accordance with scripture, there will be a final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
