New Life Fellowship Statement of Faith

The purpose of this statement of belief for New Life Fellowship (NLF) is to identify a spirit of unity by declaring the common doctrinal understandings of NLF. The following then are the basic doctrinal beliefs of NLF:

  1. We believe that the bible is the word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Psalms 19:7, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  2. We believe in one living and true God, perfect in wisdom, sovereignty, holiness, justice, mercy, and love (1 Timothy 1:17, Psalms 86:15, Deuteronomy 12:3-4). He exists eternally in three co-equal persons who act together in creation, providence and redemption (Genesis 1:26, 1 Peter 1:2, Hebrews 1:1-3).
    • We believe the Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 2:24, Isaiah 44:6)
    • We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death for the sins of all the people, Bodily resurrection for empowering of new life of all who believe, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth. (John 1:1-2, John 1:14, Romans 5:8, Luke 24:39, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Acts 1:11, Hebrews 7:25, 1 John 14:3, Revelation 19:11-16)
    • We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father an Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, fill and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ and that He wants to fill us and be our abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (1 Corinthians 6:19, John 14:16-18, 16:7-14, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 5:18, Galatians 5:16, 5:22-25)
  3. We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and we are therefore under just condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that they become a new creation in Christ Jesus, but the old nature is not eradicated. (John 3:3-7, 3:16, 18, 1:12-13, Romans 3:10, 23, 6:23, 10:9-13, 1 Peter 1:18-19,23)
  4. We believe that every human being has direct relations with God and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith. (Luke 20:37-38, Romans 14:1-12)
  5. We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow men, that his conduct should be blameless before the world, that he should realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:23, 31, 6: 19-20, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 2 Peter 3:14, 1 Peter 2:9-20)
  6. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relation in which they are eternally secure. (Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 2:11-14, 1 Peter 1:5)
  7. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that the Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer into water in the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for the commemoration of His death and resurrection with the blessed hope of His eminent return. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:26-29,28:19, Romans 6:1-11, 1 Corinthians 11:23-24, Acts 2:38)
  8. We believe in the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal joy of the righteous and everlasting suffering of the wicked. (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, Isaiah 24, Revelation 20-22, Matthew 24-25, Acts 1:11)
  9. We believe that each church is independent and must be free from any ecclesiastical or political authority, that therefore, church and state must be kept separate and having different functions and each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other. (Luke 20:19-26, Romans 13)
