The name New Church is connected to something that’s written in the Bible. In 2 Corinthians 5:17, the Apostle Paul says, “…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
New Church exists to help people belong, so they can become new through Jesus!
We want to help people fulfill God’s purpose for their lives, and we believe this is most effectively accomplished through a simple, 3-step process:
Discover the new life God has for you in Jesus Christ!
Devote yourself to the next step in your journey of faith!
Display your faith by loving God and loving others!
Because of who Jesus is and what he has done, we worship him through every area of our lives! (Romans 12:1)
Because God is faithful, and he can always be trusted, we commit everything we do to him as a step of faith! (Psalm 37:4,5)
Because Jesus showed sacrificial love for others, we love people and point them to him! (Ephesians 5:1-2)
Because everything we have comes from God, we gladly give him the first and best of what we’ve been given! (1 Chronicles 29:14)
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error. (Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost. (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; John 1:1, 14; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Timothy 2:5, 3:16)
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have a relationship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person repents of their sins and places their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for their sin. (Act 3:19, 16:31; Romans 5:9, 10:9-10; Galatians 2:16; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-9, 13; Titus 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:18-21; 1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5)
