What We Believe
The mission of New Life Church International is to teach Christians "who they are" in Christ Jesus, and how to live a victorious life in their covenant rights and privileges!
New Life is a spirit-filled, word-of-faith church affiliated with the International Convention of Faith Ministries (ICFM).
Statement of Faith:
We believe in one God-Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the first begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, buried, resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man.
WORD OF GOD
We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe in personal salvation of believers through the blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness, purity of heart and life.
We believe in divine healh and healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the Redemption.
We believe in water baptism by immersion as a public expression of a believer's new salvation.
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all of these are available to believers.
We believe in the Christian's hope; the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ which will deliver us from the tribulation, and the future millenial reign of Christ.
