These basic doctrines within The New Life Fellowship of faith represent what we believe to be core elements of biblical teaching.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is infallible and inspired by God. The Bible is our standard in all we say and do.
There is one true God. He has always existed without any cause or agent bringing Him into being. He is the Creator of heaven and earth. He is the One who rescued mankind from sin. God has further revealed himself as a single being consisting of three interrelated persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God has always existed. He became human, lived a perfect life on earth working miracles. In order to restore fallen mankind, He died on the cross as a substitute for the sins of every person. He was raised from the dead by the power of God.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts, and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character, and love among Christians. The empowering of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, is available for every Christian.
Mankind was created good and upright, however, by willful choice ignored God’s instruction choosing to engage in what they knew was wrong and evil. As a result they incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God.
The church includes all Christians and has no boundaries as to age, race, gender, or denomination. The church is: to be an agency of God for evangelizing the world; to be a corporate or unified body in which man may worship God.
Salvation is deliverance from spiritual death. God provides salvation for all who believe and accept His free offer of forgiveness by accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, as their personal Savior.
All who have accepted Christ and have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air. Christians, who have not yet died, will be caught up with them to be with God forever.
One day there will be a final judgment in which those who have died without accepting Christ’s salvation, will be raised and judged according to the way they lived. They will be sent to everlasting punishment, which is the second death.
Sanctification is an act of separating ourselves from evil and identifying with things that are good and morally pure. It is a process that takes place as Christians devote themselves to God.
Divine healing from God is an integral part of the gospel.
In baptism by immersion in water. The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is a memorial of Christ's suffering and death
It is God’s plan for every Christian to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, which gives spiritual power to witness and to live the full, happy, and godly life outlined in the Bible.
