What we believe at NEWSONG about Jesus, the Bible, Salvation, Grace and the Church
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory over death and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe in one living and true God, who being one in essence, exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Persons of the Trinity possess the same divine nature, attributes, and perfections. They are equally worthy of honor, trust and obedience, and they carry out unique functions in God’s interaction with humanity.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the primary authority of faith and practice for the believer in Jesus Christ. We interpret scripture through reason, tradition, and experience but Scripture is the final, ultimate authority.
We believe humanity was created in the image of God to live in vibrant fellowship with Him. Through our disobedience to the will of God, humanity sinned and at that point, we began to experience the death brought on by sin. Humanity is born into sin and our sinful nature is present with us throughout our entire lives. This state of spiritual death is the reason for our need of salvation through Jesus Christ.
We believe that we have broken our covenant with God through our sins, and that salvation is found only in and through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. We believe all who trust in Him are declared righteous through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe all who believe in Jesus are justified by grace through faith.
We place a strong emphasis on the love and grace of God. This grace is experienced by people through the work of the Holy Spirit. We believe in:
We believe in two “outward and visible signs” of the grace of God in human experience: baptism and Holy Communion.
We believe all who have been restored by the Holy Spirit belong to the one true universal Church and are called to be a part of the Church - the Body of Christ. We believe the Church is present to do the work of God throughout the world through the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe we are called to lead others to saving faith in Christ and help them grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
