Statement of Faith

New Life’s Statement of Faith:

*  There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

*  The Bible is the inspired, the only infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

*  Jesus Christ is the only Son of God.  He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, was raised from the dead and will one day come again to reign and judge the world.

*  Salvation is by grace through an individual’s personal faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning work for our sin.  Good works are a result of true salvation, but salvation is not a result of good works.  Baptism is an act of obedience but is not essential for salvation.  Salvation comes by faith alone.
