Statement of Beliefs:
We believe God inspired the authors of Scripture by his Spirit to speak to all
generations of believers, including us today. In the original writings they are
without error. We believe the Scriptures speak with the authority of God and reflect the backgrounds, cultures, and personalities of the human authors. By God’s Spirit, we seek to interpret, contextualize, and live out His desire for us
today as it is written in the Bible.
We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally
existing in three persons, Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit. God
created humans in his image to live eternally in a loving family with Him. But
the enemy of God, tempted the first human beings…and because they chose to sin and go their own way, they were separated from God and suffered under the corruption of the “Reign of sin”. Because of this, death, disease, darkness, and evil entered the world…and from that time to this, all of creation cry’s out to be restored to Gods original creation.
Thankfully, our Father in heaven, who is a perfect and holy God, did not abandon us to our own destruction, but instead promised to provide a way to restore us, and His wonderful creation, back to Himself. That “Way” took on flesh in the person of Jesus Christ who is Gods only son. He willingly left the perfection of Heaven and was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus made every effort to help people understand His Kingdom and what it was really about…but a lot of folks didn’t like what He was saying. So, with the help of one of His own close friends, they captured Him and sentenced Him to die. He died a cruel and terrible death on the cross of torture…as payment for our sins. But…just as He said He would…Jesus came back to life three days after His death! He was seen, spoke to, and ate with hundreds of people after His death…and then…one day…He said “goodbye for now”…was taken up to heaven and has prepared
a place there for you and I to live with Him forever! His suffering, death,
burial, and resurrection bring hope for all humankind. Sin and death have been defeated and the promise of forgiveness and eternal communion with God are now available to all through Jesus. No amount of good works or human effort can make us good enough to be with Him. It is only by God’s love for us that we are saved. This “Love gift”, from our Heavenly Father, can only be realized through a change of heart and a sincere “turning away” from doing life our way…to believing in Jesus and doing life His way.
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to make us aware of our need for the forgiveness of sin through Christ. The Holy Spirit miraculously renews our hearts and then
permanently indwells them, encouraging us and reminding us of the things Jesus wants us to remember and live by. The Holy Spirit empowers us with gifts, convicts us when we do wrong, guides us when we feel lost and confused, comforts us in times of sorrow or stress, counsels us when we need wisdom and understanding, and leads us into the truth about Jesus and our Father in Heaven.
New Song Christian Fellowship is a gathering of believers rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus, practicing spiritual disciplines of worship, celebrating baptisms and “New Births”, and gathering together to partake of “The Lord’s Supper”. This expression of the church of Jesus seeks to live “The Way of Jesus” through love, peace, sacrifice, worship and giving…that the world will know we love Him by our love for one another!
