These are our core values and beliefs...
NEW HEART CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP exists to: invite people to a life of faith in Jesus Christ; and to cultivate a community of continued encounter and transformation in Him.
ENCOUNTERING GOD – We believe that it is deep and powerful encounters with God that truly open our hearts, and show us that God is real. For each person their encounters are as individual as they are, and are a vital component of the Christian life. We all can encounter God in a variety of ways, and it is New Heart's hope to provide a variety of places for that to happen in a person's life.
TRANSFORMED BY GOD – Whenever we have a true encounter with God we are given an opportunity for change in our lives. When we allow the Spirit of the Lord to work deeply in our hearts he brings about true transformation. This transformation is the mark of a progressing discipleship and what New Heart encourages every believer to invite into their lives.
SHARING GOD – When we have a real encounter with the Living God, and experience true change in our life it is something that deserves to be shared. In fact, real transformation is exciting and creates an inner desire to express it through words, or the through the way we live; it is no wonder that Jesus expected this all of his disciples. As the Holy Spirit changes us he fill us with God's love, and New Heart is devoted to providing opportunities for us to share that love through word and deed.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Of the many values of our Christian faith here are - Six Essentials We Believe
ABOUT THE BIBLE The Bible is God’s infallible word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
ABOUT GOD God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and Spirit. Jesus was born through divine virgin birth, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as the sovereign God.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. Through faith he makes divine spiritual gifts available to the Christian.
ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS People are God’s creations. We were brought forth in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. We are all granted free will, and although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and will result in our eternal damnation.
ABOUT SALVATION Salvation is the only way to be rescued from sin’s destruction. Salvation is God’s gracious gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
