New Life Apostolic Church is a Bible-based church. We're Bible-based in that we seek to base all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible or on biblical principles. Based on Scripture, we believe the following . . .
The basic and fundamental doctrine of this organization shall be the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.
We shall endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit until we all come into the unity of the faith, at the same time admonishing all brethren that they shall not contend for their different views to the disunity of the body.
We believe that the bible is the infallible word of God penned by men as they were moved on by the Holy Spirit. We must accept it in its entirety. Although it was written many years ago, its truths still remain relevant in this day and age.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the living God made flesh (John 1:1-14) who came to earth to save us from our sins.
We are born into sin (Romans 3:23) and if we continue in our sin (Romans 6:23) we are bound to suffer for eternity in hell, a place intended for satan. Just as Jesus died, we must die to our sins in repentance. Repentance is more than merely feeling sorry that we’ve done wrong but it is a willingness to turn away from those sins.
Just as Jesus was buried, we must also be buried (baptized). We must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ as it was performed in the bible (Acts 19:4-5; 2:38; 4:12). We are baptized for the remission of our sins.
Once we are figuratively dead and buried, we must be resurrected as Jesus rose from the dead. We are resurrected into new life with Him by being filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 19:2) evidenced by speaking in other tongues (Acts 19:6; 2:1-4, 37-39).
We believe worship should be a time of refreshing and rejuvenation. Throughout the word of God his people praised Him with exuberance out of the abundance of their heart. Psalm 134:2 tells us to lift up our hands in the sanctuary. We play instruments and clap our hands because Psalm 150 instructs us to “Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs”. Our worship should be an outward expression of what we feel in our hearts. When you visit New Life you will see, feel and hear worship because it is in our hearts. Come experience God like you’ve never felt Him before.
If you have any questions regarding our beliefs we would be glad to set up a home bible study with you. Feel free to contact us and request a bible study and we will come to your home or wherever you wish and open up God’s word and examine it together. We have a variety of bible studies ranging from 1 hour to 12 weeks in length.
