Our Purpose Statement

New Birth is a place where we LOVE, LIVE and LEAD LIKE CHRIST

A vision where FAMILIES are strong units, founded in the Word, and raising men and  women to be people of integrity, honor and discipline.

A vision where COMMUNITIES work together to help the less fortunate so that everyone is not only employed but empowered to be contributing members of society.

A vision where CORPORATIONS and GOVERNMENTS turn to men and women of faith (Christian faith) for guidance, direction and leadership in business and  governmental affairs.

God continues to bring people to New Birth who are both skilled and passionate  about  the Kingdom  to help make  this vision a reality.

What We Believe

The Scriptures

We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is inerrant in the original writings. The Bible being the revealed Word of God is the ground and foundation from which all claims of truth shall be substantiated. The Word of God is alive and quick! Through God’s sovereign hand, the Scriptures have been preserved and are the supreme and final authority. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:12)

God

We believe that there is only one true and living God, existing in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each is a distinct Person, but they are all of one essence; they all have the same nature, perfection and attributes, and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence and obedience. (Genesis 1:1-3, 26; Matthew 3:16,17; John 1:1,14, 10:30, 14:26, 15:26; Matthew 28:19)

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; that he shed His blood on Calvary in our place, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father, according to the Scriptures. (Luke 1:26-33, 22:20, 24:46

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity — God — and coexistent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the Chief Agent in the regeneration of the soul, the Chief Convictor of sin and the Chief Comforter of the believer. Simultaneous with regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him and seals him in salvation for all eternity. The Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts to the believer. (John 16:1-13; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Ephesians 1:13-14; I Corinthians 12:1-11)

Man

We believe that man is the direct creation of God — body, soul and spirit. Therefore, man is not in any way a result of evolution but is made in God’s image. The sin and fall of Adam resulted in the fall of creation and mankind, both physically and spiritually. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 5:12, 8:18-23)

Salvation

We believe that all who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God.  Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification. (Ephesians 1:7; Romans 10:9-10, 5:7-11; Colossians 1:13-14, 21-22; John 17:16-22; II Corinthians 5:17; I Corinthians 6:19)

Eternal Security

We believe that salvation is not only a gift from God but is sustained by Him as well. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man. The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in salvation for all eternity. Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith. (John 3:16, 10:27-29, 14:16-17, 26; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5; Jude 24-25
