Our Vision

Our Vision at New Beginnings Christian Center is to be an equipping resource to our community to develop disciples who are able to raise up other disciples to do the work of the ministry.

 

Our Mission

Our Mission at New Beginnings Christian Center is to touch people with the love of Jesus, regardless of their age, race, or background; to restore their relationships with God and with others; to equip them for the fulfillment of God’s purpose in their lives; and then to release them for the works of service to which the Spirit has led them and our Savior has called.

 

Our Values

  • We value People, therefore we will place their needs, their purpose, and their development, at the very forefront of all that we do.
  • We value the Word of God as the inerrant foundation of our lives, therefore it will unconditionally govern every aspect of our work, our ministry, and our personal behavior.
  • We value the manifest Presence of God, therefore we will invest ourselves in a lifestyle of worship and in the continual, fervent pursuit of genuine worship encounters.
  • We value the Development of the Body of Christ, therefore we will spend our time, our effort, and our resources on the restoration, training, equipping, and releasing of every person in our care into the work to which God has called them.
  • We value Diversity, therefore we are determined that our reach will not be limited by age, race, or background.

DECLARATION OF FAITH (pdf)

Basic Theology

  • We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
  • We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Becoming a Christian

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).
  • We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
  • We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).
  • We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).
  • We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).

Doctrine

  • We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian; and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).
  • We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).
  • We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).

The Church

  • We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
  • We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).
  • We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).

Daily Living

  • We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
  • We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).
  • We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).
  • We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

The Future

  • We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
  • We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgment seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).
  • We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
  • We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).
