New Beginnings Fellowship: Our Beliefs
New Beginnings Fellowship as an evangelical expression of the Christian faith accepts the three ancient documents of the early church: The Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. In particular we affirm:
The inspiration and authority of the Scriptures;
The existence of One God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
The creation of the human race in the Image of God;
The fall and resultant human depravity;
The Deity of Christ, His Incarnation, miraculous ministry, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, current priestly ministry, and eternal rule;
Salvation by the Grace of God apart from human works or merit, through faith in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit;
One Holy Christian Church, the Body of Christ, which is given historic expression in local congregations assembled for worship, service, fellowship, teaching, preaching, prayer, evangelism, and observance of the Christian ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper;
The Second Coming of Christ and the consummation of all things;
The eternal blessings of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.
New Beginnings Fellowship: Our Mission
New Beginnings Fellowship is a Community of Believers united for worship, service, fellowship, preaching, teaching, prayer, evangelism, and observance of the Christian ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
"Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters, 'Behold, I will do a new thing'" (Isaiah 43:16, 19).
