New Hope Church is founded on the Bible. The basis for our beliefs and lifestyle come from explicit passages of the Bible and biblical principles. Based on Scripture, we believe the following.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
There is one God, Who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. Jesus was both fully God and fully man (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16).
ABOUT SIN AND SALVATION
Everyone has sinned and needs to be saved. Salvation comes by grace through faith and known by our obedience to His Word. We know that our salvation is based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).
ABOUT THE GOSPEL
The Good News is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul wrote that the Gospel is His death; His burial; and His resurrection. We are instructed to obey the Gospel in our lives. We obey the Gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).
ABOUT CHRISTIAN LIVING
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).
ABOUT THE FUTURE
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. We believe in Heaven and Hell; that there will be a final calling away (resurrection) and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11 15).
