What We Believe
NewSong is a Christian church and we hold to the essentials of Christian faith; however, we leave room for differences and discovery when it comes to non-essential issues. 

Here is a summary of what we believe:

 

About the Bible.
The Bible is God’s Word, or His communication with us. It is inspired by Him, written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21 
 
About God.
God has always existed in perfect power and holiness. He is Creator of the universe, and He rules over every aspect of creation still today. He exists in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1, Deuteronomy 6:4
 

About Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He lived a perfect life as both fully man and fully God and died on a cross to secure the salvation of all mankind. After three days in the grave, He defeated sin and death and rose from the grave. He will return one day to rule and reign.
John 1:1-18, Colossians 1:13-22

About the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for salvation, and He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, comfort, spiritual gifts and abilities, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
Genesis 1:2, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 1:13-14


About Salvation.

Because of our sinful nature, the Bible teaches that man cannot enter into heaven no matter how good of a life he may have lived. Jesus Christ came to earth to take the punishment for the sin of all mankind, and our only hope for salvation is faith in the truth that Jesus died for our sin and made a way for us to gain the righteousness it takes to enter heaven.
Genesis 3, Romans 3:10-23, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9


About the Church.

The Bible teaches that the church is the body of Christ in the world today. A local church is made up of baptized followers of Jesus Christ. The church should live out the mission of Christ as His body.
Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:41-47, Colossians 1:8, 1 Peter 5:1-5


About Baptism.

Baptism is an act of obedience for every believer. We practice baptism by immersion, symbolizing the imagery of salvation through Jesus – that our old selves have been crucified and buried, and that we now live a new life by the power of His resurrection.
Matthew 3:16, Mark 1:9, Romans 6:3-4, Colossians 2:12
