What We Believe
We, at New Life Ministries International, believe that God has commissioned us to preach the Gospel to a lost and dying world, compelling them to accept the free gift of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, making disciples of them by teaching them His Word and Ways, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
We believe the following:
2 Timothy 3:16, 17 – “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
We believe that God is the Father, Jesus is the Son and the Holy Ghost is our Teacher.
1 Corinthians 8:6 – “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”
John 1:14 – “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
The Son was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the Cross as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of God the Father as our great Hight Priest, and He will return again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and justice.
The Holy Ghost is the Comforter sent by God the Father to indwell, to guide, and to teach the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement.
John 14:26 – “But the Comforter , which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
Man, His Fall and Redemption
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and the image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world (Romans 5:12). “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil, and gave his like and shed his blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Ephesians 2:8).
Salvation is made possible through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross through repentance. 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Eternal life is the benefit of the Cross of Christ received at salvation. (Titus 2:11; romans 10:13–15; Luke 24:47; Titus 3:5–7).
Jesus Christ is the head of the body, which is the Church.
Colossions 1:18 – “And he is the head of the body, the church…”
Those who have accepted Christ as the Savior are born again and make up the true church of God (John 3:6) (1 Peter 1:23).
God, through the Holy Ghost, “…gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”: Ephesians 4:11, 12.
Baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct commandment of our Lord (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision for Christ. It identifies the believer with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection (Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36–39).
Baptism of the Holy Ghost
The Baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God, as promised by the Lord Jesus Chris to all believers and is received after the new birth (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 2:4, 38. 39; 10:44–48).
The initial physical sign and evidence of baptism of the Holy Ghost is speaking in other tongues as the Holy Ghost Himself give utterance (Acts 2:4).
The Bible teaches that without holiness, no man can see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a distinct, yet progressive, work of grace beginning at the time of salvation (Hebrews 13:12;2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2; Ephesians 5:26; 1 Corinthians 6:11; John 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:23).
The Lord's Supper
The Lord’s Supper is a commandment of our Savior and is a memorial to His death and resurrection (Luke 22:19).
Healing is God’s redemptive provision, paid for by Jesus’ strips (Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:16–17; 1 Peter 2:24). Jesus’ atoning death was complete and adequate for redeeming the whole person–spirit, soul and body. As sin and sickness are designed by Satan to destroy us, so forgiveness and healing are joined as blessings designed by God to redeem us and make us whole (Psalm 103:3; James 5:14–16).
Resurrection of the Just
The Bible promises, “this same Jesus shall so come in like manner” (Acts 1:11). His coming is imminent; when He comes, “The dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17). Following the tribulation, He shall return to earth, as King of kings, and Lord of Lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Revelation 20:6).
Setting a Time for the Lord's Return
It is unwise to tach that the Lord will come at some specified time, thereby setting a date for His appearing. It is also unwise to teach, preach or publish visions of numbers and dates which would tend to fix the time of the second coming of the Lord (Mark 13:32, 33).
Hell and Eternal Retribution
The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or for repentance (Hebrews 9:27). The lake of fire is literal (Revelation 19:20). The terms “eternal” and “everlasting” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned (Matthew 25:41–46) in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as use in denoting the duration of joy and delight of saints in the presence of God.
At the heart of tithing is the knowledge that God owns everything (Exodus 19:5; Psalm 24:1; 50:10–12; Haggai 2:8).
The Hebrew word for “tithe” (ma’ser) literally means “a tenth part.”
Proverbs 3:9 – “Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase”:
Malachi 3:10, 11 “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pur you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.”
