STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
We believe the Bible, composed of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, to be inspired (God-breathed) Word of God (II Timothy 3:16). It is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. In other words, it is the revealed will of God concerning what Christians should believe and how they should live. The Bible is our ultimate statement of faith. “Where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent, we are silent.” Doctrinal creeds and statements of faith can be both divisive and misleading, since they are all composed by imperfect human beings. Therefore, we assert the following:
In essential beliefs – we have unity Ephesians 4:4-6
In nonessential beliefs – we have liberty Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
In all our beliefs – we exhibit charity I Corinthians 13:2, Ephesians 4:15
Although we prefer the Bible to speak for itself, for the purpose of understanding the basic doctrinal positions of New Life Assembly of God, the following is presented:
