ROMANS 6:4 NKJV
"Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we should walk in NEWness of LIFE."
At New Life Cathedral we believe that religious affiliations and denominations are unimportant as the church bases its beliefs solely on the Bible, asserting it to be inspired by God, inerrant, infallible, and the final authority on matters which it covers. Based on its understanding of the Bible, New Life intends to nurture souls within Christ through the four tenets of: fellowship, discipleship, stewardship, and worship. New Life also believes in and draws the following Biblical conclusions about the following topics:
GOD: We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
JESUS: We believe that Jesus is: the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into heaven.
CHRIST'S RETURN: We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth from heaven.
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide to every believer.
BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
SALVATION: We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
ASSURANCE: We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
ETERNITY: We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
2 BAPTISMS: 1.) We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation. 2.) Baptism in the Holy Ghost with bible evidence of praying in tongues. This happens during acceptance of Jesus into one's life where He baptizes our spirit.
COMMUNION: We believe that it is Holy and as often as we partake in this sacrament it keeps a fresh reminder in our minds of the pain, suffering, agony and shame that Jesus Christ endured because of Gods love for us as he took on our sins and died for us in our place.
LAYING ON OF HANDS: We believe in the laying on of hands for impartation of spiritual authority & power. We lay hands on both men and women who have been elevated spiritually into certain offices, through spiritual consecration & dedication. We also lay on hands for impartation of the Holy Spirit, to anoint, and for divine healing.
