What We Believe

  

New Freedom Missionary Baptist Church is a Bible based and Spirit lead church. We strive to minister to the whole man while giving special attention to the spiritual needs of the people of God. Our core beliefs are as follows:

 

We believe in God ~there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
 

We believe in Jesus Christ ~ Jesus Christ is the incarnate reality of God. He is a true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose boldly from the dead, ascended unto heaven, and is at the right hand of God; He is now our High Priests and Advocate.
 

We believe in the Holy Spirit ~ The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age; to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
 

We believe in Humanity ~ We believe man was created in the image of God. God breathe life into man and he became a living soul; man voluntarily rebelled against God and fell from a state of perfection, thereby experiencing separation from God; consequently, all men are sinners. By choice, man is redeemed through accepting Jesus Christ as his only hope of experiencing peace with God.
 

We believe in Salvation ~ We believe in God’s saving grace: as demonstrated by the shed blood & resurrection of Jesus our Savior; that the blessings of salvation are free to all through the Gospel; nothing interferes with the salvation of a sinner except his refusal of the Gospel; therefore, man’s disbelief is his condemnation.
 

We believe in Justification ~ We believe that justification is being brought into a right relationship with God; His position is accomplished without consideration of good works (of righteousness); that justification is the pardoning of sin, the gift of eternal life displays God’s love for human-kind; and that by faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ was His righteousness given to us.
 

We believe in Lord Supper & Baptism ~ We believe baptism is an ocular demonstration of God’s inward renewal in the life of a believer. It is the symbol of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection to a new life. It is a prerequisite to the privileges of the church in relation to the Lord’s Supper. Jesus Christ took bread and wine and established them as the imperishable symbols of the church. The Lord’s Table is open to all true believers and only believers should share in its fellowship.
 

We believe in the Church~ The true church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the head.

 

We believe in the Return of Christ ~ The personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of Our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life service of the believer.
 

We believe in Marriage ~ We believe marriage is established by God as a union between one man and one woman. 


  • Genesis 2:22-24  22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
     

We believe in Ministry Participation~ We believe that every member of the Body of Christ has been given an assignment for the church by God, according to their Spiritual gifts and talents. We should be discovering, developing, and demonstrating our Spiritual gifts.
