Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs:

The New Horizons Community Church is a Pentecostal church that accepts the main tenants of the Christian church. The following is a basic outline of our beliefs. A more complete statement of beliefs can be provided, including Scripture references.

The Godhead:

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and co-eternal in every respect. The creator and sustainer of all things visible and invisible.
The Word Of God:

Inspired, infallible and the sole authority in all matters of Christian faith and practice.

Man:

Created by God in his own image, now fallen, separated from God and incapable of returning to God by his own efforts.

The Devil:

A fallen angel who influenced man's downfall and now attempts to destroy mankind. Christ's victory over him provides every believer access to Christ's absolute authority over the devil and his evil spirits who are consigned to eternal punishment.

Salvation:

Received solely by the grace of God through genuine repentance and wholehearted trust in Jesus. Forgiveness of sin, liberation from bondage to the world and freedom in His Spirit, produce in the believer an upright life.

The Church:

Comprised of all believers in Christ and gathered in local congregations which assemble for worship and the proclamation of the Gospel. Each autonomous local church, led by ministry gifts, governed by elders and served by deacons is an operational base for influencing the world through evangelism and community care.

The Ordinances:

Believer's baptism and the Lord's Table were established by Christ for all believers to practice. They express our identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.

The Baptism In The Holy Spirit:

Distinct from new birth and accompanied by speaking in tongues as the initial evidence of the receiving of this gift by faith. It empowers the believer for effective witness and gives access to the nine gifts of the Spirit.

The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit:

Are supernatural gifts for the edification and equipping of the church for ministry. They are given by the Holy Spirit and exercised by the believer through faith.

The Fruit Of The Holy Spirit:

Such as love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, meekness and self-control characterise the life of the believer and the ministry of the church.

Divine Healing:

Affirmed throughout the Bible, divine healing and divine deliverance are available to all through faith in the redemptive death and victorious resurrection of Christ.

Prayer:

Is the right and privilege of every believer by which they can commune with God, offer supplication and thanksgiving, pray with authority and so release the transforming power of God. In prayer we can receive comfort, guidance, reassurance and edification.

The Resurrections:

Bodily for both the just, into eternal life and immortality, and the unjust into judgment. Eternal punishment is for all who reject the love of God manifest in the sacrificial death of his Son on the Cross for the salvation of all.

Prophecy:

Bible prophecy is being progressively fulfilled through the course of history culminating in the visible, personal and glorious return of Christ. This will be associated with the fulfilment of other events foretold in the Scriptures and conclude with the saints enjoying eternity with God.
