信仰 Our Faith

我們是一間不分宗派、多樣事工的教會,特別注重大華府華人社區的福音工作。我們分別有華語及英語各樣事工。我們教會的宗旨為﹕

  • 聖經--全部聖經為我們信仰的指南與中心。
  • 禱告--禱告是我們事工的原動力。
  • 合一--我們的華語與英語事工互相關懷,全教會合一。
  • 差傳--我們差派會員向外宣揚耶穌基督的福音。 

我們也有所堅持的核心信仰,作為合一的基礎。

我們相信聖經是信仰、日常生活和事工的唯一準則。我們相信上帝對整本聖經的啟示,聖經是神無誤和權威的話語。

我們相信上帝,祂存在於三個位格:聖父,聖子和聖靈。我們信父神,是創造天地並對其中一切有統治主權的主。

我們相信耶穌是基督,神的獨生子,因聖靈成孕,由童貞女馬利亞所生。基督被釘死在十字架上為我們的罪償還了罪債刑罰。第三天復活升天。將來必再降臨審判活人死人。

我們相信聖靈的工作為要榮耀主耶穌基督,使罪人知罪,更新信靠基督的人。聖靈內住,引導,指導和賜能力給所有信徒,使信徒能夠敬虔度日,多結果子和得上帝的喜悅。

我們相信人是按照上帝的形象所造的,但選擇犯罪,因此與上帝隔絕。只有信靠耶穌基督,我們的罪才得赦免,得與上帝相交。我們相信耶穌命令我們要領受洗禮和聖餐,作為祂在十字架上恩典工作的象徵。 

我們相信基督是教會的頭,並且所有信徒聯結在一起成為祂的肢體。我們聚會以教導,鼓勵,崇拜,裝備和外展為目的。

我們相信耶穌會再來召集那些信靠祂為救主的人。

Who are we?

We are a non-denominational, independent church. New Life is bound relationally and organizationally to theChinese Christian Church of Greater Washington, D.C.. This allows us to specialize in ministry to the Chinese and Asian communities, as well as build a diverse, multi-cultural ministry of our own. While our approaches to ministry may be different, our purpose, beliefs and values are the same.

What do we believe?

We have four VALUES that bind us together.

  1. We value the Bible as our ultimate and authoritative source of truth.
  2. We value Prayer as it gives us power to live the Christian life.
  3. We value Unity amidst diversity
  4. We value the opportunity to Send people out to minister to the world.

We also have CORE BELIEFS we adhere to, as the basis for our unity.

We believe the Bible to be the sole standard for faith, daily living, and ministry. We believe in God's inspiration of the whole Bible, which is His inerrant and authoritative word.

We believe in God, who exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Father, Maker and Sovereign Ruler of heaven and earth and all that is in them.

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the only Son of God, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Christ was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. On the third day, he rose again and ascended to heaven. He will return to judge the living and the dead.

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men of sin, and renew those who trust in Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers all believers so they can live a godly life that is fruitful and pleasing to God.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but chose to sin and is therefore separated from God. Only by faith in Jesus Christ will our sins be forgiven and only then can we have fellowship with God. We believe Jesus commanded us to celebrate baptism and communion as symbols of His gracious work on the cross.

We believe that Christ is the head of the church, and that all believers are united together as members of His body. We gather together for the purpose of instruction, encouragement, worship, equipping and outreach.

We believe Jesus will someday return to gather together those who have trusted Him as their savior.
