New Heart’s vision is to create disciples that influence their community, and this world,
by bringing hope to the hopeless through the goodness of God.
We’re guided by these key passages of scripture:
“My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence
does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. For how then can it be known that I have found
favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people,
may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?” . . .Then
Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!”
“It will come about after this that I will pour My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters
will prophecy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. Even on the male
female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”
Love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul, with
all your mind, and with all your strength . . . and Love your neighbor as yourself.
There is no other commandment greater than these.
Our Father in heaven, hallowed by Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Those from among you shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the
first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up
here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”
Our mission in everything we do, and our very identity--who we are, begins
and ends with Christ in you, the Hope of Glory.
What We Believe
What We Believe
1. Our first ministry is to God, therefore we worship with extravagant joy & gratitude.
- Our personal relationship with Him is our number one priority.
2. Salvation frees us from the power of the devil - sin, lies, sickness & torment.
3. Every believer is a supernatural minister of the gospel of power whom signs & wonders should follow.
- All ministry flows from the prayer, "Thy kingdom come... on earth as it is in heaven."
- We equip and send the church to carry on the works of Jesus.
4. We demonstrate God's grace, His unconditional love & transforming power, to everyone.
- We impact every socioeconomic group & cultural realm that mercy & justice would reign because we pastor a city, not just a church.
5. Christ is returning for a glorious overcoming bride - His Church
- We are more than "sinners saved by grace", we are saints - sons & daughters of the King.
- So we expect to successfully fulfill the Great Commission - passing on revival from one generation to the next - even if the world grows
darker in the last days.
- We embrace the biblical government of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and
Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and
truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent - one
being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy
The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him yet we
willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were
intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the
world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was
conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's
Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom
on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected
and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of
God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."
We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of
Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through
repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The
Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we
enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian
is enabled to live holy and minister super-naturally. The baptism of
the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on
believers that they might have power to be witnesses.
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from
the power of the enemy * sin, lies, sickness and torment.
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave
His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists
to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His
kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the
good news of God's love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching
them to love and obey God.
In the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is
the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride
His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the
saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
