The New Dawn Statement of Faith

We believe the bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God

We believe there is one God, the Sovereign Creator, eternally existent in three persons. Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in glory and power

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolute essential. We believe that salvation is the act of sovereign grace conferred on the believer by a loving heavenly Father and that it is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We believe man’s good works are of no avail in bringing personal redemption, good works being rather the fruit of devoted Christian discipleship.

STATEMENT  OF  FAITH

We believe that man in his natural condition is a sinner and alienated from God. That the sinner must  repent of his sin before he is in a position to receive forgiveness of sin and regeneration

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose application of the blood of Christ to the heart of the believer; he is cleansed from all sin and enabled to live a godly life, victorious over all power of the devil

We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory, the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ

We believe that the walk of a Christian should be in continual growth in grace and the knowledge of the Son of God

STATEMENT  OF  FAITH

We believe God has appointed two sacraments Baptism, which is the outward sign of the new birth and the Lord’s supper, which is an outward acknowledgement of faith in Christ

(New Dawn affirm the liberty of individuals to decide the mode of Baptism (immersion or pouring) and would encourage others to give due honour, in love, to the views held by differing believers)

We believe God ordained marriage and the family as the foundational institution of human society, and that the only legitimate marriage is a sacred and permanent relationship between one man and one woman,  symbolising the unity of Christ and his church. (Genesis 2 :18-25)
