Values & Beliefs
Newstart holds strongly to our values in order to shape the personality of our collective community. We use them to provide a blueprint for the types of ministries we build.
HOLISTIC DISCIPLE MAKING
Evangelizing, converting, maturing, and reproducing followers of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20)
BIBLICAL INTEGRITY WITH CULTURAL RELEVANCE
We will produce Biblically true ministries with culturally relevant methods, prompting - personal and corporate - faith, holiness, and service. As our community changes we will continually change the methods by which we proclaim the never changing message of the gospel. (Acts 2:42, Romans 12:1-2)
A commitment to intercession and spiritual warfare. We believe that God can and will do the miraculous according to His will. He will rescue, empower, provide, and move in response to our faithfulness in prayer. (1 Kings 19:36-37, Matthew 6:5-15)
UNITY OF PURPOSE AND PEOPLE
It will be essential for all who join us to unite in our purpose. We will minister to people of any race or economic status and will purposefully grow a church that reflects the mix of people that we have in our community. (Philippians 2:1-5, John 17:11, 1 Corinthians 1:10, Colossians 3:11, Romans 15:5-7)
MEMBER DRIVEN MINISTRIES
We will generate ownership of ministry by equipping Christians and rendering opportunities for them to use their spiritual gifts to be the priesthood of believers God has called them to be. (Acts 2:46-47, Acts 20:20, Ephesians 4:11-16, 1 Peter 2:5,9).
LOCAL TO GLOBAL MISSIONS
We will promote, educate, raise funds for and participate in missions. We recognize that we are blessed greatly with gifts from God, and we will be faithful stewards of the gifts we have received by sharing them with people in need and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a local to global level. (Acts 1:8)
Newstart Church is proud to be a Church of the Nazarene.
