NEW COVENANT CHURCH NOLA

Where the Spirit of God is poured upon ALL people (Acts 2:17)

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

  1. We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.  II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thess. 21:13; II Peter 1:21.
  2. We believe in the one true God – consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Isaiah 43:10-12; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus, His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31-35), His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; I Peter 2:22), His miracles (Acts 2:22, 10:38), His substitutionary death on the cross (I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:21), His bodily resurrection (I Corinthians 15:4; Luke 24:39; Matthew 28:6), and His exaltation to the right hand of God (Act 1:9-11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:911; Hebrews 1:3).
  4. We believe in the fall of Humanity (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19) and we believe that the shed blood of Jesus is the only provision for salvation from sin (John 3:3; Romans 10:9-10, 13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 3:5-7; Romans 3:22-26).
  5. We believe in and seek for the same Baptism in the Holy Ghost experienced by the apostles on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:4, 39; Joel 2:28).
  6. We believe that the initial scriptural physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Ghost is to speak with other tongues (Act 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:1-6; Mark 16:17; I Corinthians 14:18).
  7. We believe that spiritual evidences will accompany the Baptism in the Holy Ghost:  Power (Acts 1:8) and the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).  
  8. We believe that sanctification is separation from that which is evil and separation unto God.  We believe sanctification is an instantaneous, yet progressive work of grace. (Romans 12:1,2; I Thessalonians 5:23).  We believe we are to live a life of holiness unto the Lord (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15)  "Be ye holy as 'I AM' holy." (Romans 6:1-11; 13:3,13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:1213; I Peter 1:5).
  9. We believe that the church is the earthly manifestation of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).
  10. We believe that the Gifts of Jesus (Ephesians 4:11) and the Gifts of the Spirit (I Corinthians 12) are in operation in the church today.
  11. We believe that divine healing is provided in the atonement for all who believe (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16).
  12. We believe that the return of Jesus for His church in accordance with I Thessalonians 4:13-18 is the fulfillment of God's Word to all who have accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:23; John 14:3; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 15:51-52).
  13. We believe tithing is the scripturally based principal of support for the church and its ministries.  The opportunity for the people of God to bring their tithes and offerings into the storehouse shall be provided. (Malachi 3:10,11; Matthew 23:23; Luke 6:38; Leviticus 27:30-33; Hebrews 7:1-9).
  14. We believe in the ordinance of Baptism by immersion in water. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38, 10:47; Romans 6:4).  It is the public confession of faith, representing the inward work of salvation by grace.
