Beliefs

New Friendship Baptist Church is a family of believers who hold to the following beliefs:

God—We believe there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus—We believe Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

Christ’s Return—We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

Holy Spirit—We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

Bible—We believe the Bible is the Word of God without any error; the sole authority for life and faith.

Man—We believe man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Salvation—We believe salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Assurance—We believe every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity—We believe those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

Baptism—We believe water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

Church—We believe the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Prayer—We believe each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
