NEW BEGINNINGS’ MISSION STATEMENT

LEARN MORE ABOUT DISCIPLESHIP

MISSION

“We Make Disciples…”

VISION

“…of All Peoples and Nations…”

PURPOSE

“…for the Glory of God.”

To join New Beginnings Church is to become His disciple, and really belong to His church. Discipleship is the process, commanded by God, which helps us transform into the image of Jesus as we become knowledgeable and experienced in biblical truth, and involved in God’s mission to change the world.

We find Jesus’ clearest definition of the disciple in the single verse of Matthew 4:19:

“…Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

At New Beginnings Church, we believe that:

A disciple is one who follows Jesus, is being transformed by Jesus, and is involved in the mission of Jesus to make disciples who make disciples.

“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

-Matthew 16:18

Core Values

BIBLICAL

God breathed life into His Word. It is our guidebook for living.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God[a] may be complete, equipped for every good work.

MISSIONAL

God expects, equips, and empowers us to get involved in His Gospel mission.

MATTHEW 28:18-20

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

TRANSFORMATIONAL

God changes us from death to life and then molds us into the image of His son.

2 CORINTHIANS 3:18

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

RELATIONAL

God created us to be in relationship with Him and with one another.

MATTHEW 22:37-39

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Six Theological Essentials

Jesus is the only path to God – a lifetime of adventure, of fulfillment, of challenge, of purpose, to salvation. The exclusivity of Jesus Christ alone to save us from our sins is non-negotiable.

The Holy Spirit’s primary role, as identified in scripture, has always been to point people to the gospel through Jesus. He empowers, He guides, and He leads people to know and serve Jesus.

Worship is intentionally and genuinely expressing your love, your devotion, and your loyalty to God in everything He created you to do and to be. The purpose of worship – God’s glory – is the foundation for who you are and everything you do.

The Bible communicates God’s truth to us and directs us how to know God. The Bible is how God communicates to you. It is fundamental to having a living, growing relationship with God.

Prayer is to spiritual growth what breath is to physical growth. Like breath, prayers of different kinds, as identified in the Bible, should be prayed all day, in and out, in and out, – silently and aloud, together and alone.

Stewardship is understanding and experiencing life as God’s steward or manager. It changes your perspective and becomes a compass for your journey of faith. Stewardship requires a basic commitment to present yourself completely to God as His humble and obedient servant, with no strings attached.

LEADERSHIP AND STAFF

Who is a Disciple?

At New Beginnings Church, we have an expectation for every person involved and are invested in effective, life-giving, disciple-making: where genuine relationships are built so that transformation can begin, where isolation stops and disciples discover true connectedness, belonging, ownership, and responsibility for New Beginnings Church.

 Our D-Groups are the main vehicle of relational depth and care. We want to go beyond the group time to actually help to mature and mentor people in the faith. We want to see people grow to greater maturity in Christ.
