Beliefs

Every church has its own identity. While we embrace any church that believes the Bible and declares that “Jesus is Lord!”, we also understand that each house of God has its own style, its own ministries, its own focus, and its own structure. The Bible, the Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. In this section, we share a bit about who we are, what we believe, and what we value, in the hopes that it will give you a little more undertanding of what New Salem is all about. 

God

There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three Manifestations:  Father, Son, Holy Spirit. 

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures.  Furthermore, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

The Holy Spirit

The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and sacrifice.

Man

Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Salvation

The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

The Return of Jesus Christ

The personal, premillenial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the purpose life and service of the believer.

The Future

There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

The Church

The Church The true Church is composed of all such persons, who though saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.

Baptism and Communion

Water Baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life and the Lord’s Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ:  all true believers and only believers should share in it.
