New life

Discover new life in Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah, who came that all of us might have new life. He came to call each one of us to leave behind our old lives and to live a new life according to his own teaching and example. He also came to make this new life possible for us through his life, death and resurrection:

  • Now we can experience the forgiveness of our sins. All our guilt and shame can be wiped away. We can begin anew.
  • Now we can also receive new life by the Spirit. The Spirit makes us come alive within and empowers us to live differently, like Jesus lived.
  • We also have hope for new life in the future. Death is not the final word. We will be resurrected on the final day. Like Jesus we will be given new bodies and live forever in the presence of God.

What must you do to receive new life?

  1. Acknowledge that Jesus is the Messiah, whom God has sent to be the Savior of the world.
  2. Turn from your old life, your sins and wrongdoing, and commit to live a new life just as Jesus has taught.
  3. Receive the new life that comes through Jesus:
  • Ask God to forgive your sins
  • Ask God to give you new life by the Spirit

This is the promise of God to all of us, spoken by Jesus: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
