What We Believe

The Trinity//The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They have always existed in perfect unity and communion. There has never been a time when they were not in complete fellowship.

Original Blessing//God's redemptive plan and grace which was known by God before the creation of humans and before sin entered the world. Original blessing is the truth that God has chosen to be in a relationship with us, and God has chosen to stay faithful to that relationship no matter what.

Reconciliation//"God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting their sin's against them" (2 Cor. 5:19). God has never been against humanity. God has always been a lover and pursuer of all people. God has never separated Godself from humanity. God separating from humanity is a myth. We haven't always known this, but now we do because of Jesus Christ.

The Cross//The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was the ultimate expression of the self-sacrificing nature of our God, Who is by nature a generous servant of humanity.

The Word of God//Jesus is the ultimate Word of God and the Scriptures bear witness to Him. We love and cherish the Scriptures, believing them to be primarily an inspired account of God's relationship to His people.

The Church// New Song celebrates all diversity and uniqueness within the Body of Christ. Our hearts go out to anyone who has been rejected or hurt by a church.
