At New Westside, we're a Progressive Church that believes:
…Jesus Christ is the Son of GOD, that HE was conceived of the Holy Spirit and birthed through a virgin birth. While obediently serving GOD through teaching all how to enter into a right relationship with GOD, HE performed many miracles; healing and delivering all that would choose to believe in HIM. HE was crucified, died and buried. Early on the third day, HE rose from the dead and later ascended into Heaven, where HE remains at the right Hand of GOD Almighty.
…after death, eternal life begins either in Heaven or Hell. GOD has provided us with free will, therefore where you spend eternity is based upon your decision to accept Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior.
…that when the Rapture takes place, the dead in Christ will rise first, and then those who are alive and remain (those that choose to accept Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior) will be caught up to meet HIM in the air.
…the Bible to be the written and inspired WORD of GOD by GOD to man.
…faith is appropriating (acting on, living out) the WORD of GOD in our daily lives.
…in water baptism and baptism of the Holy Spirit in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit evidenced by signs and wonders.
…in divine healing- the restoration of health to those who believe and act upon the truths promised in GOD’s WORD. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Healer and by HIS finished works we are already healed.
…in the New Covenant that GOD promised. “That HE will be merciful and gracious toward our sins and HE will remember our deeds of unrighteousness no more (we have been forgiven).”
…finances are not our own, therefore our tithes and offerings should be given cheerfully to your local church for the House of GOD. The local church is the place of membership where GOD has called you to receive HIS WORD on a consistent basis and to grow spiritually.
…being spirit-led in giving alms to the poor, sick, homeless and others in despair.
