Our Values

New Way Church is founded upon and guided by the following twelve values:

  • The Authority of God. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the one and only God, and that the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Heavenly Doctrines are His Word, and should be the foundation of all the Church does.
  • Good and Truth. We teach truths, and use those truths to help people to live good and useful lives.
  • Love. New Way is intended to be a community of people who love and serve one another, so that together the community may love and serve the rest of the Lord’s children.
  • Marriage. We value marriage between a man and a woman and honor the unique, complimentary nature of each gender.
  • Endurance. We believe a healthy congregation has the ability to continue on despite outside events, despite the change of pastor, and despite the change of culture within the group.
  • Growth. We believe a healthy congregation has the intent to grow, in depth of involvement and in numbers involved.
  • Fruitfulness. We believe a healthy congregation will eventually spawn, sponsor, and/or support additional fledgling congregations and missions, and will become a net producer of future ministers and pastors.
  • Sovereignty and Freedom. We believe a healthy congregation is not financially beholden to other organizations, denominations, corporations or individual benefactors, although it may associate freely with them.
  • Harmony. We believe a healthy congregation has a focused purpose and unified mission around which there is a small harmony of goals that its membership organizes itself around and clearly agrees to.
  • Useful Service. We believe a healthy congregation is outward focused and service-oriented, leading to a compassionate dedication to serving not just one another, but those outside the organization.
  • Doctrinal Integrity. We believe a healthy congregation keeps a fearless, unapologetic adherence to the principle teachings of New Christianity regarding the Lord, the Word, and the life of charity.
  • Church Planting. We launch new, healthy congregations that share our values, and we inspire, instruct, support and advise others who are also called to do so.
