What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Rehoboth New Life based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these Biblical doctrines.


1.  There is one God, existing eternally in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7)

2.  God is Love and He loves all people.  It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed, or orphaned and to heal the brokenhearted. (Psalm 68:5-6; I John 4:16)


The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man's problems. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin.  Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God. (Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5)


We can have a personal relationship with God through Salvation, God's free gift to man.  It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God's unearned favor.  By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:2)


1. We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17)

2. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God.  He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God's will. (Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4)

Spiritual Gifts

God gives all believers spiritual gifts.  They are for the strengthening of God's people (the church) and proof of God's existence and power to unbelievers.  The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. (I Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10)


Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God's character to be developed in us.  
(Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25)


1. The Bible describes hell as a real place.  It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ.  God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.  
(Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18)

2. Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to heaven for eternity.  
(Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28


Divine Healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins). (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16)

Christ's Second Coming

In the Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years.  This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

(Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7; Revelation 19:11-14; Revelations 20:1-6; Ezekiel 37:21-22; Zephaniah 3:19-20; Romans 11: 26-27; Isaiah 11:6-9; Psalm 72:3-8; Micah 4:3-4)


Marriage is the spiritual, physical, and civil union of one male/man as a husband to one female/woman as the wife in a biblically created and designed sacred, covenant relationship the God ordained purposes of life-long companionship, exclusive heterosexual intimacy, and procreation (the conception, birth, and subsequent raising/training of children).

(Genesis 1:27-28; Genesis 2:18-24; Leviticus 18:18-20; Proverbs 5:15-19; Matthew 19:5-6; Romans 7:2-3; Hebrews 13:4)
