Our Values

The purpose of NewWay Church is to honor God, influence people to follow Christ and to equip them to impact the world. We value…

You matter to God. You were created to have a relationship with God and worship Him. Everything we do at NewWay Church is designed to honor God and add value to your Christian walk.


You were made to be part of a community. There is power when like-minded people join forces to accomplish great things for the Kingdom of God.

You were made for influence— to share, give and expand. One church has limited impact. One “Church” in many locations has a greater impact.

What We Believe

1. The Bible is true and relevant today

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2. God is real and the supreme ruler

We believe there is only one true God who manifested himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. God's love is the most powerful force in the universe

We believe God loves people and wants to have a personal relationship with them. This relationship is also called “Salvation”. Salvation is a gift that comes by trusting and believing in Jesus Christ. It begins the moment you accept God’s offer of forgiveness and receive him in your life by faith. God’s love and grace makes salvation possible through Jesus’s perfect sacrifice.

4. Jesus is real, the Creator of everything, and yes, He is God

We believe in Jesus and his work to redeem people from the power of sin. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and lived a sinless life. He paid the price of sin which is death. He came back to life through the resurrection.

5. The Holy Spirit is active and in charge

We believe in the Holy Spirit working in every way in the lives of people today.

6. Heaven is real and so is Hell

We believe in both real eternal places: Heaven and Hell.

7. Baptism is more than a public act

We believe in baptism as a public demonstration of a person’s commitment to Jesus. It also has a deeper meaning. It is a way to identify ourselves to Jesus’ full ministry of his death, burial and resurrection.

8. Living on a mission and on purpose

We believe God has a purpose for everyone and that they can impact the world in a positive way.
