What We Believe

At New Direction Church International we believe:

...Jesus Christ is the Son of  God and that He was born of a virgin birth, crucified for the sins of humanity, died and was buried. He was raised on the third day from the dead by God the father and he later ascended into Heaven, where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father. 

...Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life and there is not other method of salvation.

...Jesus Christ is the only one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit and that He by the Spirit brings men and women at salvation into the Body of Christ and eternal life

...In the authority of Jesus name

...Eternal life and eternal condemnation is real. The existence of Heaven and Hell is real.

...The Divine personhood of the Holy Spirit and his present-day ministry to believers, which includes the distribution of gifts for empowerment of service in the Body of Christ and the local church.

...Spiritual gifts are given for the perfecting of the Saints, for work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ and are given without regard to ethnicity or gender.

...The indwelling of the Holy Ghost for all Believers and that the filling of the Holy Ghost is a continuous reality as well as ongoing work for sanctification.

...Baptism of the Holy Ghost and the filling of the Holy Ghost are distinct and separate ministries of the Holy Ghost which may occur simultaneously at salvation and that baptism of the Holy Ghost only occurs once and for all at salvation.

...Filling of the Holy Ghost is an ongoing ministry of the Spirit in the life of the Believer and it may and should occur subsequent to salvation in obedience to biblical exhortation

...In the autonomy of the local church as an independent entity under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, through pastoral covering, with regards to government, polity, operations, and disciplines.

...In water baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

​...The Bible is the written and inspired Word of God without and that it is inerrant, infallible, and incorruptible seed.

...Tithes and offering should be freely given to your local church and that the New Testament teaches that "we belong to Christ" meaning everything that we have is His.

...In divine healing in the name of Jesus according to God's Word.

...The operation of the five-fold ministry of Apostle, Pastor, Prophet, Evangelist, and Teacher.
