Our Values & Beliefs

OUR VALUES

New Mornings has a Christian Worldview.

The Bible encourages us to care for others by:

  • practically supporting those in need
  • encouraging the disheartened
  • helping children to thrive
  • practising generosity through humble service

We apply these principles to increase the capacity of communities to have good mental health.

OUR BELIEFS

We hold to the following Christian beliefs:

Scripture. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments

God. The existence of one God in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ. The deity and incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, the second person of the Holy Trinity.

Sin. The fallen, sinful and lost estate of all people.

Salvation. The salvation of men and women from the penal consequences and power of sin through the perfect obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ, His atoning death, His resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His unchanging priesthood.

The Holy Spirit. The direct work of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration of men and women, in their sanctification, and in their preservation to the heavenly Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Repentance. The necessity, in order to know salvation, of repentance towards God and of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Resurrection. The resurrection of the dead, and the final judgment of all people by the Lord Jesus Christ when he returns in glory.

The Greatest Commandment

One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22: 35-40 (New International Version of the Bible, 1984)
