Jimmy and Judith Hernandez are the Lead Pastors for New Life Church in Georgetown, Texas. They love God & love people. After serving in ministry for the last 18 years, they felt the call to lead New Life Church.
They are passionate about expanding the local church in an authentic, relational and creative way to share the message of Jesus to families from the neighborhood to the nations.
The Bible: We believe and accept the Bible alone as the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit; the final authority on all matters of faith and life, superior to conscience and human reason; to which nothing can be added or taken away, which is the power of God unto Salvation to the Believers. 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16; Romans 1:16
God: We believe there is only one living and true God, eternal with unlimited power, Creator of all things, and in the one God, are three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:6; Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7
Jesus Christ: We believe that the historical Jesus Christ is God incarnate –– made flesh through the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man; that He is the only Savior who suffered physical death through crucifixion, not only for original sin imputed to man, but also for the actual sins of man, was buried, and resurrected to life. John 1:14; Luke 1:27-35; 1 Peter 3:18
Satan: We believe in the existence of Satan, a fallen angel of God and organizer of evil spirits seeking to control mankind, who is defeated by the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Is. 14:12; 4 Peter 2:4; Ephesians 6:11-18; Daniel 10:12, 13
Humanity and Sin: We believe man was created good and upright in the likeness and image of God, but by voluntary transgression, fell and the only hope is in Jesus Christ. Genesis 1: 26-31; 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-23
Salvation: We believe in the Salvation of man through the new birth by grace alone, through faith alone, through Christ alone. John 3:16; 1 John 5:11; John 3:5
Sacrament of Baptism: We believe disciples of Jesus Christ are baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as a sign of God’s unconditional love, and a seal of burial with Christ observed by all who have repented of their sins and believe that Christ as Savior died for their sins. Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47
Sacrament of Holy Communion: We believe in the sacrament of Holy Communion consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, symbolizing the spiritual body and blood of our Lord and remembrance of His suffering and death. 1 Corinthians 11:20; Matthew 26:16-29; 1 Corinthians 11:26
We believe in the Apostles’ Creed, which did not acquire its name because it was produced by the apostles themselves, but rather, because it contains a summary of the core beliefs of their teachings as revealed in the Bible.
The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
