GOD IS A MISSIONAL GOD.
He is declaring His glory to every nation, and calls us to join Him.
GOD USES THE LOCAL CHURCH.
It is His primary means of making disciples of all the nations.
GOD CALLS US TO MISSIONAL LIVING EVERYWHERE…
All the time – not just on a mission trip.
GOD IS CONCERNED AS MUCH ABOUT WHAT HE DOES IN US AS HE IS WITH WHAT HE DOES THROUGH US.
Establishing new multiplying churches that transform their communities and reach the nations
Equipping the NEXT generation to lead the church to make disciples locally and around the world
Learning to live in the story not just read about the story
THE NEXT GENERATION
God is stirring a desire in the hearts of students and young adults to be contributors to God’s kingdom, not simply consumers of Christianity.
NEXT Worldwide is committed to working across denominations and with churches and leaders of different backgrounds. However, there are some crucial points of doctrine which must be adhered to by every person who partners with us.
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit–and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory.
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live godly lives.
We believe in the divine verbal inspiration of the Scriptures. The whole Bible, in the original manuscripts, is without error. As the revelation of God, we believe the Bible to be the sole authority and sufficiency with regard to Christian faith and practice.
We believe that man was originally created in the image of God. Adam fell through sin, and as a consequence of his sin, lost his spiritual life. This spiritual death, or total depravity of human nature, has been transmitted to the entire human race of man, the Man Christ Jesus alone being excepted. Thus every person is born into the world with a nature that is essentially and unchangeably sinful apart from divine grace.
We believe that, due to universal death through sin, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless born again. Our redemption has been accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus. We believe that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in Christ. No other acts, such as confession, baptism, prayer, faithful service, or manifestation of certain spiritual gifts, are to be added to believing as a condition of salvation.
