“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like–minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:1-5
Newpoint Staff and Volunteers
As believers in Christ, we are united in the body of Christ and we are determined to do what is right in the eyes of the LORD. Therefore, we have entered into a covenant relationship with God and each other to do whatever it takes to love released Christian Brothers coming out of prison and disciple them in their walk with the Lord. We all acknowledge that the Newpoint House Statement of Faith accurately represents our essential beliefs and, thus, our unity in Christ.
As a Christian Brother in submission to Newpoint Partnership, I acknowledge that I am a believer in Jesus Christ and that I desire biblical structure and discipleship in order to continue to grow into the Christian believer that God intends me to be. I therefore commit, by God‘s grace, to the following:
That I will submit to the authority of Newpoint House’s Executive Director, Discipleship and Residence Director, my mentor and those whom are appointed to oversee my discipleship program.
That I will develop a servant‘s heart, out of love for my Savior, Jesus Christ. I further affirm that I will live out this servant heart through attitude and action.
That I will belong to a local church. As a member of my local church, I commit to being active in the life of the church and to utilize my gifts to further its ministry and mission.
That I agree and commit to abide by all the non-negotiable and biblical rules for living set forth and presented in the Christian Brother Discipleship Manual.
My signature below is a visible sign of commitment to this Covenant and the first steps of a joyous journey of Christian growth for me. While our Lord Jesus Christ has not physically signed this Covenant, we acknowledge that His signature is upon our hearts and lives and that the success of this Covenant relationship rests upon abiding in His Word and by His grace.
