ALL APPLICANTS MUST AGREE WITH AFRICA NEW LIFE MINISTRIES’ STATEMENT OF FAITH.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Holy Scripture is God’s own word, written by men as the Holy Spirit inspired them to write. It is an infallible record of God’s self-disclosure to mankind. The Scriptures are the authoritative and normative rule and guide of all Christian life, practice, and doctrine( 2 Peter 1: 20 –21; 2 Timothy 16-17).
We believe that there is but one God, eternal, infinite, perfect, and unchangeable. God is one in His essential being, but in this one being there are three persons, called, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Gen. 1:26; 11:7; Matt. 28:19; Like 3:21, 22; John 14 -16.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God. He became man when conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matt. 1:18) in order that He might redeem the sinful man. Christ become man without ceasing to be God. Christ redeemed man by voluntarily giving himself as a sinless substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, to satisfy God’s judgment against sin. Matt. 20:28; John 1: 29; Rom 3:25.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the giver of life, convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment (John 16. 8-11). Through the proclamation of the Gospel He persuades men to repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord. He gives birth to new life and dwells in the life of the regenerate (John 3:5-6). The Holy Spirit has come to glorify the Son, who in turn came to glorify the Father. He leads the believer into understanding and applying the truth of God’s word (John 14:15-17, 25, 26).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the active agent in our sanctification and seeks to produce his fruit in us (Gal. 5: 5:22-23). Though indwelling sin remains a reality, the Spirit of God comes to lead to the knowledge of the Lord. In addition to regeneration and sanctification, the Holy Spirit also empowers believers to serve the body of Jesus Christ. While all believers are indwelt by the Holy Spirit at conversion, the scriptures clearly show the going empowering of the Spirit.
We believe that one is saved by grace of God and not by character, law or good works. The death and resurrection of Christ are adequate for salvation of all and offered to all. However, salvation is appropriated only by faith in Christ. Those who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are born again, adopted into the family of God, and receive the gift of eternal life. John 3:16; Romans 3:21-25.
We believe that the same Jesus who ascended to heaven (Acts 1:9-11) will come back. The dead in Christ will resurrect from the rest of the dead, and the living believers who will be alive at the time of His coming shall be caught up in the air to Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Please submit cover letter, resume, references and writing sample (explained below) to email@example.com.
Included in application, please include a writing sample of a business letter using the following scenario:
A business letter needs to be written to a donor, Sam & Jill Johnson, who give $100/month, which is set up as a pledge that runs automatically each month on their credit card. The donation is currently going towards construction of a new high school building, but fundraising for that project is now complete. Construction is underway and we want to offer them a few options for redirecting that donation. Ideally, we want the donation to keep coming in and to send it towards our next new construction project: a medical clinic. Alternatively, the donor could direct their monthly donation to a farming project on the school property or sponsor an orphan. Of course, we’re grateful for their donation and there is no obligation that the donation must continue. We need to have direction on this donation by November 15.
Write a business letter from Africa New Life to this donor:
Sam and Jill Johnson
