World Impact Newark

Organization Description: 

World Impact is a Christian missions organization serving the poor in the inner cities of America. World Impact‚’s mission is to transform our cities by planting as many churches as quickly as possible. We have served in Newark since 1976 with ministries that include a mission school, a community referral service, a summer day camp and an after school program. World Impact also has teams that run Bible studies for children, teens and adults as part of its church planting ministries. As you can see from the enclosed Newark News, World Impact ministries have benefitted hundreds of people from Newark.

One of the shining stars of our Newark ministry is the Newark Christian School (K 6), started in 1984. We offer a quality education for families who could not otherwise afford private schooling. Our classes are kept small to allow for maximum student teacher interaction. We utilize a sliding scale tuition (based on family income) that starts at only $100 per year. Academic achievement is not a requirement for acceptance into Newark Christian School, but most of our graduates go from our school to succeed at some of the more prestigious public and private schools.

We have a dynamic ministry serving un-churched youth in the central community of Newark.
We have a ministry for junior high school students called Timothy that meets every Tuesday night and a senior high ministry called Barnabas that meet every Friday night. They meet at the World Impact center for Bible study, food, and fun games. These weekly meetings serve as a resting place for youth to be themselves, have fun, and learn more about the Word and what it means to follow our Lord. We also host a weekly children‚’s ministry, known as the King‚’s Kids. The clubs meet on Saturdays for recreational and instructional games, instruction in the Word, evangelism and discipleship.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

There is one living and true God, infinitely perfect in glory, wisdom, holiness, justice, power and love, one in His essence but eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. God sovereignly created the world out of nothing, so that His creation, while wholly dependent upon Him, neither comprises part of God, nor conditions His essential perfection (Genesis 1:2; Matthew 28:19,20).

The books which form the canon of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, the only infallible rule of faith and practice (II Timothy 3:16).

God created man in His own image, in a state of original righteousness, from which man subsequently fell by a voluntary revolt, and consequently is guilty, inherently corrupt and subject to divine wrath.

Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, became man without ceasing to be God by uniting to His divine nature a true human nature in His incarnation, and so continues to be both God and man, in two distinct natures and one person, forever. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, exhibited His deity by manifold miracles, fulfilled the requirements of the Law by His sinless life, shed His blood as a vicarious and propitiatory atonement for man's sin, was resurrected from the dead in the same body, now glorified. He ascended into heaven and now intercedes in glory for His redeemed as our great high priest and advocate, and as the Head of the Church and Lord of the individual believer (Matthew 1:20,21; John 1:1-14; Romans 3:21-26; 5:6-11; I Peter 3:18; I John 2:1,2; Luke 24; Acts 1:9; Hebrews 8:1).

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement, through the ministry of regeneration and sanctification applies salvation and places believers into the Church, guides and comforts God's children, indwells, directs, gifts and empowers the Church in godly living and service in order to fulfill the great commission, and seals and keeps the believer until Christ returns (John 16:1-33; I Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:13,14).

Every person, regardless of race or rank, who receives the Lord Jesus Christ by faith is born into the family of God and receives eternal life. This occurs solely because of the grace of God and has no ground in human merit.

The Holy Church is the one institution specifically ordained of God to function in the furthering of the Kingdom until Christ comes again. It consists of all those regenerated by the Spirit of God, in mystical union and communion both with Christ, the head of the Body, and with fellow-believers. Neighborhood congregations are the local manifestation of the Church universal. In obedience to the command of Christ, these congregations preach the word of God, equip God's people for the work of ministry, and administer the Lord's Supper and Baptism.

The Lord Jesus Christ will return bodily, visibly and personally to receive His own, to conform believers to His own image and to establish His millennial kingdom. He will judge the living and the dead and will effect a final separation of the redeemed and the lost, assigning unbelievers to eternal punishment and believers to eternal glory, enjoying conscious fellowship with Him (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:50-58; Revelation 20:4-6).

Man's chief end in life is to honor and glorify Almighty God. Personal salvation is a means to this end.
