New Life Ministers

Minister William Wallace & Sis. Tracey Wallace

wallaceHello my name is Minister William Wallace. I received my BA in Biblical Studies from Carolina College of Biblical Studies. Currently, i am working on my MA in Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary. The lovely lady next to me is my wife, my bff, my friend, and mother of our children, Tracey Wallace. Tracey and I have a few simple beliefs:

  • We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Acts 4:12, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5, John 1:1-5).
  • We believe the Bible is the inerrant and inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • We believe salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ alone (Romans 3:28, John 3:16).
  • We believe the local Church is governed alone by Jesus Christ through His Word; the Bible (Ephesians 4:4-6).
  • We believe ALL believers are servants, nothing more (Philemon 1:21, 1 Corinthians 4:1, Romans 12:3).

Finally, we believe people have a lot more in common with each other than differences, and through the love that Jesus Christ has demonstrated we can learn to love anyone (Philippians 2:1-8, Romans 12:3-13).
