Kevin Sepulveda and New Life Baptist Church are now aligned with the New IFB

Kevin Sepulveda started New Life Baptist Church after he was ordained by Victor Tey and the Church in Punchbowl. Originally, the church was called “The Church in Caloundra”, following Victor Tey’s naming scheme.

Kevin fell under the influence of Logan Robertson, however, and began to distance himself from Tey. Tey notably has several differences from the mainstream of the New IFB, and Sepulveda wanted to be more in with them.

The following is on the website of New Life Baptist Church:

Experience was gained at The Church in Punchbowl with assisting in the growth of a new church plant. It was there that he was ordained to the office of a Bishop on Sunday the 24th of September 2017 and sent out to establish The Church in Caloundra (now New Life Baptist Church).

Due to a number of families seeking a like-minded church in Sydney, Pastor Kevin Sepulveda has established New Life Baptist Church Sydney as a satellite church with the goal for it to become a future independent church.

Sepulveda has preached at Trinity Baptist Church in Toronto before the split from the new IFB.

In the latest New IFB directory, Sepulveda is now listed, as you can see at left. Prior to October 2018, he was not part of the list, but it is apparent that the new IFB and Steven Anderson are satisfied that he is sufficiently distant now from Victor Tey who they view as a snake and a heretic.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and baby daughter am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Comparative Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.
