INFALLIBLE WORD TEACHES, AND WE BELIEVE:
That Water Baptism is essential to our obedience after reconciliation
with God. Water Baptism is one immersion (not three), “in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”,
as Jesus commanded. Matthew 28:19; 3:13-17; Mark 16:15; Acts 2:38,39;
19:1-6; Romans 6:4,5.
That the Lord’s Supper was constituted by Jesus Christ so
that all believers (all members of the family of God) might partake
thereof regularly to “show the Lord’s death till He
come.” The emblems used are “unleavened bread”
and the juice of the “fruit of the vine”. Anyone who
eats and drinks unworthily brings “damnation”, punishment
and chastisement upon himself. Matthew 26:26-29; Luke 22:17-20;
I Corinthians 11:23-30.
That Entire Sanctification is a definite act of God’s grace,
subsequent to the New Birth, by which the believer’s heart
is purified and made holy. It cannot be attained progressively
by works, struggle or suppression, but it is obtained by faith
in the sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ. Holiness of life and
purity of heart are central to Christian living. Luke 1:74,75;
John 17:15-17; I Thessalonians 4:3,7,8; 5:22-24; Ephesians 5:25-27;
Hebrew 2:11; 10:10,14; 13:11; Titus 2:11-14; I John 1:7; Hebrew
12:14; I Peter 1:14-16.
That the Baptism in the Holy Ghost is the enduement with power
from on High upon the sanctified believer. It is the “promise
of the Father” and when one receives this “gift of
the Holy Ghost”, it is accompanied by the initial evidence
of speaking a language unlearned previously, referred to as speaking
in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:8;
Luke 3:16; 24:49; John 1:20-33; 7:37-39; 14:16,17,26; 15:26; 16:12-15;
Acts 1:5-8; Mark 16:17; Acts 2:1-18; 10:44-46; 19:1-6. We do not
teach or instruct people on how to speak in tongues: the Holy
Spirit gives the utterance. We also stress the necessity of Purity
That Redemption from the curse of the law, Healing of sickness
and disease as well as continued Health are provided for all people
through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. Exodus 15:26; Deuteronomy
7:15; Psalm 103:1-5; Proverbs 4:20-22; Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew
8:16,17; I Peter 2:24; Mark 16:15-18; Luke 13:16; John 15:12-14;
10:10; Acts 10:38; James 5:14-16; I John 3:8; III John 2; Galatians
That Personal Evangelism is a God-given and God-ordained ministry
for every believer. Jesus commanded, and God requires every believer
to be a compassionate and faithful soulwinner, bringing others
to Christ. Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-49; John 17:18;
Acts 1:8; 8:1-4; Psalm 126:5,6; Proverbs 11:30; Daniel 12:3; Ezekiel
That Marriage is binding for life. Monogamy is the uniform teaching
of the Bible. Polygamy is contrary to the New Testament dispensation.
No one has a right to divorce and remarry while the first companion
lives. When a person becomes converted, necessary restitution,
on this line, must be done without delay, if he has married wrongly.
