7.   THE NEW BIRTH

      We believe the change, which takes place in the heart, and life at conversion is a very real one 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20.

      We believe it is the will of God that we are sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith Hebrews 6:1.

 

9.   WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER

      We believe baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work Matthew 28:19. We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the           bread and the juice of the vine 1 Corinthians 11:24, 25.

 

10. BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

      We believe it is the will of God that we daily walk in the Spirit Ephesians 4:30-32.

 

12. THE GIFTS & FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

      We believe the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian (1 Corinthians 12:1-11) and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life Galatians 5:22.

 

13. MODERATION

      We believe the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism 1 Timothy 2:8-10; Colossians 3:17; Philippians 4:5.

 

14. DIVINE HEALING

      We believe the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17.

      We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Church of Jesus Christ Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25.

 

17. CIVIL GOVERNMENT

      We believe laws should be upheld at all times, except in things opposed to the will of God Romans 13:1-5.
