Baptism in Water The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with him to walk in newness of life (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4).

The Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) "And when He had given thanks he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also he took the cup, after supper saying, this cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often you drink it, in remembrance of me. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup" (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25, 28).

Sanctification is a progressive act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God (Romans 12:1-2; Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12). The Scriptures teach a life of holiness "without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy for I am holy" (1 Peter 1:15-16).

The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer born of the Spirit is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).

The Ministry A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two – fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, (2) the edifying of the body of the Christ through the maturing and training of believers for ministry (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-12).

The Blessed Hope The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52).

The Final Judgment There will be a final judgment in which the wicked who are dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the Devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which is the second death. (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15; 21:8).
