… In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.
…In the Blessed Hope – the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming.
…The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
…Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
…In water baptism by immersion.
… The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
… The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
