All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire, for the endument of power for service, according to the command of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it came the enduement of power in life and service, the bestowing of the gifts and their use in the work of the ministry. Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, 1 Cor. 12:1-31. This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Acts 2:38, 10:44-46, 11: 14· 16, 15:7-9.
8. THE EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST:
The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public life of testimony and service. Acts 2:4, 10:44-46, Acts 1:8, 2:42-43.
9. ENTIRE SANCTIFICATION:
The scriptures teach a life of peace, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command, "Be ye Holy, for am Holy." Entire sanctification is the will of God for all in obedience to God's word. Heb. 12:14, 1 Peter 1: 15-16, 1 Thess. 5:23-24, 1 John 2:6. &15-16.
10. THE CHURCH:
A. The Church is the body and bride of Christ, the habitation of God through the spirit, with divine appointments for 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. Heb 12:23, Eph. 1:22, 2: 19-22.
B. We reject replacement theology. Eze 37, Rom 11:11-29, Matt 5:18.
11. THE MINISTRY AND EVANGELISM:
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 Christ. Mark 16:15-20.
12. DIVINE HEALING:
Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. Isa. 53:4-5, Matt. 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:14.
13. 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 imminent and is the blessed hope of the church. I Thess. 4: 13-5: 11, Roman 8: 13, 1 Cor. 15:51-58.
