Believer's water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. (Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-39; Acts 16:31-33, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25; Acts 22:16)

Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church and this church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs. (Ephesians 1:22, Colossians 1:18)

There will be the personal and premillennial coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this "Blessed Hope" has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. (Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Titus 2:13, 14)

Only those who are members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church. (Acts 2)

The baptism of the Holy Spirit takes place at the time of conversion and is the act of placing the believer into the body of Christ. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not a second work of grace, nor were the signs gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing, ever the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling. (Ephesians 1:13; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 12:13)

The indwelling and regeneration of the believer by the Holy Spirit and inclusion into the body of Christ is permanent. (Ephesians 1:13; Romans 8:1)
