Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Conditions to Salvation

Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.

Luke 24:47 [KJV/NIV]
John 3:3 [KJV/NIV]
Romans 10:13-15 [KJV/NIV]

The Evidence of Salvation

The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit.

Romans 8:16 [KJV/NIV]
The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

Ephesians 4:24 [KJV/NIV]
Titus 2:12 [KJV/NIV]


All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

Luke 24:49 [KJV/NIV]
Acts 1:4 [KJV/NIV]

This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth.

Acts 8:12-17 [KJV/NIV]
Acts 10:44-46 [KJV/NIV]

With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as:

an overflowing fullness of the Spirit,
John 7:37-39 [KJV/NIV]
Acts 4:8 [KJV/NIV]

a deepened reverence for God,
Acts 2:43 [KJV/NIV],
Hebrews 12:28 [KJV/NIV]

an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work,
Acts 2:42 [KJV/NIV]

and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost,
Mark 16:20 [KJV/NIV]


Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.

Isaiah 53:4,5 [KJV/NIV]
Matthew 8:16,17 [KJV/NIV]

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 [KJV/NIV]
Romans 8:23 [KJV/NIV]
