- The Church is a spiritual organism consisting of all true believers in this age, who have been born of the Spirit of God and who were baptized by the same Spirit into the body of Christ (Mt. 16:18; I Cor. 12:13; Eph. 4:4-6; Heb. 12:23).
- The Local Church is a body of believers in Christ who have followed the Lord through the waters of baptism, uniting together in worship, prayer, instruction, fellowship, service and the spread of the Gospel to the uttermost part of the earth (Mt. 28:18-20; Acts 2:41, 42; 14:27; Heb. 10:25).
- BAPTISM: Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit upon profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour (Mt. 28:1 8-20; Acts 8:12, 36-39, 10:47, 48, 16:32-34), and that it sets forth in picture the believer’s union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection (Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12).
- THE LORD’S SUPPER: The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the Lord’s death to be observed until He comes again, and that it should always be preceded by solemn self-examination, and that participation should be extended to all regenerated persons living in fellowship with and obedience to Jesus Christ (Mt. 26:26-30; 1 Cor. 11:23-30).
