That the prime agency for the work of God’s kingdom is the Christian local church functioning under
the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ to fulfill the Great Commission of preaching the Gospel to
make and baptize disciples of all nations. The church has been entrusted with the ordinances of
Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit which includes: the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an
experience distinct from regeneration; his indwelling, by which the Christian is enabled to live a
godly life; his supernatural gifting and empowering of the church for its work, life, and worship.
Luke 24:49 |Acts 1:4–8 | Acts 2:1–4 | Acts 10:44–46 | 1 Corinthians 12:1–31 | 1 Corinthians 14:1–40

the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the
resurrection of damnation.
