Christ shed His blood for the remission of sins that are past (Romans 3:25;
1John 1:7), for the regeneration of penitent sinners, and for salvation
from sin and from sinning (Ephesians 2:1-10; 1John 3:5-10).
We teach and firmly maintain the scriptural doctrine of
justification by faith alone through the blood (Romans 3:24-25; Romans
5:6-9; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14).
Jesus Christ shed His blood for the complete cleansing of the justified
believer from all in dwelling sin and from its pollution subsequent to regeneration
(John 17:17; Acts 26:18; Romans 6:6; 1Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12;
that sanctification is the second definite instantaneous
work of grace, obtainable by faith on the part of the fully justified
believer (Exodus 31:13; Leviticus 11:44-45; Leviticus 20:7-8; St.
Luke 24:50-51; Hebrews 10:9-14).
that the Pentecostal baptism of the Holy Ghost and
Fire is obtainable by a definite act of appropriating faith on the
part of the wholly sanctified believer, and that the initial evidence
of the reception of this experience is speaking with other tongues
as the spirit gives utterance (Acts 1:5; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 8:14-17;
Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6).

Psalm 103:3; Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:14-15; Acts 8:7;
in the imminent personal pre-millennial second coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ (1Thessalonians 4:15-18; Titus 2:13; 2Peter

Spiritualists, Unitarians, Universalists, and Mormons. We deny as false
the teachings of the Seventh Day Adventists (Galatians 3:11; Colossians
2:16-17), Annihilation of the Wicked, Conditional Immortality and Anti-nomianism,
Absolute Perfection, teaching against an organized church, the Resurrection
Life, the Redemption of Glorification of the body in this life, and
the doctrine of restitution of all things as set forth in Millennial
Dawnism, Jehovah Witness and the false teaching that we are not born
of God until we are sanctified wholly (Mark 9:43-45; Revelation 20:10-14),
Roman Catholicism (Matt. 17:5), the belief systems and practices of

20:6, 27; Deuteronomy 18:10-13; Acts 8:9-24; Acts 16:16-19; Galatians
