to seek and to save that
which is lost
with the Word of God,
the Faith of God,
and the Love of God.”

  It is the will of God that every Believer be filled with the Holy Spirit.
  Healing is provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every Believer.
  The Church consists of all those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
  There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust.
  In the personal, visible, imminent return of Jesus Christ.
  In water baptism and observance of the Lord's Supper.
