Salvation is by grace through faith:
Eph 2.8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the
gift of God:
Rom 3.23-24 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified
freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Repentance from sin is essential:
1 John 1.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
God is triune, Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
Matt 28.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
The Bible is the inspired, infallible, absolute authoritative
Word of God:
2 Tim 3.16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of
God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
In the New Birth, you must be Born Again:
John 3.3-6 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man
be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the
Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
2 Cor 5.17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are become new.
In Water Baptism through immersion:
Ro 6.3-5 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized
into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as
Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk
in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we
shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for power to live the Christian life on earth:
acts 1-5-8 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not
depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have
heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy
Ghost not many days hence...But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come
upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all
Judea, and in
Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
In the Institution of the Lords Supper:
1 Cor 11.23-29 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That
the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given
thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this
do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped,
saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in
remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the
Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of
the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man
examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that
eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning
the Lord's body.
In the Gifts and Fruit of the Holy Spirit in all believers:
1 cor 12.1-12 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you
ignorant...Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are
differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities

of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the
Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word
of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the
same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of
prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another
the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,
dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members,
and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Gal 5.22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
In Divine Healing for all provided through the Cross:
Is 53.4-5 Surely he hath borne our grief's, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem
him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he
was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with
his stripes we are healed.
Matt 8.16-17 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with
devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it
might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our
infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
1 Pet 2.24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead
to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
In the Second coming and catching away of the real Church, the Body of Christ:
1 Thess 4.15-18 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive
and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the
Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive
and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these
In Heaven and Hell and Final Judgment for all mankind:
Rev 20.11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead,
small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written
in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and
death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
Second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.
2 Cor 5.10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may
receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or

Matt 28.18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of

whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the
