REPENTAN CE

Repentance is the act of acknowledging one's sins, and resolving to fully obey God. It begins when God opens one's mind to see himself in comparison with God and His law. True repentance is the first step toward reconciliation with God, and thereby toward ultimate salvation.

Acts 2:38; 3:19-21; 8:22; 1 John 3:4


LAYING ON OF HANDS

The laying on of hands is an act performed on special occasions, such as for the receiving of God's holy spirit after baptism, at ordination, anointing of the sick, or for other special purposes.

Matthew 19:13-15; Acts 6: 5-6; 8:17-18; 13:3; 1 Timothy 4:14; Hebrews 6:2


THE CHRISTI AN

A true Christian is one in whom the holy spirit is born and continues to grow so that he may be more like Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:9 ; 1 Corinthians 12:13


THE SABBA TH

The seventh day Sabbath (which is the fourth commandment)is to be taught and kept holy in accordance with biblical instruction. Instituted at creation, reaffirmed to Israel as a part of the covenant at Sinai, and taught by Jesus Christ, who is the Messenger of the New Covenant, the observance of the Sabbath is basic to a Christian's relationship with God.

Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 16; 20: 8-11; 31: 12-17; Mark 2: 27-28; Luke 4:16


BI BL E

The whole Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God containing His plan of salvation, and the record of His participation in human history. The Bible is God's revelation of knowledge that man cannot discover for himself. It is the foundation of all knowledge, and the guidebook of life. The Old and New Testaments comprise God's written Word, which forms the basis of Christianity as taught by the church and as practiced by the Christian.

Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4; John 17:17; Romans 8:16; I Corinthians 2:7-11; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17; 2 Peter 1:20


SALVA TION

Salvation is the means by which God, through Christ, saves man from the penalty of sin and gives him eternal life. This process includes one's calling, repentance, baptism, justification, receiving of the Holy Spirit, a life of faith, and obedience, and final birth into God's Kingdom as a spirit being. Salvation is a freely given gift from God through grace, with our ultimate reward being given according to our endeavours to do His will.

Matthew 16:27; John 3:16-17; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrew 6:1-
