We believe and teach the Gospel of Christ as God’s plan for saving mankind.
That plan is as follows:
One has to hear the Gospel — “How shall they call on him whom they have not heard? And how shall they believe him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:14). “So then faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17).
One has to believe in God — “And without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and the He is a rewarder of them that seek after Him.” (Hebrews 11:6). “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:16).
One has to Repent of his sins — “The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now he commandeth men that they should all everywhere repent.” (Acts 17:30). “Nay except you repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3, 5).
One has to Confess Jesus as Lord — “Behold there is water; what doth hindereth me to be baptized? And Phillip said, if thou believeth with all they heart thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” (Acts 8:36-37).
Be baptized for the remission of sins — “Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.'” (Acts 2:38)
One should live faithfully to Christ — “… be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Rev. 2:10b). He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” (Rev. 2:7)
Baptism puts one into the church of Christ; the church you can find in the Bible (Romans 16:16). God wants all His people to exist and be a part of His church. You must live the Christian life
“Ye are an elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” – I Peter 2:9
