The Church is the spiritual family of God (Ephesians 3:14-15; 1 Timothy 3:5) on earth which exists continually (Hebrews 10:25) to spread the good news of abundant life from Jesus Christ. It is also often called the “Body of Christ” which is made up of believers all serving Him (1 Corinthians 12). It is designed to serve and glorify God.
Worship is the exaltation of God by a human being through obedience in any area. Giving tithes is worship. Singing songs and playing instruments (see the Psalms) is definitely worship as long as the object of the thought, action, or song is God Almighty (Romans 12:1).
We believe that marriage is a covenant between a man-born-from-birth and a woman-born-from-birth and God Almighty. The joining is spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and financial for a lifetime. A relationship with Jesus Christ is the only foundation that will enable a marriage to thrive. Marriage is the foundation of the family as God has created it (Genesis 2:18, 21-24; Matthew 19:3-12; 1 Corinthians 7:1-40; Colossians 3:18-19, 13:4-8; Ephesians 5:21-33).
We immerse in baptism. We believe that the mode of baptism should be followed from the example of Jesus (Matthew 3:13-15) and the practice of the early Church (Acts 8:36, 10:48, 18:8, 19:3-5). The early Church immersed (not sprinkled) people who confessed Christ (not infants). We follow this practice. In baptism, we are spiritually brought into contact with Christ’s death (Romans 6:3-4) and we begin new life in Him.
