The Church

  1. The Church is the assembly of people who are saved through faith in Christ Jesus and separated themselves from the world. (Acts 2:47)
  2. Christ is the Head of the Church and Church is the Body of Christ (Colossians 1:18).
  3. The believers should gather together frequently for fellowship (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:24, 25).
  4. The only ordinances of the New Testament church are the baptism and the Lord’s Table (Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).
  5. Each believer who repents and accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour should receive water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:18-20)
  6. All believers, baptised and leading a holy life should partake in the Lord’s Table of “bread and cup” observed in remembrance of the passion and death of Jesus Christ, until He returns (1 Corinthians 11:23-32).
  7. All believers should desire for the baptism in the Holy Spirit which is the promise of God the Father. Speaking in tongues as Holy Spirit gives utterance is the visible sign of this baptism. (Acts 1:4, 5; 2:1-4)
  8. Elders and ministers are appointed in the church of Christ as overseers (1 Corinthians 2:28; Ephesians 2:20; Ephesians 4:11; 1 Peter 5:2, 3).
