And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved (Acts 2:47b).
I believe that the Church, (The Body of Christ) is a spiritual entity made up of all believers of this present age (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-27). I believe in water baptism for all believers by immersion as a testimony to Christ and identification with Him, and the Lord's Supper as a remembrance of Christ's death and shed blood (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42, 18:8; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). Through the church, believers are to be taught how to love , obey, live a lifestyle shaped by the Gospel, and how to serve the Lord. They also are to testify concerning their faith in Christ as Savior and to honor Him by holy living. I believe in the Great Commission as the primary mission of the Church. It is the obligation of all believers to witness, by word and life, to the truths of God's Word. The gospel of the grace of God is to be preached to all the world (Matthew 28:19-20;Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20).
