What We Believe as Christians:
1. Water Baptism : Full Immersion - (Mark 16:16, Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39) Christian baptism is the full immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit of a believer who repents of sins and accepts the experience of being born again. Water baptism is the symbolic acceptance of the Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Through baptism, the believers declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
Jesus Christ took water baptism and set an example for all believers.
2. Baptism in Holy Spirit : Promise of God - (Acts 1:8, 2:4,38,39, 19:1-7, Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17) Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to those who are believers and is received through their new birth in Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit gifts are manifested till rapture and is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues.
Holy Spirit is The counselor and comforter of a believer.
3. The Bible : The Word of God - (2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:15, 1 Thessolonians 2:13). The Bible consisting of the Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and revelation of His will for the salvation and final authority for all Christians.
In the beginning was The Word and The Word was with God and The Word was God.
