- We believe that love one for another as Jesus loves the believer manifests our discipleship, proves our love for God & symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches. Love is therefore the great commandment of the LORD Jesus Christ upon which all others are dependent John 5:1-3; Rev. 2:4, 5).
- We believe in the infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible & that the Bible is the all-sufficient rule of faith & practice160; 2 Tim 3:16, 17).
