which is the Bride of Christ. (Eph. 5:25-27)

7.

We believe that sexual purity is a necessary expression for all of God's children and requires abstinence from adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, or other sexual relationships

to the grave. (Gen. 1:27; Psalm 139:13-14)

11.

by believers, witnesses to the saving power of the gospel, to Christ's presence in His church, and looks forward to His victorious return. (I Cor. 11:23-26)

of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.
