Doctrine

The Baptism of the Holy Ghost

 We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is an experience subsequent to converson and sanctification and that tongue-speaking is the consequence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the manifestation of the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23; Acts 10:46; 19:1-6). We believe that we are not baptized with the Holy Ghost in order to be saved, but that we are baptized with the Holy Ghost because we are saved (Acts 19:1-6; John 3:5). When one receives a baptismal Holy Ghost experience, we believe one will speak with a tongue unknown to oneself according to the sovereign will of Christ. To be filled with the spirit means to be spirit-controlled as expressed by Paul in Ephesians 5:18-19. Since the charismatic demonstrations were necessary to help the early church to be successful in implementing the command of Christ, we therefore, believe that a Holy Ghost experience is mandatory for all men today.
