A. Water Baptism

  1. All who unite with any local church on profession of faith in Christ shall further confess Christ by receiving water baptism as early as possible.
  2. Baptism shall be administered according to the divine command of our blessed Lord, "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost (Spirit)."

B. Holy Communion

Holy communion commemorates our redemption by Christ’s death. It points to Calvary, and to the return of Jesus, whose blood cleanses us from all sin and prepares us for His blessed return (Matthew 26:17-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30).

  1. The bread and the wine should be administered to all Christians (only unfermented wine should be used).
  2. The Lord's table should be open to all who love Him, and all of the Lord's children should be invited to His table to commemorate together the death of their common Lord.
  3. This shall be administered at least once each quarter.

* Note: Foot Washing - Although foot washing is not an ordinance, the International Pentecostal Holiness Church allows its members liberty of conscience in the observance of foot washing.
