  3. We believe the Holy Ghost to be the ministering God of all Grace and the comforter that was promised to come into the world and these three are one.
  4. We believe that Adam by transgression fell under the curse of God's Holy Law and involved all his unborn race.

  7. We believe in the final perseverence of the saints.
  8. We believe that Baptism by immersion to be the gospel mode.
