We believe that Christians are called to holiness in thought, word, and deed, and to express faith in Christ through devotion to God and through godly interaction with others.
Indwelt by the Holy Spirit, Christians are to be an example of the believers and a corrective to an evil and unbelieving generation. Pride, greed, sloth, lust, and covetousness must be opposed in the Spirit; all harmful and immoral practices, including homosexuality, must be refused in the body.
Romans 12:1, 2; Titus 2:11-13; 2 Corinthians 7:1; 1 John 2:15-17; Galatians 5:16-26; 1 Corinthians 6:15-20; Colossians 3:1-14; 1 Timothy 4:12; 1 Peter 1:13-16.
God’s people are called out of sin and corruption into a sanctified position— “us in Christ” — and a sanctified practice— “Christ is us.”
