The Installation Service: The Examination
This Church is a fellowship of holiness assemblies which has membership in
the universal Body of Christ. As such, we preserve the message of Christ’s redeeming love through His atonement
and we declare holiness of life to be His requirement for all men who would enter into the Kingdom of

baptism, a personal infilling of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking with other
tongues as the Spirit gives utterance; a daily walk with the Lord in the beauty of holiness, and, life after death.
