The Christian Experience


Assurance of salvation is the privilege of all who are born again by the Spirit through faith in Christ, resulting in love, gratitude and obedience toward God. (John 10:27-29; Rom. 8:35-39)



Sanctification is dedication to God and separation from evil. In experience it is both instantaneous and progressive. It is produced in the life of the believer by his appropriation of the power of Christ's blood and risen life through the Person of the Holy Spirit. He draws the believer's attention to Christ, teaches him through the Word and produces the character of Christ within him. Believers who sin must repent and seek forgiveness through faith in the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. (2 Cor. 6:14; 7:1; John 17:17,19; Heb. 10:10,14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Tim. 2:19-22; 1 Pet. 1:14-16; Rom. 6:11,13,14,18; 1 Cor. 13; Gal. 5:22,23; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; 1 John 1:9; 2:1-2)



The baptism in the Holy Spirit is an experience in which the believer yields control of himself to the Holy Spirit. Through this he comes to know Christ in a more intimate way, and receives power to witness and grow spiritually. Believers should earnestly seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. The initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. This experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the experience of the new birth. (Matt. 3:11; Acts 1:5; Eph. 5:18; John 16:13-15; 2 Cor. 3:18; Acts 1:8; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2 Cor. 3:18; Acts 1:8; Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46)



The gifts of the Spirit are supernatural abilities given by God through the exercising of which believers are enabled to minister effectively and directly in particular situations. They serve the dual function of building up the Church, and of demonstrating the presence of God within His Church. (1 Cor. 12:4-11; 1 Cor. 12:7; 14:12,24-25)



Divine healing provided in the atonement of Christ is the privilege of all believers. Prayer for the sick and gifts of healing are encouraged and practised. (Matt. 8:16,17; 1 Cor. 12:28-30; James 5:14)
