Ordinances

There are seven ordinances as described below:

1. Dedication:
Infants and children are presented for dedication in the presence of worshipping congregation, by the priests of the new covenant, as mentioned in the old and the New Testament.

2. Water Baptism:
The Ordinances of Baptism by immersion in water (Matthew 28:19) shall by administered to all those who have repented of their sins and who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and gave a clear evidence of their salvation. Romans 6:3‑5, Colossians 2:12.

3. Holy Communion:
The Ordinance of the Lord's supper, shall be observed regularly as enjoined by the Scriptures. I Corinthians 11:23‑26.

4. Wedding:
Wedding vows between bride and the groom who have confessed their faith in Lord Jesus Christ must be made in the presence of worshipping congregation at the Holy altar before the priest of the living God, as per discipline and standards mentioned in the Bible. We believe that marriage is exclusively the legal union of one genetic male and one genetic female sanctioned by the state and evidenced by a marriage ceremony.

5. Funerals:
Christian Funeral, is considered as a "Home Going Service", because we believe in the resurrection of Christ and that He shall come again, when the dead in Christ shall rise.

6. Laying on of Hands:
Laying on of Hands for the purpose of blessing, anointing, healing the sick, imparting the gifts of the Spirit, recognizing the call of God and setting apart those that are called into the ministry.

7. Celebration of Christian feasts:
The  feasts in the Old Testament have parallels in the New Testament and will be celebrated as per New Testament standard. This corporation celebrates Christian feasts. Jewish feasts are celebrated for the sake of remembrance and teaching.
