Baptism of the Holy Ghost
We believe that the receiving of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, being born of the Spirit, is an essential part of New Testament salvation. Without the baptism of the Holy Ghost it is impossible to enter the kingdom of God (St. John 3:5). The baptism of the Holy Ghost is evidenced by speaking in other tongues (other languages) as the Spirit of God gives utterance. If this supernatural manifestation does not take place, one has not received the Holy Ghost. The gift of tongues is given by the Lord to those who have received the baptism of the Holy Ghost (a prerequisite) God gives gifts as it pleases Him (I Corinthians 14:4-28). The gift of the Holy Ghost and the Gifts of the Spirit are different spiritual concepts.
The Lord’s Supper (Communion)
We firmly believe that the first communion which was served by Melchizedek, the Priest of the Most High God, to our father Abraham, consisted of bread and wine (Genesis 14: 18). Jesus Christ took the ingredients for His supper (the Lord’s supper) with His disciples from the Passover table, which had among other items, unleavened bread and wine (Exodus 12: 1-15); Matthew 26: 17-26-30; I Corinthians 11 :21-32). Using regular bread, salt crackers, unit biscuits, water and grape juice are modern biblical substitutes invented by the formal church.
