We believe that faith in God, repentance and baptism (by immersion) in the name of the Lord Jesus for the remission of sins and the laying on of the hands of the Elders for the reception of the Holy Spirit is the plan by which sinners may become reconciled to God or become Christians. We believe that God is unchangeable: consequently his servants may call upon him and he will answer as in days of old. And when they ask in faith and receive his Holy Spirit they may prophesy, see visions, discern spirits, do miracles, cast out devils, heal the sick, etc. — William E. McLellin
