All candidates for baptism shall have the right of choice between the various modes as practised by the various 4 evangelical denominations.
Look at His government of the children of Israel; at Sinai, laws are given, commandments delivered, and specifications are laid out with most positive command to "see thou makest all things according the pattern shown thee in the mount." When we come to the works of Christ and His apostles, we observe the same care for a simple but sufficient form of church government. Where there are three or more persons in one place desiring to be organized into a Pentecostal Holiness Church, 5 they shall call for a person properly authorized to organize such a church, and he shall read and explain the Basis of Union, general rules and government of The Pentecostal Holiness Church; and after prayer, he shall take the names of those desiring membership. He shall provide the elements of the Lord's Supper; see that the church is warmed and lighted, that proper persons are 9 appointed to conduct services, that financial remuneration is provided for those engaged in the work of the church, that proper literature is circulated-among the members, that no unscriptural doctrine is preached, and that order is maintained in the church. It shall be the duty of the Trustees to hold in trust the church property, and not to allow the church property to be used for any purpose that does not meet the approval of a majority of its members. It shall be the duty of the Secretary and Treasurer to keep a faithful record of all the business proceedings of the church, and an account of all monies received, including all collections for whatever cause, and for what causes the same was paid out.

We deny, as false and unscriptural, Seventh-Day Adventism, annihilation of the wicked, conditional immortality, antinomianism, absolute perfection, so-called come-outism, the so-called resurrection life, the so-called redemption or glorification of the body in this life, the doctrine of the restitution of all things, as set forth in millennial-dawnism, and the teaching that we are not born of God until we are sanctified wholly. The Lord says, "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled," and The Pentecostal Holiness Church firmly holds that there are certain relations between husband and wife which are strictly private according to the Word of God, and into this sacred privacy no one has any right to inquire (Heb. It points us to Calvary, and to the return of Jesus, whose blood cleanseth us from all sin and prepares us for His blessed coming again.
The stars are all placed in order; the sun and moon have their tabernacles; the solar system is a display of God's wonderful arrangement. It should be administered to all Christians in both kinds, and unfermented wine only shall be used.
