        11. His millennial reign

    Salvation of man
        1. The blood of Jesus Christ, grace through faith, the belief that Jesus was raised from the dead, and the confession that Jesus Christ is the Lord
        2. Water baptism, an ordinance of the church, is a public declaration identifying a believer with Jesus in His death and resurrection. Therefore, believers will have a new life with the power of God. The Lord’s Supper, an ordinance of the church, represents the broken body and the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the new covenant between God and men

        2. Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts, manifests God’s power to bring repentance and to convict the world of guilt in regard to sin, righteousness, and judgment.
        3. Will pour out His Spirit on all people. Men and women will prophesy, dream dreams, and see visions in those days
        4. Holy Spirit comes on us according to the Father’s promise. We will receive power and be Jesus witnesses to the ends of the earth.
        5. Baptizes us with His Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues

    Church:
        1. Christ is the head of the Church, and He is the Savior of the body; The Church is the body of Christ.
        2. Is a group of people who are called out, set apart from the world, and saved by Jesusblood
        3. Jesus was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
