Be A Church With Biblical Standards

A church in which the Bible is not the standard of faith and practice –
a Church in which repentance, faith, and holiness, are not prominently put forward as essential to salvation, – a Church in which forms, and ceremonies, and ordinance not commanded in the Bible, are the chief things urged upon the attention of the members, – such a Church is in a very diseased and unsatisfactory condition.
