We believe in SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD: that since our Christian citizenship is in heaven, as the children of God we should walk in separation from this present world, having no fellowship with its evil ways (Philippians 3:20; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Romans 12:2; Ephesians 5:11), abstaining from all worldly amusements and unclean habits which defile mind and body (Luke 8:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:22; 1 Timothy 5:6; 1 Peter 2:11; Ephesians 5:3-11; Colossians 3:17; Ephesians 5:3-5,18; 1Corinthians 6:19-20). We also believe in the Biblical command to separate entirely from ecclesiastical apostasy, and that the believer's separation is to be unto the Lord in whole-hearted devotion to the cause of Christ (1 John 2:15-17; John 4:1; 2 Corinthians 6:11-18).
