Dress Code

Our Church does not have a dress code. The Saints throughout the world have been making this statement and many of us have heard it . This is an untrue statement for the Christian/Saints. As Saints we should continue to effect holiness by presenting ourselves as an example for the world. Dressing any kind of way will defeat the purpose.

The church should seek to understand the Word of God as recorded in 1 Timothy  2:9-10 and 1 Peter 3:3 and it is not designed to take away your desire to dress comely, but rather suggest that you dress as becometh holiness. If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that Saints should always make a different.

In recent years we hardly recognize the holiness church because of the way many are dressed. Styles have become too promiscuous and the Christian witness has been removed. There should be evidence of the difference between holy and unholy, and between clean and unclean.

We as Christians/Saints should seek to fulfill the mission of the church and that we too, can walk by the same rule and mind the same things as holy people of God. Let us lift up a standard of holiness to its highest height. Let us always present ourselves as a Saint that represent Jesus Christ. We should be temperate in all things. In closing, when you dress ask yourself, how would I dress if I was going before King Jesus Christ?
