AN ABLE SERMON.
Au ablo sermon was preached last
night bf Evangelist Sanders on "The
distinctive features of the church with
which I stand identified or the faith
of the disciples." That he made the
way of salvation plain snd simple to
all goes without styiug. Those noble
young ladies made the good confes-
sion. The principal points made by
Brother Zanders was; first faith iu
Christ rs the sou of God is the cen-
tral point in salvatiou; second repent-
ance toward God for a change of pur-
pose in life; third baptism by immer-
sion symbolizing the death burial
and resurectiou of our Lord and Re
dceiner; fourth work for Christ wi.h
pure heart and hand pointing others
to the Lamb of God. All are cor-'
dially iuTittd to attend the services
at 3:30 p. m. aud 8:15 p. ni. All
Christians are requested to come
and work for their Master.
