We believe that all God's people must be holy, because God is holy and requires holiness of His people. The word holy
, when speaking about people, means separated from sin, uncleanness, abomination, and common things, and set apart to serve God. We become holy or sanctified by the blood of Jesus when we are saved. After that, we must continue to be holy by living holy lives. A life of holiness and obedience to God is not optional to Christians but is commanded by Jesus Christ and the apostles as a requirement for those who will enter God's kingdom. Holiness is not a prerequisite to but is evidence and result of salvation, and therefore it must always be present among those who are saved. We must be holy in all our conduct—in how we walk before God, how we treat other people, how we dress, and how we treat our own bodies. The book of Leviticus is the primary book of God's standards of holiness. Мembers of the Church of God are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, as the Christ teaches. Their light must shine before the people, so that people see their good deeds and glorify the Heavenly Father. The members of God's Church must not love the world, nor that of the world, and should not lead a worldly lifestyle, nor should they do anything that is contrary to the sound teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. Believing wives should obey their husbands, and should not decorate themselves with fancy hairstyles, jewelry, or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, as the Scripture teaches. They should dress in decent clothes, with modesty and chastity, keep silent in the church, learn in silence, and not dominate men. Women must cover their heads when praying or prophesying. Believing men should treat their wives wisely with love, and pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. Men should not cover their heads when praying or prophesying.
