Section 6.  Angelic Beings

A. Holy Angels are spirit beings possessing the characteristics of personality.

They were directly created in the opening moments of creation as holy beings, and have been assigned various tasks in fulfilling God’s purposes upon the earth.

B. The Devil, or Satan We believe in the reality and personality of Satan, the Devil; and that he was created by God as an angel but through pride and rebellion became the enemy of his Creator; that he became the unholy god of this age and the ruler of all the powers of darkness and is destined to the judgment of an  eternal  justice  in  the  lake  of  fire.
