The progress that Victor Houteff's followers and the church experienced up to his death in February 1955 was rooted mainly on the theology of Houteff. Some of the fundamental aspects of Houteff's theology remained in how he led his followers from California to Waco where they were to establish their ‘Mt. Carmel’ centre. These beliefs, instead of serving as justifications for previous actions, drove new actions. This chapter attempts to provide a more detailed account on Houteff's theological views whilst also drawing attention to the eschatology in which Houteff's writings were grounded. It also highlights how Houteff possessed a detailed knowledge of the Bible from which he used to construct a mosaic of passages.
