We Believe...

... that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, which reveals:

The foundational doctrines of Jesus Christ, being: repentance from dead works, faith toward God, baptism, the laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. Hebrews 6:1,2

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His miracles, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory.

In the baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4 is given to those who ask for it.

In the five-fold ministry gifts to the church, which are: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. Ephesians 4:11

In the gifts of the Holy Spirit in operation in the church. These gifts being: prophecy, tongues and interpretation of tongues, words of wisdom and knowledge, discerning of spirits, faith, healings and miracles.
I Corinthians 12-14

In the healing of the body, soul, and spirit, which was provided for us by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:24-25

That the ministry of the church is solely supported by the tithes, gifts, and offerings of the people brought into the storehouse. Malachi 3:8-10

Our theology— a closer look

Worship— Worship is perhaps best summed up in the Westminster Shorter Catechism: "What is the chief end of man? To glorify God and enjoy Him forever."

Significance of the Shofar— The shofar is a powerful symbol in the worship of the Jewish people, and continues to be so at Tabernacle of Hope.

Our Mission— A scriptural basis for our common calling to bring glory to the Lord.
