Tabernacle of Praise Christian Church

What We Believe

We believe in the Holy Scriptures: accepting fully the writing of the Old and New Testaments as the inerrant Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts and therefore altogether sufficient as our only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.  {Psalms 119:160; Proverbs 30:5a; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21}

We believe in The One True God: who is an intelligent, sovereign, spiritual, and personal Being; perfect, infinite, and eternal in His Being of holiness, love, wisdom, and power; absolutely separate from and above the world as its Creator, yet everywhere present in the world as the Upholder of all things.  He is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; three distinct persons but without division of nature, essence, or being; and each having a distinct ministry in God’s revelation to His creation and people.  {Genesis 1:1; Exodus 15:11; Psalms 83:18, 139:7-9; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30, 15:26}

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ: who is the Second Person of the Triune God, the Eternal Word and Only Begotten Son; that without any change in His Divine Person, He became a man by the miracle of the virgin birth, One Person with two natures; that as man He was tempted as we are yet without sin; that as the Perfect Lamb of God He gave Himself in death upon the cross, bearing there the sins of the world, and suffering its full penalty of divine wrath in our stead; that He arose from the grave in a glorified body; that as our Great High Priest He ascended into heaven, there to appear before the face of God as our Advocate and Intercessor.  {John 1:1, 14, 3:16; Matthew 1:18-25; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:6-10; I Corinthians 15:3-7; Hebrews 4:14-16; I John 2:1-2}

We believe in the Holy Spirit: who is the Third Person of the Trinity and the divine agent in nature, revelation, and redemption; that He convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment; that He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals, and anoints all who becomes children of God through Christ; that He further empowers, guides, teaches, sanctifies, and fills believers who daily surrender to Him.  {John 3:5, 14:16-17, 26, 16:7-14; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:13; II Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 1:13,5:18}

We believe in Salvation by Grace through Faith: that salvation is the free gift of God, neither merited nor secured in part or in whole by any virtue or work of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom all true believers have a present possession of the gift of eternal life, a perfect righteousness, kinship in the family of God, deliverance and security from all condemnation, every spiritual resource needed for life and godliness, and the divine guarantee that they shall never perish; that this salvation affects the whole man; that apart from Christ there is no possible salvation. {Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; John 1:12, 3:14, 10:28-29; Romans 8:1; Philippians 1:6}
