Welcome to this page outlining the core beliefs of Pentecostal Tabernacle (PT). As you peruse our beliefs, consider that God’s mission for PT is to restore broken lives – and all of our lives have been broken. God’s great love draws every one of us to Himself, gives us a heart to receive His truth from His Word, and forgives and heals us as we trust in Him.We invite you to join us on this journey of restoration!

We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God, and are the revelation of God to man. They are the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21).

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (II Corinthians 13:14).

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, to which all of the following supernatural associations attest: His miracles, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the right hand of God, His personal and future return to the earth.

We believe that man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47, John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8-9).

We believe in divine justification, a judicial act of God whereby He justly declares righteous the individual who believes in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior (Romans 3:28, 5:1).

We believe that baptism by full immersion is commanded in the scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord should be baptized. In this way, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. This ordinance should be administered by full immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47,48; Romans 6:4).

We believe that all believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowing of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Corinthians 1:1-31). The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4).

We believe the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine – is a memorial of His suffering and death (I Corinthians 11:26) and a prophecy of His second coming. Sharing the Lord’s supper is one of the few New Testament ordinances that Christ commanded of believers, which we do in a solemn and meaningful portion of our worship services on a regular basis.
