Statement of Faith

  1. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit; they are one in spirit, however distinct in person and function.(Matthew28:19, 2Corinthians 13:14, John 14:16-17)
    1. We believe that God the Father is at the head of the Godhead. We believe that Jesus Christ, second in the trinity was a physical manifestation of the Godhead to the human race. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life while on earth. We believe in all the miracles he performed. We believe in His propitiation for mankind through the shedding of His blood on the cross as the only means for man’s salvation. We believe He rose bodily from the dead on the third day and was seen of by over five hundred witnesses at one time.
    2. We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Trinity. We understand the Holy Spirit to be the agent of conviction, regeneration, indwelling, baptism, sanctification, and illumination to all those whom are born again through Jesus Christ. We strongly oppose the charismatic movement and believe they misinterpret the scriptures concerning tongues and other sign manifestations.
    3. We believe that God created the universe and all that is in it in six literal twenty-four hour days. We believe that all three persons of the trinity were present at the point of creation. We believe that God created man in His own image, as in intellect, emotion (free will), and personality. In mans free will he chose to sin against God, because of this all of mankind inherits a depraved nature and are lost in their sin and in need of a savior.(Genesis1:1-31)
    4. We believe that salvation of man comes from God through the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ. It is a free gift offered to man by God’s grace, salvation is received by man through personal faith in His Son’s completed work on the cross and nothing else can be added.(1John5:11-12)
    5. We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired and infallible, authoritative Word of God. God gave the words of Scripture by inspiration without error in the original autographs. God promises the preservation of His Word in its entirety for all eternity. (2Timothy3:16-17)
      1. We believe that God has kept His promise by preserving His infallible Word in the traditional Hebrew and Greek manuscripts and that the King James Version (KJV) is an accurate English translation of the preserved Word of God.(Matthew24:35, 1Peter 1:25)
      2. It is the practice of this ministry to use the King James version in English to preach and teach the word of God.
    6. We believe it is appointed unto man to physically die and then the judgment. We believe in the resurrection of both the lost and the saved. Those that have believed by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary will be saved and resurrected unto eternal life in heaven. Those who are lost in their sin shall be resurrected, judged for the deeds that were done in their bodies and cast into a literal lake of fire for all of eternity.(Hebrews 9:27,28; Revelation 20:11-15)
    7. We believe that God established and ordained the local church to establish His Word and further His work throughout the world. We believe that God desires spiritual unity in the body of Christ, and calls men of God to preach and teach the body of Christ to do the work of the ministry. We believe that God gave the church two ordinances,(Matthew 16:18, 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:12)
      1. All believers should be baptized by immersion after they have been saved.(Matthew 28:19, 3:16; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12)
      2. All Christians should regularly observe the Lord’s Supper until His return.(1Corintians 11:2,26)
    8. We believe in a pre-tribulation return of Jesus Christ for all believers, called the Rapture. The Rapture of the saints will be followed by the seventieth week prophesized in the book of Daniel, also known as the seven-year period of Tribulation. Christ will then return in glory to judge the world and set up His millennial kingdom earth.(1Thessalonians 4:13-18; Daniel 9:24-27, 12:1; Jeremiah 30:7-9)
    9. Tabernacle of Hope Ministry believes in Biblical separation from, new evangelicalism, and ecumenical movement, theological liberalism, and neo-orthodoxy.
      1. Tabernacle of Hope Ministry believes in taking a stand against the modern-day charismatic movement, and all other religions and their erroneous interpretation of the scriptures and the hype that it creates.
      2. We do not believe in pre-election of man to heaven or hell by God. The scriptures are clear that God desires all men to repent and be born again.
      3. Tabernacle of Hope Ministry in all fairness believes that any who holds to these above beliefs will not fit in at the Tabernacle of Hope Ministry.
  2. The purpose of the Tabernacle of Hope Ministry, being led and motivated by the Holy Spirit is to:
    1. Take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved in towns and cities across America.( Acts14:21)
    2. Edify the body of Christ in supporting churches.(Acts14:22)
    3. Plant and establish local churches across America. (Acts14:23)
    4. Plant and establish orphanages, Christian schools, and youth camps.

    This will be accomplished through missionary work supported by Fundamental Bible believing Baptist Churches and other brothers and sisters in Christ of same convictions and beliefs.

  3. The Tabernacle of Hope Ministry for the time being is located in Pensacola, but will be moved near our sending church in the near future, Palm Bay, Florida.
    1. Faith Baptist Church of Palm Bay, Florida is our sending church and will be overseer and hold accountable the Tabernacle of Hope Ministry.
    2. The Tabernacle of Hope Ministry will have a board of directors consisting of at least five members at all times also overseeing the ministry.
  4. In conclusion it is the Hope and desire of the Tabernacle of Hope Ministry to evangelize the lost across America, being directed and led by the Holy Spirit of God, and held accountable by mature godly men appointed by God through our supporting church, and through the board of directors organized by the Tabernacle of Hope Ministry.
