Life Tabernacle is a vibrant Pentecostal church where you can connect to God, others, and
purpose, through worship, fellowship, and training.
We believe in the one everliving, eternal God (Elohim-Hebrew); infinite in power, Holy in nature,
attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself
as Father, in creation; Son, in redemption; and as the Holy Spirit, in emanation-regeneration (Genesis 1:1;
Deuteronomy 6:4; I Corinthians 8:6; II Corinthians 5:19; Joel 2:28; Jews - Acts 2:4; Gentiles - Acts
We believe that Jesus Christ (Yahshua HaMashiach-Hebrew) was and is, the invisible God made
visible. Garmented in humanity, possessing all of the attributes of absolute deity, spirit robed in flesh
(John 1:1,14; I Timothy 3:16), He reveals to mankind the essential nature of the Almighty. He freely gave
Himself as the "Lamb of God” (John 1:29) for the sins of mankind (Colossians 1:15; Colossians 2:9-11; I
We believe that SALVATION is of our own volition. It is attained through faith in Jesus Christ by
repentance from sin, baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost with
scriptural evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Isaiah 28:11,12; John 3:5;
Acts 2:4,38; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 16:30-34; Acts 19:1-6; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 2:8).
We believe that those who are thus "IN CHRIST” (John 4:25) and continue in Him, shall at His
coming be caught away to be with Him forever (I Thessalonians 4:13-20).
We believe in Divine Healing as the prerogative of the individual. It is through faith in Christ's
provision for the Church that it is received (James 5:13-15; Matthew 8:17).
We believe in the scripturally valid operation of the Gifts of the Spirit as found in I Corinthians
12-14, and the essentiality of the Fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:16-25. Jesus said, "Ye shall
know them by their fruit" (Matthew 7:16).
We believe that our doctrinal and spiritual roots are found within the content and context of the
First Century Apostolic Messianic Church of the 2nd Chapter of the Book of Acts. The Messiah and
Savior was Jewish (Isaiah 11:10; John 4:9; Revelation 5:5); the Holy Ghost was given on the Jewish Feast
Day of Shavouth (Pentecost) "to the Jews first"(Romans 1:16) in Acts 2:4; the New Covenant Plan of
Salvation was Jewish (John 3:5-8; John 4:22; Acts 2:4,16,33,36-38,39,47) the first Gentile converts to the
gospel received the same-like experience as the Jewish believers at Pentecost (Acts 10:1-6, 44-48; Acts
11:17) and became partakers of the Root and the fatness of the Olive Tree (Israel, Jerusalem, Jews)
according to Romans 11:17-18 and Galatians 3:7-9, 14, 26-29; Galatians 4:5-7, 13, 26.
