Statement of Faith
Bethel Tabernacle is a non-denominational church. We believe the world is in sad shape and desperately needs Jesus! We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, and is the final authority for faith and life. We believe that God is one God but exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God’s Son, Jesus, is the “gate” and only way to the Father. We believe Jesus paid the price for our salvation and did everything necessary for us to become born-again, children of God if we repent of our sins and believe Him. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells all believers and actively communicates God’s will as He guides us spirit to spirit. We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, is available to all believers. We believe bodily healing, healthy relationships, and overall protection and prosperity is God’s will for all believers.
We believe that God loves every person. He is not willing that any should perish, and is not trying to send people to hell. We believe that God’s children will spend eternity with Him, and despite God’s efforts to reach all, some will exercise their free will and reject Him unto everlasting punishment prepared for the devil and his angels.
We also believe lots of other really biblical stuff. If you need to know more, come to the church.
John 10:7-10 (NIV)
Therefore Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
