First and foremost, this organization is a Christian church. It is focused on the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Our church is founded upon the principles of Protestantism, although it is not a traditional follower of any specific leader of the Protestant Reformation. The church stands firmly for justification by faith, the priesthood of believers, the authority of the Bible, religious freedom, and the separation of church and state. It stands against abuses and extravagance of ecclesiastical ritualism and dogmatism.
Our Church’s Faith is built on the following central beliefs:
1. The Bible is without fault and without inaccuracy.
2. The virgin birth and complete deity of Christ.
3. The atoning sacrifice of Christ’s death for the sins of the world.
4. The literal resurrection of the body.
5. Christ’s second coming in bodily form to earth.
Evangelical is the term used to describe those who affirm the primary doctrines revealed in the Scriptures. These doctrines include the inspiration and authority of the Word of God; the Trinity; the deity and virgin birth of Jesus Christ; salvation by faith in the atoning death of Christ; His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father; the ministry of the Holy Spirit; the second coming of Christ; and the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ.
Faith Tabernacle Church of God has aligned itself with the Church of God, who has aligned itself with the basic statement of faith of NAE (National Association of Evangelicals) the largest association of Evangelicals in the USA. Members of NAE subscribe to a common statement of faith. The Church of God can be described as positioned in the mainstream of Evangelical Protestantism.
The magnitude of the Great Commission requires a united effort. This united endeavor is efficiently served by guidance, support, resources and leadership from a common center. Faith Tabernacle Church of God is centrally organized under the Church of God Organizational Structure and the Faith Tabernacle Church of God Committee led by Senior Pastor V. P. Abraham. Centralized church government helps facilitate the fulfillment of the mission of the church.
The heart of ministry is the implementation of a global strategy of evangelism, church planting and training. Its scriptural purpose is to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ; share Christ’s love for the world; minister to the totality of human need; bring men and women to the knowledge of God and His redeeming grace; and obey Christ by confessing Him to the world. Faith Tabernacle Church of God is involved in supporting various ministries domestically and internationally. Please refer to the missions page of this website in order to find out more.
