Apostolic Doctrine

The term Apostolic refers to the twelve Apostles (disciples) who walked with Jesus and followed His doctrine. Doctrine means teaching. Lighthouse Tabernacle is striving to be a 21st-century Apostolic Church by faithfully attending to the teachings and practices of the first church as read in the New Testament.

Our Beliefs

About The Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God. The authority for salvation and Christian living (II Timothy 3:15-17).

About God

There is one God; revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh, fully God, and fully man. The God of the Old Testament was incarnated in the New Testament. Today He offers to fill us with His Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Acts 1:4-5; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16)

Sin & Salvation

Everyone has sinned and is in need of eternal salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sinful desires), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).  (See 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).

Spiritual Transformation

Spiritual transformation is a journey that takes place over the course of a believer’s life (1 Peter 2:2). After a believer has been born again (John 3:3-7), they must embark on the journey of spiritual growth (Ephesians 4:12-15). We must love God and love others. We should live a holy life before the Lord and worship Him joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).

The Future 

Jesus Christ is coming again and will receive His church into eternal life. At the end of the age, there will be the final resurrection and final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life. The unrighteous will inherit eternal death (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
