Our Rich Heritage

The "Pentecostal Assemblies of the World" is the continuation of the great revival that began at Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost, A.D. 33, and is founded upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ, Himself being the Chief Cornerstone.  (Acts 2:1-12; Eph. 2:19, 20)  Although the true followers have been little known, yet from that time until now, there have always been earnest contenders for the "faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
pawAt various intervals, throughout the past centuries, the followers of the Apostolic Faith and Doctrine have become prominent through great revivals that have appeared in Great Britain, the United States, and Canada.
In the days of Tertulian (A.D. 207), Chryostom (4th Century), Christians of the 13th Century, the early Quakers, Wesley, Whitefield and Irving, the gifts and manifestations of the Apostolic Church were much in evidence as the revival spirit swept over the country.

In Kansas (1901) the revival broke forth and moved southward to Texas, being known locally only, but finally reached Los Angeles, California (1906), from whence it spread throughout the whole earth, entering into every nation under heaven, penetrating the heathen darkness of India, China, Africa, and the Isles of the Sea fulfilling the commission of our Lord, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15-20; Matthew 28:18, 19; Luke 24:47-49; Acts 1:4-11), and proclaiming the soon coming of the Lord.
So great was the awakening, that in a few years in nearly every town of any size whatever, there were witnesses to the Pentecostal outpouring of the Spirit, (Luke 24:28; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4), and soon there began to appear in different localities, places of worship wherein the gifts of the Spirit were manifested, designating themselves by such names as: "The Apostolic Faith Mission, Pentecostal Mission, Apostolic Faith Assembly, Full Gospel Assembly or Mission, Assembly of God," etc., their own common aim being to "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" in the days of the Apostles, taking the Bible as their creed, discipline, and rule of order and charter.

What We Believe          

Christ Tabernacle Apostolic Church is affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. and is a member of the Northeast District Council.

The only grounds upon which God will accept a sinner is repentance from the heart for sins that he/she has committed. John preached that Repentance and Remission of Sins, should be preached in His name beginning at Jerusalem (Luke 24:47), Peter fulfilled this commandment on the Day of Pentecost (see Acts 2:38).

Jesus is coming to the earth again in person is a doctrine clearly set forth in Apostolic time. Jesus taught it. The Apostles preached it, and the saints accepted it. (Matthew 24:1, etc; Acts 1:11, 3:19, 21; I Corinthians 1:7, 8, 11:26; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; Titus 2:13, 14).

We believe in the mystery of the Godhead. We believe that Jesus was both human and divine, and further, that the Godhead be understood to mean all of the fullness of God. (Colossian 1:9 and 2:9). We believe that Jesus was Mary’s son and Mary’s God, creator and creature, God manifest in the flesh; that the flesh of Jesus was the same as ours with the exception of sin; that Jesus was the eternal father made visible, apart from whom there is no other God.

We believe that everyone must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. (St. John 3:3, 5) We further believe that to experience the new birth, one must be baptized in water in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ by immersion, and be baptized with the Holy (Ghost) with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues as the spirit of the Lord giveth utterance.

Water baptism was administered “In the name of Jesus Christ; for this was the name given before His birth for the saving of his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21); “for there is salvation in no other name (Acts 4:12)”. We further believe that baptism is by the immersion into water as recorded in (Acts 8:37, 38).

We believe that all believers are to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, as prophesied by Joel (2:28, 29 and Isaiah 28:11). We further believe the out pouring of the Holy Ghost is evident by the speaking in tongues as recorded in (Acts 2:4, 10:44-46).
