Apostolic Tabernacle of Fort Worth: Who We are
Apostolic Tabernacle of Fort Worth is an old fashioned Oneness Pentecostal church which preaches, teaches, and adheres to the teachings of the Apostles in the book of Acts and the Epistles. We believe in repentance, baptism in water by emersion in Jesus’ name, receiving the Holy Ghost evidenced by our speaking in tongues, and living a life that is characterized by outward modesty of dress, and an attitude of humility. We teach that abstaining from vices such as tobacco use in any form, drinking of alcohol, the recreational use of illegal drugs, fornication, adultery, etc. is pleasing to God. With this as our goal, we strive to please God by living a life as scripture sets in order. We absolutely understand that mankind in not capable of achieving this goal within himself; therefore, we believe that we must submit ourselves to the power of God which is given to those who obey the command of being born again. We believe that God created man in his own image. So, mankind in the beginning of creation was without flaw or fault. After Adam’s disobedience, the life of sin and failure became a part of our human nature. In order for us to return to full fellowship with God, we must have these things removed. Within our own ability, this is simply impossible. However, we believe that we do not have to depend upon our own will power to achieve this. We hold that God became a man, was born by a virgin, was without sin or fault, died for our transgressions, arose from the dead, and bestowed upon those who would commit to following His plan the power to overcome our human shortcomings. This enables us as human beings to once again gain fellowship with God.
We here at Apostolic Tabernacle of Fort Worth seek to educate and demonstrate to our community that it is possible to free oneself from the controlling force of the world around us by whole-heartedly following the plan that God has set in order through His holy word. Through the power that God gives those who obey His word, we can be delivered from all of those things which keep us separated from God’s fellowship. We have seen lives changed, bodies healed, tormented minds set free, and deliverance from harmful habits and vices. We strive to show the people around us that it is possible to live a life full of enjoyment while pleasing God with a life that is powered by His Spirit. We want everyone to know that living a life approved by God is both possible and enjoyable. We are a group of loving people who know what God can do for those who will simply allow Him to have complete control of their lives. No matter where someone is from or what their background, God’s power can revolutionize their life, renew them to a fresh outlook, and give a heavenly tomorrow.
