We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16)
We believe in the great commission and are passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, power and compassion. (Mark 16:15-18)
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Hebrews 9:12,22; Romans 5:11)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:47-48)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4, Acts 10:45-46; Act 19:1-6)
We believe that every believer is given power to live a victorious, overcoming life. (John 10:10; I John 5:4)
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe in Divine Healing. (James 5:14-15) presents God's plan for divine healing: Laying on of hands and anointing with oil usually accompany prayer for healing, in accordance with God's Word and to focus faith.
We believe the Bible commands us (Hebrews 6:1-2) to go beyond just doctrine and to strive for perfection in our lives. As such we teach and deliver the principles of God’s Word in a practical manner to enable believers to have fulfilling lives, marriages and relationships, and finances.
Tabernacle of Hope began with a simple purpose; to bring Hope to our world which has lost all hope, purpose and direction. What is Hope? Hope is rediscovering the God Given Purpose and Potential for which you were born and designed. Hope is rebirthing the Dreams and Desires of your youth when you believed you could do and be anything. Hope is giving daily practical Direction to all who have lost their way due to sinful habits, poor decisions and following the ways of the world around them.
Tabernacle of Hope began October 15, 2006 in the Ashley Plaza Hotel in Downtown Tampa. We moved to our current location at 6907 N. Nebraska Ave., Tampa, FL 33604. We are deliberately positioned in inner city Tampa because the inner city is where the major political, business and social decisions of our community are made and where the enemy has established his strongholds. Many churches and individuals have purposely removed themselves from the inner city leaving behind an urban core of decay, destruction and hopelessness. However, a renaissance has begun with the return of businesses and housing developments into the inner city but this rebirth will not be complete without the Spiritual Revival, Renewal and Restoration our city desperately needs.
We are a dynamic, growing church who believes in the simple, timeless truths of the Word of God without all of the trappings of the modern day church. Tabernacle of Hope believes the purpose of the church's existence is to meet the spiritual, emotional, and social needs of people in their community and to the world beyond. The ministry philosophy we incorporate is a blend of genuine heartfelt worship, sound biblical instruction, and individual and corporate fellowship accompanied by personal evangelism. Every program and outreach is designed to accomplish one of three goals: introduce people to Jesus Christ, mature people in their walk with Christ; and motivate people to show their love for Christ to others. Our theme is "Restoring Hope One Heart At A Time". We want people to know that our Lord Jesus Christ is a God of second chances and that he is still working on all of us.
