Our Creeds

Our Theological Understanding
The theological foundation of Nehemiah Tabernacle is based on three principles: the unity of Christ's body, the faith of the gospel and service to humankind.

The Unity of Christ's Body
Nehemiah Tabernacle strong conviction in the belief that every person, regardless of race, class or sexual orientation have worth in the eyes of God and this congregation. The church theme is "A Worship Community for All People." Every person that worship with this congregation is welcome to the Lord's table. Paul wrote in Romans 16:7, "Wherefore receive ye one another as Christ received us to the glory of God."

The Faith of the Gospel
Nehemiah Tabernacle is a worship community that focus on the study and application of the Holy Scriptures. The church believes that the scriptures are God's mouthpiece from the prophets and the preachers of ancient times. The church's faith in scriptures builds spiritual development of the parishioners' spiritual direction. With this in mind, God gave our pastor the church's main scriptural theme which states, "...that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel" (Philippians 1:27).

Service to Humankind
In the center of Nehemiah's theology is serving others. It is the church's duty to assist any individual in a bad situation. In Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus encourages the church to help any individual who is hungry, thirsty, naked, sick or a stranger. In the heart of Christianity, is the ministry of giving to others. Nehemiah Tabernacle's service to humankind is wrapped around the attitude of love, thankfulness, faithfulness, willingness and eagerness.
