Apostolic Refuge Tabernacle was established upon the apostolic doctrine.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Acts 2: 38-42

Our Mission

We at Apostolic Refuge Tabernacle are anticipating a fresh move of God, that will revive us again, and remain with us.

Our mission concerning the church that Jesus Christ establish, is to fulfill the great commission, to win the lost at any cost.

Our passion therefore is to spread the whole gospel to the whole world through preaching, teaching, witnessing, evangelizing, and to demonstrate to the unsaved how Christian can effectively fulfill God’s purpose. In reaching our own community and enriching our own personal lives through biblical Christian principles.

Articles of Faith

We accept the Scriptures as the revealed Will of God, the infallible Word of God. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (II Timothy 3: 16).

The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, the administration, teaching, preaching, and conduct of the membership of the church, must be based upon and harmonize with, the Bible.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
