Welcome to Apostolic Faith Tabernacle

AFT was founded in Detroit, MI.  Services were held at 18090 Dwyer St.  In July of 1962, the current facility was purchased under the leadership of A.W. Hicks.  In 1976, Ronald Guidroz became pastor.  In 1980, Danny McCool became pastor and became bishop in 2008, when current Pastor David McCool was elected.  AFT has been blessed with ministerial stability throughout the years, having only 5 pastors over it's 63 years of existence.

AFT is a Bible-based church.  We seek to base all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible or on biblical principles.  Based on Scripture, we believe the following:

About the Bible

The bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian Living (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh.  He is both God and man.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16)

About Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation.  Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

About the Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.  We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).  (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4,37-39; Romans 6:3-4)

About the Christian Living

As Christians, we are to love God and others.  We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully.  The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.  (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church.  In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment.  The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.  (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:11-15)
