Young Adults Standing Around

We believe in:

One God in three persons

There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 1:20; Matthew 28:19; Deuteronomy 4:35; John 17)

Justification by grace, by faith in Christ alone


Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Solus Christus


God loves us and we are to walk in relationship with God; however, sin separated us from God. God came down in human form (Jesus) and paid the atoning sacrifice effectively and permanently for our sins. We can now again enjoy relationship with our God by having faith in what Jesus has done; and this salvation is provided to us not by works, but by grace alone. (Romans 3:28, 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; John 14:6)

The Holy Spirit, who is our Ever-Present Guide

Now that we have been forgiven by faith in Jesus, we can walk with God and He guides us. This is through the Holy Spirit who now dwells in those of faith and guides them in all truth (John 16:13); he is the counselor that can tell us which way to go, and even how we ought to pray for ourselves and for others. (John 14, Acts 1-2)

The Word of God as the Supreme Authority - Sola Scriptura

The Bible is contained in 66 books and is the written word of God. It is inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. No other guide, cultural tradition or interpretation can take the place of primacy of what is written in Scriptures. (2Timothy 3:16-17)

Evangelism and Missions – God seeks the lost, and lost people matter to God

Jesus came to seek the lost and the hurting (Mark 2:17); those who are not proud and realize their need for God (Matthew 5:3). The lost matter to God, and He is seeking them and wants them to repent and return to Him (Luke 15). We are called to join in His mission and make disciples of all nations in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).

Community of believers, called the Church


Ekklesia (Greek) - an assembly or community of called-out ones.


The church is the community of believers where God is present (Matthew 18:20). In these gatherings, the believers devote themselves to worship, the Word of God, prayer and fellowship (Acts 2:42-47). Those who place their faith in Jesus Christ are collectively, not individually, the bride of Christ (Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 5:25-27; Revelation 19:7). As a result, it is important for believers to partake in corporate worship, communion, fellowship, and collaboration with those whose faith is in Christ.

Local Churches are a grace of God, follow your spiritual leaders

By God’s grace, there are many churches that are different in specific factors such as cultures, languages, and regions. No two churches are alike, and such variations and their respective leadership/congregation demonstrates God’s grace to all of us who are different, but are united in the same faith in Christ. In all your dealings of prayer and interactions with others, follow the direction and guidance of the shepherd whom God has placed over you, that is, the leadership of your local church (Hebrews 13:17).

Prayer – our relationship with God and our ability to intercede

Prayer is a way we communicate with God and seek His heart; seek what He is planning to do so that we may participate in what He is doing. Through prayer, we can ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us to where we should go. Jesus Himself prayed and taught us how to pray (Matthew 6:9-13). Prayer is how we rely on God and trust Him continually rather than on our worldly thinking (Ephesians 6:18, Philippians 4:6, Colossians 4:2, 1Thessalonians 5:17). Prayer is a way of intercession to ask God, who loves us, to care for another who is hurting or in need (James 5:14-16). Prayer is a confession of faith and recognition that there is nothing impossible for God, and that He would meet and provide for those who earnestly seek Him (Luke 1:37, Proverbs 8:17, Hebrews 11:6).


Info Language Arrow
Prayer Tents is a Christian mission organization that serves Christians around the world and their local bodies to make disciples ("evangelize") more effectively in their communities. Prayer Tents provides resources to enable Christians to form discipleship-focused small groups and make their gatherings known so that other "interested" people may participate and experience Christ in their midst. Our Vision is to make disciples in all nations through the local churches so that anyone seeking God can come to know Him through relationships with other Christians near them.
