- We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world the sacrificial Lamb of God (John 3:16) and through Him is the only way to salvation (Acts 4:12)
- Repentance of our sins, water baptism, and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38), and must accept Jesus Christ as his or her Savior, for there is no other Name whereby man shall be saved (Acts 4:12)
- We believe that God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8); He never changes His ways, for they are perfect (Numbers 23:19)
- There is ONE God, and His name is the Lord Jesus Christ. His Name is above every name (Ephesians 3:14-15)
- Water baptism is a command of God: “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17). All that were ever baptized, were baptized according to His command; this command is revealed in Acts 2:38, Acts 19 and Matthew 28:19, where they baptized in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- We believe in all nine spiritual gifts of the Holy Ghost (I Corinthians 12:4-11)

Believers Tabernacle believes in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Just as John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Jesus Christ, there are numerous Scriptures that also foretell of a second forerunner of our Lord Jesus Christ. Malachi 4:5-6, Revelation 10:7, Luke 17:30, Revelation 3:14-21, Amos 2:25 and Joel 2:25.
Through the history of the church, God sent a Messenger to each designated Church Age; we believe that Brother William Marrion Branham is sent as the Messenger to this Seventh Church Age. His ministry again is to accomplish the same as John the Baptist: “forerun the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” All of the above Scriptures are identified in the ministry of William Marrion Branham; he has all the Scriptural identification of the prophet to this last age. This Biblical pattern holds true, for this is how all of God’s prophets were identified in past ages.
One may argue that Malachi 4:5-6 was referring to John the Baptist. This statement is easy to believe for the lack of revelation. Malachi 3 was John the Baptist; Malachi 4:5-6 is “before the great and dreadful day of the Lord” two different times. To prove this, Malachi 3:1 reads, “Behold, I sent my messenger….”

Jesus made reference to this Scripture speaking of John the Baptist. Matthew 11:10: “For this is he, of who it is written, Behold I send my messenger….” Malachi 4:5-6 could not be referring to the same person. Malachi 4:5-6 is the day that the earth will burn with fervent heat, II Peter 3;2. Malachi 4:5-6 is the great and dreadful day of the Lord; this event did not happen in the day of John the Baptist. John the Baptist indeed foreran the first coming of Jesus Christ. Malachi 4:5-6 is inevitably the forerunning of the second coming of Jesus Christ.
