Gathering To Worship Jesus
Because He is Worthy

Our Core Beliefs

We believe in God the Father, in Jesus Christ our Saviour and in Holy Spirit. We believe in this Trinity we find our King, Creator, and Redeemer; that they are just, merciful, faithful, loving, true, good and holy

We believe people are created in the image of God with an ability and a destiny to know and enjoy relationship with Him. That even though we have rejected this and chosen a lifestyle that excludes Him, He still wants to know us.  We can all be restored into relationship with Him

We believe that in His relentless mercy God the Father sent Jesus, His Son, to earth. He was crucified for our sins, died and was buried, but on the third day was raised back to life. Through this He gave us access to a life fully connected to Him, then He ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us  

We believe that after Jesus ascended God sent Holy Spirit to lead, empower, convict, inspire and encourage us. With Holy Spirit living in and working through us we will see the world changed, one relationship at a time

We believe the Bible is the truth, God-breathed and a vital part of our relationship with Him  

We believe in the Church, a beautiful multi-faceted family made up of individuals of every age, race, colour, and language joined through love for and faith in Jesus Christ

We believe that the church in all its forms, filled with the love and power of God is the hope for the world. 

Why 'David's Tent'?

When King David brought the ark of God’s presence back to Jerusalem he set up a special tent of worship in the middle of the city (2 Chron 16). David recognised that God was worthy of extravagant worship and that his presence was worth celebrating. David’s tabernacle hosted over 30 years of day and night worship that was open for the people to come and worship in God’s presence without the separation of the veil. There were no ritual barriers entry and the people could come and participate in worship. We believe this was a prophetic picture of the kind of worship Jesus made a way for on the cross - a people re-united with God pouring out their hearts in response to his love, his kindness and his majesty. The apostle James addressed the council at Jerusalem with the Amos 9 prophecy about the “restoration of David’s fallen tent” (Acts 15). The message he relayed was that because of what Jesus had done, everyone could now come into God’s presence to worship.

Our heart for David’s Tent is not that we would recreate biblical rituals but that we would create a space where everyone is free and welcome to worship in God’s presence. We believe that the culture of worship from David’s tabernacle is being restored - not just in a physical place but in the hearts and lives of everyone who comes and builds the community of worshippers in the UK, California and beyond. Our hope is that people come, get refreshed and return to their churches and communities with the fresh fire of the Holy Spirit empowering us to live out a lifestyle of worship.
