Joyous Worship.
The congregation of The Tabernacle loves Jesus, and delights in praise and worship. Miraculous things happen at our Sunday service as the Lord touches lives in a very personal way. We hope that this is what you experience when you come and worship with us for a time of refreshing and blessing.

Study of the Word.

Understanding the Bible is vital to every believer. Through the Word we come to understand God's will and God's ways. We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God, a book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning the truths it contains is a thrilling adventure.

Outreach & Evangelism.

God has placed us in a ripe harvest field, and he's drawing men, women, and children to him for salvation. The Tabernacle is reaching its "Jerusalem" first,” and its Samaria and the uttermost parts of the earth with the love of Jesus Christ.

Christian Growth.

For every person at every age level, the Tabernacle offers a wealth of opportunities for Christian growth. The church calendar is filled with special programs and ministries where you can develop your spiritual gifts and talents. The Tabernacle congregation is trained to be soul winners and servant-leaders.

Opportunities for Service.

Just as the Lord Jesus came "not to be ministered unto but to minister," we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. It is more blessed to give than to receive, and it is a joy to serve, not only within the church family, but also to a hurting world.

Loving Fellowship.

Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian fellowship. That's why we make it a priority to build lasting relationships in the church family with bonds of love and genuine commitment to one another. Best of all, this circle of care is ever-widening. There's plenty of room for you.


A New Testament Church.
We are Jesus centered and Bible believing. Our lives are focused on Christ and we come together to demonstrate his love and fellowship. Our church government of pastors, elders, and deacons is patterned after the scriptures.

A Charismatic Church.

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. We are an out-growth of the current day move of the Spirit while holding firmly to the Pentecostal principles of holiness that were delivered to the early church. An Inter-Denominational Church.
The Tabernacle is not affiliated with any traditional denomination, but transcends denominational barriers to gather in a spirit of unity to celebrate Jesus.

An International Christian Center.

Not only does The Tabernacle congregation have people from many nations, races, and cultures, but it also has a ministry that reaches out to touch the world. We believe that a church should be one family joined by the love of Jesus.

A Gathering of Believers.

Perhaps the best way to describe The Tabernacle is a gathering of people who love Jesus and their neighbor as themselves, and who seek to do the will of God in their lives.
