The mission of Tabernacle Baptist Church is a reflection of the “Great Commission” of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” — Matthew 28:18-20.
This commandment may be summarized under three heads:
- Preaching the Gospel to every creature — Mark 16:15.
- Baptizing those who believe on Jesus Christ — Acts 2:41.
- Teaching those added to the church through salvation, then baptism — Acts 2:42.
With this in mind, all of our Church’s ministries are focused on fulfilling at least one aspect of the Commission.
