"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." - Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
At Faith Tabernacle, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
Whether you've been attending church for years or haven't stepped into a sanctuary in decades, we hope you'll come and join us Sunday if you're looking for a church in our hometown.
During the service, you'll hear our faith expressed in the prayers we offer up and our pastor's preaching. All parts of our service are grounded in the Bible, which we are committed to upholding.
After the service, say hello to our pastor and anyone else you see. We'd all love to hear your story and share ours with you.
No matter what your Christian background is (or isn't), we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Our services start at 9:00 AM every Sunday.
At Faith Tabernacle, our mission is reaching by service, teaching the word, and leading in loving relationships and education.
Our vision is SEE others as Christ sees us.
OUR MISSION & VISION
Share God's Word with the unchurched.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Faith Tabernacle, we believe in the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God…
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16-17, KVJ
"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 2 Peter 1:19-21

God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time. For example, people no longer bring goats, sheep, calves and grain to God as they did in the Old Testament. Giving money is simpler, cleaner and theologically sounder since Jesus has made the ultimate sacrifice. As the way that money is exchanged changes, we at Faith Tabernacle are extending members a new way to offer their financial gifts to God.
Anyone who would like to give to Faith Tabernacle online is welcome to do so through our church website. The system makes it easy to quickly transfer money from a credit or debit card to the church safely and securely. One-time gifts and recurring withdrawals can both be set up, and gifts can be given either to the church's general fund or a specific church project.
At Faith Tabernacle, we'll continue to take an offering during the service for people who prefer to give by cash or check. For those who'd rather transfer money electronically, though, giving through the church website is an option.
