Clarify

OUTER COURT >APPROACH

Visiting a website is one thing, but taking the next step is vitally important. The Bible is big on relationships, especially our relationship with God and with one another. We want to encourage you to take the next step to find out more about The Tab, not only by checking out this site, but by visiting one of our services. As you do, you’ll discover for yourself the great things God is doing and learn how you can experience the joy of belonging.

Commit

HOLY PLACE

>ENGAGE

Attending church services is one thing, but actively engaging and becoming part of the life of a Church is quite another. Your choice to commit will connect you personally with leaders who can help you to determine the best track to take for continued personal growth and development. This decision will bring you into deeper relationships with others, and into the fuller, more purposeful life you’ve been searching for.

HOLY OF HOLIES

>ENCOUNTER

Covenant is the highest form of relationship. It speaks of healthy, trustworthy, life-giving relationships that are proven by time and circumstance. We’re confident, that as you join us in investing your heart in Kingdom relationships, and press more fully into your walk with the God of Covenant, the result will be your deepest fulfillment and your highest joy.

Our Mission & Beliefs

 

Our Mission Statement

The Tabernacle is an Apostolic Center.  As a House of Prayer, Our Mission is to Partner with Holy Spirit to Raise up Disciples who are Activating Kingdom Culture Locally, Nationally and Globally.

Our Core Values

The Tabernacle is a place where People Matter to God. We are a Family in Covenant with God and each other, to Experience His Presence and through Spirit-Led Creativity, accomplish our Kingdom purpose: to be a Dynamic Missional Church. These five values are further explained in our Core Values brochure.

Our Core Beliefs

The evidence of salvation is two-fold. The internal evidence is the direct witness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16). The external evidence is the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22, 23). We become a new creation (II Cor. 5:17) and are transformed into the image of Christ (II Cor. 3:18).

When we put our faith in Christ, it triggers a spiritual chain reaction. We become the Temple of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 6:19). Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Rev. 3:5). We become citizens of heaven (Phil. 3:20-21). We are given eternal life (John 3:16). We are adopted and become children of God (Gal. 4:4-7). Our sins are forgiven and forgotten (Heb. 8:12). We are credited with the righteousness of Christ (Rom. 4:4-5). We are born-again (John 3:3). God takes ownership of us (I Cor. 6:20). We receive an eternal inheritance (Ephesians 1:13-14 & I Peter 1:3-5).
