About Us

Love for others is to be a hallmark trait of Christians. At Grace Tabernacle Baptist Church we hope to teach from God's Word how to love and then to actually live it out by his strength. Here are just a few of the ways in which we look to love those in our lives:





One of the main instructions given to the leaders of the church was to be able to teach. Leaders are also commanded to equip the saints so that they can also carry out the work of the minsitry, and this exactly what our skilled teachers desire to do. 

Coming to our services should be a time of worship and fellowship, but also of mental strengthening. Sermons are understandable but yet stimulating to the mind with respect to accurate doctrine and implication.


The Great Commission of Matthew 28 tells us that we must be going into all the world, making disciples of persons in all nations. At Grace Tabernacle Baptist Church, we aim to take that seriously by using whatever means we have to promote worldwide missions.
