Serve The Church
First Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church believes that the church is us: people who love Jesus serve others by parking cars, holding babies, praying with others, pouring coffee, and opening their homes. In this, God changes us. Serving in the local church is a vehicle to discover how we are made and how the Lord can use us.
- Pastor Andre J. Osborne
God has given gifts to each of us. As believers, it is our aim to use every gift to glorify God and advance His Kingdom. According to Ephesians 4, the body of Christ is only built up when we ALL play our part and do what God has called and commissioned us to do. Because of this, it is imperative that EVERY disciple discover their gifting and use it so that the gospel advances.
