Welcome!


Tabernacle Baptist Church or 'Tab' is a hub of hope in Christ, a welcoming family from a variety of backgrounds joined by a desire to know and share God's love.

At the beginning of 2021, we announced that our new Pastor, Rev Richard Skinner, had begun his ministry with us. Together with his wife Joy, they have joined us in Wolverhampton from their previous church in Bristol. We are excited at the way God has brought us together and look forward to how God is going to encourage, empower and strengthen us, as a church, in unity to serve Him and the local community and introduce people to Jesus.

What we believe

Our Vision Statement: "We want to see Tab, as a hub of hope in Christ, where lives are healed and restored by the transforming power of the gospel of Christ."

Our Mission Statement: We Glorify God by
  • Providing a vibrant welcoming place of worship where people meet with God
  • Discipling, Equipping, Enabling and Energising the people of God for acts of service
  • Reaching out to all peoples with Jesus' transforming message of love, hope, forgiveness and grace

The critical nature of a clear Vision and Mission

 
Nehemiah had a vision.  While he was yet in exile and far away from Israel, he had a clear image of Israel as she ought to be: a nation gathered by God from the farthest horizons and brought to the place God had chosen as a dwelling for His Name, and a Jerusalem rebuilt and secure.  (Nehemiah 1, 2)
 
Vision is the ability to see the future from God’s perspective: to sense what He is calling us to accomplish with Him.
 
“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.”  Habakkuk 2:2
 
“If you don’t have a vision you’re going to be stuck in what you know.  And the only thing you know is what you’ve already seen.” Iyanla Vanzant
 
“You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things so that all the small things go in the right direction.” Alvin Toffler

We are part of Baptists Together ...
Baptists Together
Declaration of Principle - The Basis of the Baptist Union is:

1. That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.

2. That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who 'died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day'.

3. That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.

... and members of the Evangelical Alliance.

With regards to our relationships, marriage and sexual intimacy the church meeting has agreed this.

Come visit us on a Sunday or during the week and see or ask us what we believe  : )
