Jesus came so that we might truly live. His purpose was not only to save us from death, but to fill us so that we might overflow with new life! Here at Tabernacle, we describe this from three angles—eternal life, internal life, and external life.
Eternal Life: Jesus came in order to restore our relationship with God. He hung on the cross to forgive our sins and He rose from the dead to give us new life. By faith in Him, we can experience an eternity of blessing with God in His new creation, free from the curse of sin and death.
Internal Life: Our pride, lust, rage, and despair all result from a self-centered life. The universe wasn’t made to revolve around us. But with Jesus at the center, our internal world becomes more peaceful and joyful as we learn to love and serve Him.
External Life: Jesus tells us to love our neighbor. Generosity, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness flow from a heart that has been renewed. The gospel compels us to minister to the world around us in order to see God’s kingdom come and His will done “on earth as it is in heaven.”
We are a church that believes Jesus Christ is at the center of everything and that His gospel ought to govern every aspect of our lives. .
