Tabor Baptist Church is a body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ whom God has gathered together as a family. We exist to worship Him corporately, to nurture one another toward maturity in Christ through obedience to the Word of God, and to impact the world by displaying and declaring the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ.
A body of believers reflects the vital connection between us. We are more than just a gathering of individuals.
The Lord Jesus Christ is central. Who we are and what we do is all about Him.
Whom God has gathered together recognizes that He has taken the responsibility for our formation and gets the credit for our unity.
As a family is acknowledging the kind of relationships we have with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.
To worship Him corporately means that in all our gatherings we want to recognize and respond to the presence of God among us as a body.
Nurturing one another reminds us that we are called to invest ourselves in one another toward the goal of Christ-likeness.
Toward maturity in Christ emphasizes the goal of being more and more like Jesus, not just doing morally responsible actions.
Through obedience to the Word describes the primary means of our growth as responding to what God has said.
To impact the world removes any barriers for how far we are willing go and to whom we would share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Displaying the good news is our intention to radiate the hope and joy of following Christ by how we live our lives daily.
Declaring the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ reminds us that only by believing in Christ can anyone be rescued from sin and death and hell, and that we have the joy and responsibility of sharing that great message with everyone we can.
