2015 – Receive It, Believe It, Achieve It!
Some Thirty, Sixty, Hundred
We are believing God for some of the greatest miracles He has for His people.  For resources, both financial and personnel, we know that God will favor His people with blessings that are, “Thirty, Sixty, and a Hundred fold!”  If God did not mean it for His people, He would not have put it in His Word.  
Come and be a part of the growing ministry of Praise Tabernacle.  According to John We receive it, believe it, and will achieve it!
Fasting and Prayer
As we have said good bye to 2014, we are excited about what God has in store for 2015.  
Each new year brings with it new hopes and dreams; sometimes, a starting point to eradicate the failures, disappointments, and even the unfortunates losses we may have endured.  
Jesus said in Mark 9:29, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting,” and we invite you to join us in prayer and fasting over the next several days.  Read more.

Praise Tabernacle Worship Center…

As with most Christian churches, Praise Tabernacle hails from a tradition of Christian Orthodoxy.  Its foundation is that of a traditional neo-Pentecostal church.  And, while we appreciate our heritage, we recognize that the work of the God does not always lend itself to tradition.  It is not about doctrine, dress (the outward appearance), nor form, or fashion. God’s ways are not man’s ways (tradition) and reaching the hearts of people, in that they receive salvation through Jesus Christ (according to what the Bible says), is what we know to be most important.


Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19 NKJV).  Witnessing is paramount for us as believers of Christ and we must tell others about the Savior who died for their sins that they might have a right to the tree of life.

Outreach and Missions

When we help those who are less fortunate than ourselves; when we have compassion on those living in foreign lands who do not have the conveniences we often take for granted on a daily basis (clothes, food, shelter, basic hygiene, health, etc.), then we truly touch the heart of God.


We believe that there must be a commitment in our service to God and that we must be committed to the work of God.  Every church needs personnel and financial resources in order to fulfill the up-building of the Kingdom.  Without finances and personnel commitment, we risk hindering the work of the Lord in snatching men and women from the bonds of sin.

Fellowship and Relationship

Everyone needs the “human touch” and when we are in fellowship with one another, we are stronger as a church and community.  We embrace and support other ministries who are obeying the Holy Spirit in their quest to be all that God has ordained them to be.  When we cultivate our family relationships, we help build solid foundations spiritually and naturally.  The church is made up of families and we strive to encourage family relationships as a priority.  Most important, we endeavor to build spiritual relationships with God through the teaching and reading of His Word – applying His Word to our lives – and through prayer and fasting.

Three Ways to Give








Tithes and Offerings

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house…”

Malachi 3:10

Get Involved

Praise Tabernacle is not a place for spectators or a “what have you done for me lately?” place of fellowship. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Praise Tabernacle.

Women’s Fellowship

Under the direction of First Lady Debbie Brown, this targeted group of godly women share in spiritual precepts and real life applications that strengthen and encourage today’s woman in becoming all that God would have her to be.

Men’s Fellowship

If you bind the strongman, you can conquer the entire house. Today’s men are being challenged from every direction and it is the goal of the enemy to completely destroy the people of God via society using the malefactor. As men become delivered from Satan’s stronghold and energized by the Word of God, society, community, and government will change and the church will be that army God intended for it to be.

Music and Arts Ministry

Praise Tabernacle offers several choirs; adult, youth and children, as well as the mass choir that minister on a regular basis. We also have Praise and Worship teams, praise dance ministries, and youth flag/banner bearers. We encourage any and everyone to come and make a joyful noise and dance as before the Lord!

Ushers and Greeters

Everyone loves to feel a warm welcome when they enter into the House of God. If you have a pleasant smile and love people, these ministries are for you.

Media Services

Sound and Video – Our approach to media presentation is not a “Hollywood Production.” This ministry offers simple yet comprehensive media presentations each main service to our congregants that work in concert with the move and flow of the service.

Focus Groups

Meets on selective Sunday mornings from 8:45 – 10:00 AM and targets specific areas of family and ministry to strengthen and encourage:

  • Men and Women
  • Youth Impressions and Young Adults
  • Marriage Ministry
  • Ministry and Leadership Development

Share The Gospel!

Praise Tabernacle is eager to provide links to our weekly sermons and videos. You can browse the selection below to keep up with the teaching ministry.  Presently, we are constructing our library of archived media and expect to have it available very soon.
