About Tabernacle Baptist Church
Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.
Tabernacle Baptist has a long ministry history in Chillicothe. Our desire for 125 years has been to know the Savior and make him known in our world.
“Tabernacle” isn’t a word we use much anymore. In the Bible though, tabernacle means some things that still matter today:
- In the ancient days, it was a place to meet God for worship and to find forgiveness. We still do that here. Definitely needed.
- In time, the Son of God “became flesh and lived among us” (John 1:14). The Greek word for “lived” is the word for “tabernacle.” Jesus the Son was a living “tabernacle” and lived like we did. He knows our lives. And we are thankful for that reality. Definitely amazing.
- In this time, when a person opens their life to Jesus as Savior His Holy Spirit indwells us and is making us into a “holy temple in the Lord” (Ephesians 2:22)…we are, each of us, His “tabernacle”. Definitely transformational.
Tabernacle: a place to worship and find forgiveness…the Son of God who lived with us and knows what it means to be human…and now, each one of us who has God’s Holy Spirit living with us. Definitely good.
What to Expect
Whether you are a Christian looking for a church home or you are curious about a relationship with God, you’ll find a worship experience for you and your family.
Early Worship: 8:30-9:30
This gathering is more traditional in feel. If you like traditional hymns with a piano and organ this will feel like home.
Second Worship: 11:00-12:15
This is a more contemporary gathering. It’s louder, but always Christ-centered and God exalting.
We understand that God is present with us despite different styles of music and preferences of dress. He doesn’t look on our outward appearance but “on the heart.” So come as you are. This is a place where God meets people who aren’t perfect, and no matter where you are on your personal spiritual journey, your age or what you’ve done. You are absolutely welcome here.
Please bring your children! We have ministry to children from nursery through 4th Grade. They’ll learn Bible stories and participate in age-appropriate activities. At TBC children are welcomed and loved.
