About Our Church
Baptist Tabernacle was founded October 17th, 1897 (See History) and our church building at Regent & Division Streets in Wilkes-Barre, PA Stands on the lot that was purchased in February 1920. Originally only the 1st floor was constructed. Then, on Easter Sunday in 1957, the 2nd floor new sanctuary was dedicated.
Our Church, of course, is much more than the building in which we congregate to celebrate the load. It is a Christian community, congregation and a true church Family. Physical buildings, improvements and technology change but the essence of our church is our church covenant (See Our Church).
As Baptist Tabernacle We seek to know jesus christ and make him known through: Worship, Education, Encouragement, Mission Support, service and Inviting others to join the family of god.
We take pride in the fact that our congregation is multi-generational and, although relatively small in number, we are committed to Jesus Christ and support not only the Church but each other.
