Mission & Anniversary Purpose

Our Mission

The Memorial Tabernacle Church has come together by the Holy Spirit for the specific purpose of preaching and teaching the word of God, (the Bible), and about Jesus Christ, God’s son, and to proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom of God to the North Oakland Community and its environs; to bring healing to the brokenhearted and deliverance to the oppressed; to be a center of genuine concern for those in need, a sanctuary of community worship that is neither shallow nor restrained, a spiritual home where members find an expression of precious love for one another and a haven for the unsaved.

Our Anniversary Purpose

Our Eighty-fifth Church Anniversary is a special year and milestone in the life of our church.  We set this special time aside, because . . .

    • It is a time of remembering the past, seeing where we are in the present, and looking ahead to the future.
    • It is a marker of our accomplishments (and failures).
    • It is a time when we invite our guests, families, and friends to celebrate with us.
    • It is a time to recognize those who have labored (past and present) with us to advance the kingdom of God.
    • It is an excellent opportunity for outreach.
    • Our anniversary year can be a time for healing and restoration.
    • We realize this as a wonderful opportunity to testify of God’s grace, mercy, and provisions.
