Our Vision

A Place Where People Encounter God.

Our Mission

The mission of the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church is to offer families a Christ-centered, Biblically based ministry that is educational, evangelical, inspirational and combative of negative and demonic forces in our community.

Our History

God has given us the privilege of running this leg of the race that began more than a century ago in 1876 when Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church began as the first Negro Baptist Church in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Click to learn more about our history.

Theme 2013 “THE SHIFT” – Ephesians 5:18 (KJV)

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Ephesians 5:18 (KJV)

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It’s a new year and we’re excited about “The Shift” that the Lord is bringing to our church. That’s right this year, the focus, the thematic thrust of our church family is “The Shift”.

The Shift as we consider the deeper implications of spirituality, the deeper implications of our pneumatology, and of how we understand the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. I pray that this year – as you make a commitment to worship, to Bible Study and to Service – that you will also make a commitment to the deeper things of the Spirit. Understanding how God’s spirit speaks to your spirit and how God’s out pouring of his spirit on you; (in terms of your gifting and your calling) is being worked out here at the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church.

There is a Shift that is happening. The maturation of our church this year will not be simply about the number of people that join the church. It will be about how we, as a people, grow deeper in our relationship with God.

The Shift is looking at how we become the people God intended for us to be, so that we might spiritually impact the community around us.

I am excited for you and I am excited about what the Lord is going to do with us this year.

Get ready for “The Shift”.
