Our Vision

We believe that a life in Christ is better than a life without Him, consequently, we've set out to build the greatest and most influential church on Long Island.  Why? Because everything God creates He creates for growth.  This vision rests upon 3 indispensable values which are the driving force of our vision.


We passionately value God’s love for us and for others.  This is the essence of all God is and we believe we’ve been called to reflect that love with everyone we encounter.


Building a church is NOT about building buildings but rather about building people up.  For this reason, we will strive to build others through Christ-centered discipleship.


As sons and daughters of God we are vessels of Honor.  Therefore, we will Honor God in everything and with everything we think, say and do.


To accomplish great things we must first dream, then visualize, then plan… believe… act!



God is a giver. Because of His deep love for us, He gave us the ultimate gift of eternal life with Him through Christ. Christian Tabernacle Long Island is committed to modeling this spirit of giving, and one of the primary ways we can do this is through returning our tithes to God and giving offerings with a cheerful heart for “God loves a cheerful giver”.
