Greater Love Tabernacle
"A Heart for People"
The Vision of Greater Love Tabernacle is to develop individuals and families through the following:
Spiritual Training - Through the word of God, prayer and other Christian disciplines, believers will be trained to make a spiritual impact upon our society. Spiritual sons and daughters will be equipped and empowered to establish affiliate churches and ministries throughout the land. We plan to be an important part of the revival, which is coming to revisit New England.
Economic Development - Businesses and partnerships will be formed to help stabilize the economy within our communities. New entrepreneurs will be trained and assisted to start business ventures. A Community Development Corporation will be formed to focus on purchasing properties for sale and rent. Through our CDC, people will be empowered to control their financial destiny. We will increase home ownership among our congregation. Our constituents will continue to be taught the importance of being producers and not just consumers.
General Education - Our aim as a church will continue to focus on eradicating illiteracy within our congregation and beyond. Through our training center youth and adults will learn the necessary skills to advance in life. Tutoring will be provided for all ages. We will work with at risk youth and troubled adults to help them be reoriented back into the main stream of our society.
Health Education - We will continue to have a health education clearinghouse in order to inform and educate people on various health issues. The Healthy Family Network will be a catalyst to bring agencies together to promote holistic development. The network will train leaders and bring people together. The Family Conference will continue to be an annual event, which will highlight the work of the network. We will teach classes on health and nutrition. In, addition we will have an exercise room for aerobic workouts and fitness training.
Social Action - Our church will continue to inspire others to become involved with various issues such as homelessness, unemployment, social injustices, homicides and more. By working on certain agendas Christians can become closer to one another. This bond is vital to make a tangible impact upon our society. We believe the social Gospel has a critical role to play within the lives of urban dwellers. Jesus is not just concern about our spirits but he wants us to be completely whole.
