Joshua Gospel Tabernacle was founded in August 2000 by Reverend Lawrence T. Houston, SR. The Lord gave Rev. Houston a vision to start a community church. He placed this vision deep into this soul. Upon hearing the Lord speak to him, Rev. Houston sought out to start a church - Joshua Gospel Tabernacle.
Rev. Houston started out having bible sessions in his home, until the Lord led him to Bro. Jerry Black, the Pastor of Redemption Baptist Church. Bro. Black opened up his heart and facilities to Rev. Houston and Joshua Gospel Tabernacle. After accepting this offer, Joshua Gospel Tabernacle would have services at Redemption Baptist Church each Sunday at 2pm. This continued until the Lord led us to our current location.
Joshua has grown tremendously over the last years. We are blessed with a wonderful Assistant Pastor, Rev. Michael H. Rudolph, a mother's board, ushers, praise and worship team and musicians. However, the best growth is Joshua's continuous growth spiritually. The Lord is sending us people who want to serve and please HIM! At Joshua Gospel Tabernacle, we envision our sharing the gospel of Christ's death and resurrection with thousands of unchurched friends and people in the community, many of whom accept HIM as Savior.
We envision becoming a powerful Church in the community, a safe place where we accept one another and are accepted, love and are loved, shepherd and are shepherded, encourage and are encouraged, forgive and are forgiven, and serve and are served.
At Joshua, we thank the Lord for our many blessings, but most of all we thank the Lord that HE continues to equip our church with spiritually minded people who are willing to serve him.
