BISHOP JEFFERY D. GOLDSMITH × PASTOR/FOUNDER 1993
Emmanuel Tabernacle is a church that seeks to provide regular teaching and preaching of the Bible, meaningful times of worship, opportunities for fellowship, prayer, outreach and many other ministries for people of all ages.
After 19 faithful years of service in many capacities to his local church then, Elder Goldsmith, accepted God's call and opened Emmanuel Tabernacle church as a home-based ministry in April of 1993. Commissioned to reach the Northwest quadrant of Oklahoma City, and starting with only his family, services began and lives were changed. God has always been with Emmanuel and into it's 22nd year we celebrate Christ for constant salvations, baptisms, outreach, fellowship, and restoration.
Statement of Belief
We believe in the Holy Bible as being the expressed word of God and the unattested guide by which we should live (2 Timothy 3:16). We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). We believe that the Lord is Father in creation, Son in redemption and Holy Spirit in-dwelling power and that these three agree in one (Deuteronomy 6:4, Colossians 2:9). We believe in baptism of water and of the spirit and that they are elemental to living in the fullness that Christ desires for us (Acts 2:4, Acts 2:38). We believe that God is just and will reward good as well as punish evil (Ecclesiastes 12:14, Romans 2:2-11). Furthermore, we hold that God is love (1 John 4:8) and therefore gave His son as recompense so that anyone who is willing may have eternal victorious life (John 3:16).
