Tabernacle Baptist Church, Decatur, IL, has a rich heritage of faithful men and women who love the Lord and His church. It was organized January 10, 1938. The new church was constituted on January 30, 1938 with a total of 75 charter members and was officially named Tabernacle Baptist Church. The church immediately sought affiliation with the Illinois Baptist State Association and the Southern Baptist Convention. During our 69 1/2 years we have had only six Pastors. At the present time, our enrollment is approximately 1,200, our average worship attendance is 760, and our Bible Study attendance is 520. In 2004, we moved into a completely new facility with seating for 1,200. In addition to our blended service, we recently added a contemporary service.
