Our Church's Mission

Mission ~ in New York State ~ Utica ~
Tabernacle Baptist Church welcomed the first Karen refugee family to arrive in Utica into its fellowship in autumn 1999. This nine-member family, and hundreds that followed it from the refugee camps of Thailand to the Mohawk Valley, were resettled by the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees. In 2000, the congregation formed a Refugee Ministry Taskforce to help the congregation minister to the growing number of Karen refugees arriving in the community from the refugee camps on the Thailand-Burma border. This group continues to oversee the congregation’s ministry of welcome, hospitality, and service to newly arrived refugees from Burma. In September 2007, the church called the Revered Daniel Calvin San, a Karen Baptist pastor who came to the United States as a refugee, as its Associate Pastor. Today, Tabernacle Baptist Church is a congregation comprised both of long-term residents of the community and new neighbors who first came to the United States as refugees from Burma. Two languages are used: English and Karen. They are a community of faith that practices the inclusive love of God and radical hospitality and welcome of Jesus Christ. They believe that the congregation’s embracing of the ancient Christian practice of hospitality has not only resulted in the rebirth of the church, but is a living out of the values proclaimed in Isaiah 1:17, providing refuge, welcome, and community for the oppressed, the orphan, and the widow
