About the Tabernacle

Ocean City, NJ was established in 1879 as a “Christian seashore retreat” with the Ocean City Tabernacle at its social and spiritual center. Now, more than 140 years later, Ocean City remains “America’s greatest family resort” with the Tabernacle still a significant center of worship and outreach as “a family ministry center where the gospel of Jesus Christ is central.” Our mission is to help people know God through the Bible; help people worship God in spirit and in truth; and help strengthen families in Ocean City and beyond.
