It all started while…
Driving along the congested roadways of route 287, De’Andre Salter heard God’s direction: replant the church of your forefathers in South Plainfield to reach the very people driving on these roads and to help them find Christ. Without any personal connections to rely on, De’Andre joined by his beautiful wife Terri, their four children, his loyal family members (including his mother and pastor, Rev. Emma Salter) and church mothers from Joy Tabernacle Christian Ministries in Newark, set out on the adventure of a lifetime.
With a vision to see people intentionally use their time, talent, and money to make a Christ impact in the world, Joy Tabernacle was renamed The Tabernacle Church in 2009, we became completely emerged in the culture of Central NJ.
Then in June 2016, a prophetic word was released that we were to take a name that better reflected our God-given mission and vision, so we rebranded as Impact Church.
Our plan is simple….
FOCUS ON OUR CHRIST-CENTRIC MISSION
To lead people to become committed disciples of Jesus.
REALIZE OUR VISION
To see people intentionally using their time, talent and money to make a Christ impact in the world.
STAY TRUE TO OUR CORE 6…..
WE ARE GOD PLEASERS. We never offend God with small or safe, we WOW God by being faith-filled big thinkers.
WE ARE A TRIBE. Ride or die; we are formed by Christ to work together, love each other, cry together and ultimately have fun. We are one life-giving voice, one people.
WE GIVE UNTIL IT HURTS. We are not here to receive, but to give compulsively from our hearts, with no limits.
WE STRIVE TO MAKE THE BEST BETTER. We are not perfectionists, but excellence is the standard in everything we do.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO INTEGRITY. We honor Christ and His church. Nothing else matters. We do the right stuff and quit the wrong.
WE ARE FEARLESS. We want to revolutionize the way to reach people no one else is reaching so we must do what no one else is doing.
Your Reason To Connect Is Clear…
If you connect with the Impact family we promise that you will:
KNOW GOD THROUGH OUR WORSHIP SERVICES
We believe in family. Strong families start with solid God foundations. If your life is renewed by Christ, your family will be healed. When your family is healed, your neighborhood will be changed. When your neighborhood is healed, it will impact your community. If we heal a community, we heal a people! That’s what IMPACT Church is all about. We want your faith, family and finances all healed so that you can serve God passionately.
FIND FREEDOM THROUGH OUR SMALL GROUPS
Our church isn't a building—it's a people. We meet in small groups around the state and globally online. No matter where you join us, we think you'll find friendly people who are excited to get to know you!
DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE THROUGH OUR GROWTH TRACK
You have value. So, wherever you find yourself in life, remember you matter and God made you with purpose. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it via our Growth Track. You don't have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you.
POSITIVELY IMPACT THE COMMUNITY THROUGH OUR DREAM TEAMS
We are passionate about serving the community and demonstrating God's love to others. That’s why we help people grow from being spiritual consumers to spiritual contributors. Every volunteer in our church is a leader. We will allow you to use your God-given abilities to help reach more families with the Gospel - the best social activism is activating the Gospel in our communities, one family at a time.
