We service a popluation of approximately 13,161 in our city and several thousands in the surrounding areas. We have a heart for people. We preach and teach the Gospel message as was taught by Jesus to His disciples, with annointing and power. We believe that true heart felt worship must be given to God. Our praise team does an excellent job in each service. We have a great Sunday school department for all ages with gifted teachers. We offer a FREE in-home study of God's word to assist those who perhaps are unable to attend service. Faith Tabernacle assists the new convert by offering discipleship classes, for all ages, to teach them God's word and give direction for their new life in Christ. Come grow with us!

Our Services

What are services like?
The annointed preaching or teaching of God's word is the primary focus for each service. Praise is also a great part of each service. Dedicated praise singers bring an atmosphere of worship. Come and expect a friendly smile and handshake or maybe even a hug of friendship when you walk in the door. We welcome the presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ in each service.




Our Pastor: Rev. William D. Laird Jr. was born in Ashtabula, Ohio. He was raised in a small town in Ohio called Adena. His family owned a restaurant and tavern where he was a bartender. After finishing high school in 1974, he entered the United State Air Force. Upon completion of basic training, Pastor Laird returned home to marry a young lady that had caught his eye. Although he was not raised in a Christian home, God allowed this young lady with a Pentecostal heritage to become part of his life. They were transfered to Tuscon, Arizona in 1975 where they began to build their life together. Upon arriving in Tucson, they began church shopping. They longed for the friendships and fellowship that they had left behind in Ohio. In September of 1975 they visited Faith Tabernacle, pastored by Rev. Jerry Conner . Soon, God began to speak to his heart about the need for salvation. God filled him with the Holy Ghost in April of 1976 only a short time before their only son, Christopher, was born in May of 1976, on his birthday. Pastor Laird immediately became involved in evangelism. They were involved wth driving the Sunday School bus, teaching Sunday School, singing in the church choir and teaching home Bible studies. He was licensed with the United Pentecostal Church International in 1981. He was mentored by Pastor Conner until God began to deal with him to return back east to start a "Faith Tabernacle" in Pennsylvania. Pastor Laird has a great burden for the lost! He strongly believes in teaching others the plan of salvation, thus preparing them for the return of the Lord for His Church. His goal is to reach as many souls in New Kensington and the surrounding areas with the Gospel of Jesus Christ before the Lord's return.
