Welcome to Tabitha’s Closet!
Tabitha became known for her acts of charity. The Bible tell us that she learned to sew and make garments for the poor. Her fingers and funds were used to comfort and relieve the needy. She became a disciple of Jesus Christ and was a member of the church in Jaffa. Her humanitarian activities were motivated through her desire to share the gospel and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. She was raised from the dead and experienced a life of miracles.
Through Tabitha’s Closet, you have the opportunity to have a miracle in your life. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved” (Acts 16:31).
