Nouvo Lavi Tabènak is a vibrant, joyful, welcoming, and responsive church in the greater Tampa Bay community. We are passionate about meeting the natural and spiritual needs of our community.
Under the leadership of Bishop Daniel M. Davy and Pastor Rashidi F. Collins, we held our first service on November 7, 2021. As part of the New Life Tabernacle Family of Churches, Nouvo Lavi Tabènak is part of a great vision to reach all cultures within Florida. As a result, Nouvo Lavi Tabènak is here to not only serve the Haitian community within the bay area and Haiti, but we are here to serve everyone seeking a greater purpose.
What we believe
We believe there is only one God. This one God is the creator of the heavens, Earth, and all mankind. This one God is Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Ghost in regeneration and activity. He is the first and the last, and there is no God beside Him.
We believe salvation consists of deliverance from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ- the name of the one God. Salvation is therefore accomplished through repentance from sin, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (removal) of sins, and receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (John 3:3-5, Acts 2:38, Acts 8:12-18, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-6, Acts 22:16).

The following are the core beliefs of Nouvo Lavi Tabènak based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is one God: the creator of the heavens, the earth, and all mankind. This one God is Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Ghost in regeneration and activity. He is the ﬁrst and the last; there is no God beside him (Genesis 1:1, John 1:1; 14, Isaiah 44:6-8; Isaiah 9:6, 1 Timothy 3:16).
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
Salvation consists of deliverance from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through repentance from sin, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. This experience is called the New Birth (John 3:5, Acts 2:38).
Prayer is the avenue of communication in which man forms a relationship with God. This is achieved when connecting with God is a priority, resulting in spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical change (1 Timothy 2:1-3, Isaiah 56:7).
Discipleship reflects Christ’s character. Systematic instruction, mentorship, training, and development is at the core of producing people who align themselves to love God and love others. This love causes individuals to come back to Christ, live a life that is pleasing to Him, and fulfill the mandate to continue Christ’s mission to seek and save the lost (Galatians 5:22-26, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
Serving God translates to being servants of our community. Meeting the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs of others will result in stronger and healthier communities (Matthew 25:36, Luke 14:12-14).
To present the full Gospel of Jesus Christ, transforming non-Christians into converts, converts into disciples, and disciples into mature, passionate, and fruitful community leaders. Our mission is accomplished through prayer, preaching, ministries, programs, and community engagement- that demonstrate the love of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18, 1 Corinthians 11:1).
To continue Christ’s mission to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10).
