Our Congregation

Redemption Tabernacle Pentecostal Church is a family. Our vision is to promote salvation, to give every man, woman, and child the opportunity to experience a relationship with God to grow and develop in ministry for the honor and glory of God, regardless to race, creed, or social status.

Our Approach

Redemption Tabernacle Pentecostal Church began in 1992 under the leadership of Reverend Peter Piper and Minister Beverly Musgrave from the island of Dominica, West Indies. RTPC consists of members from the United States, Ghana and various islands throughout the West Indies such as Dominica, Antigua, Grenada, Guyana, St. Lucia, Belize, Barbados, Trinidad, St. Vincent, St. Kitts Jamaica and Haiti.

In the early years, RTPC moved from several locations and rigorously searched for a permanent place of worship. In 2009, the Lord blessed them with a permanent location, which was purchased and renovated by members of the congregation. In 2011, RTPC sponsored a 6-village crusade to the island of Dominica including Roseau, Cockran, Castle Bruce Petite Savanne, Wesley, River Cyrique, and Marigot. Then in 2013, RTPC sponsored another project known as “Investing In Your Foundation” – which was an island wide crusade that sought to bring various churches together.

During the past years, RTPC has been fortunate in hosting the Annual Dominica Independence Celebrations. Some of their most memorable guests include: The President of Dominica, Mrs. Nicholas Liverpool, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, Ambassador Vince Henderson, former Ambassador Mr. Crispin Gregory, and Secretary to the Permanent Mission, Mrs. Barbara Daly. Currently, Pastor Piper is overseeing a vibrant and growing work in Easton, Pennsylvania under the leadership of Pastor and Evangelist Heron Barclay. As RTPC continues to grow, it is their desire to reach out to the community and launch out in new area of ministries.

RTPC services can be heard on trueliferradio.net every Sunday from 10:30 – 1:30.

Senior Pastor

Pastor Peter Piper was born in Cochrane, Dominica to Joseph and the late Delina Piper. He was raised in the village of Cochrane, along with his 6 brothers and 1 sister. At the young age of 21, Peter gave his life to Christ. He was actively involved in the Roseau Pentecostal Church under the ministry of mighty men of God like Missionary Dubrosky and Scheske and Pastor James Bell. He was eventually enrolled in The West Indies School of Theology in Trinidad. In 1982, Peter and Yvonne got married and moved to ministry in Marigot, Dominica.

After several years of serving as the head pastors of the Marigot Pentecostal Church, the Pipers migrated to the United States in 1990. Pastor Piper served as Assistant Pastor of Sisters of Zion in Newark, NJ. There, Pastor Piper saw the need to bring together fellow Dominicans so in 1993, Redemption Tabernacle Pentecostal Church was founded in Newark with the assistance of Minister Beverly Musgrave and a few fellow Dominicans.
