WHY OUR CHURCH
Welcome to the website of the New Testament Church of God Faith Tabernacle. We are a multicultural church in the heart of Cheetham Hill, North Manchester, and as you search the pages of this website you will find that we are more than a building or place of worship. We are a church in the community, for the community; caring and compassionate - a church where Jesus is at the centre of our worship. Our principal mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations. We therefore welcome people from all racial and ethnic groups. The Early Christian Church, birth on the Day of Pentecost, showed how impacting a church can be, as it serves the community and demonstrated the seven characteristics of a Spirit-filled church (see Acts 2:42-47). For example:
1: Teaching and Discipleship – believers were discipled and nourished continually in the apostle's teaching – the Word, so that they became a Word-centred church.
2: Fellowship – believers not only nourished and developed a vertical relationship to God, but also horizontally in fellowship with each other – displaying a warm, honest and open relationship based upon a common life together in Christ.
3: Breaking of bread - an act of true fellowship and in accordance with the teachings of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
4: Prayer – embodies the very life and ministry of believers.
5: Miraculous signs and wonders – demonstrating the presence and power of the Holy Spirit among the believers and impacting their witness to unbelievers. As a result, the church grew.
6: Sharing community – C. S. Lewis says, "All human beings are made for life in community with God." Not many people on earth have experienced community like the early church.
7: Making disciples – they exemplified a righteous and holy lifestyle, and by so doing effectively permeated the community they served, which resulted in new converts being added to the church daily.
