North Manchester is greatly under served by faithful Bible believing churches. Many leaders in the North West have identified this as a place of great need. Our vision is to see a faithful, Bible teaching church, established where there is a need in north of Manchester.
And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left – and also man animals?
There are 2.8 million people in the Greater Manchester area. Although many people would nominally identify themselves as Christians, regular church attendance in Manchester is one of the lowest in the country. Even just attending church for Christmas and Easter is only at around 3% of the population. While there are a number of Bible teaching churches in the south of Manchester, there are less in the northern part of the city. That said we delight that there are faithful churches in North Manchester which serve as a gospel witness, however there is need for much more. Our desire is to research and work alongside those already in North Manchester, to establish a bible teaching, gospel centred church in north Manchester.
The aim is to establish a church to glorify God by making disciples of Christ teaching, disciples from the Bible to grow in Christ and equipping disciples to live out that teaching in every part of life, for the good of their neighbour and the glory of God.
Proclaiming Christ to those who do not know Him so that they might come to a living faith in Him.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...”
Proclaiming Christ to those who know Him so that they would be deeply rooted in Him.
“...as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him …”
Proclaiming Christ to those who know Him so they would be equipped to serve one another, the wider church and the world.
“…to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”
