(NTCF’s positive future.  A map of the journey and statement of the goal)


Our overriding ambition is to see God the Father’s hope in calling men fulfilled. To this end, we seek foremost to live in vibrant communion with His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  In the midst of our self-serving society, we willingly embrace His discipline for the purpose of developing godly character.  As a diverse, interdependent community of followers, we will sacrificially love and serve one another until His church family reflects the full glory, character and authority that belong to Christ.  Recognizing our Lord’s commission to go into all the world, we receive God’s grace to enable us to do all things for the sake of the gospel. In response to the Lord’s great love, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we unreservedly give ourselves to a life of consecration to Him.  We offer our time, talents and resources, to see His kingdom come and His will done, not only in our lives, but also in the lives of others in Manchester, the surrounding communities, and even distant lands.  Working alongside other churches with whom He joins us, we will labor together in love until Jesus Christ comes to have preeminence in the hearts of all men.
