"Welcome to the New Testament Church of God, Reading website! I am glad that you have taken the time to explore and learn more about our church.
Let us look to Christ Jesus for strengthened Faith, and deeper conviction which underscores our trust in God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For 2019 our scriptural theme is “Reigniting Pentecost”. Why? There is a recognized absence of Pentecostal Flame, within many Churches, religious media programs, and discussion. Much emphasis is placed on prosperity, healing, and hyperbole sermons, without reference to the Power of the Holy Spirit.
There’s nothing like the Holy Spirit to Empower us, as Christians in Christ’s church, it’s to get our spiritual adrenalin revived and refocused.
On the day of Pentecost, God literally and profoundly moved for all to see, to feel His Spirit in all its Glory and in all its power; this coming of the Holy Spirit sparked the birth of what we call today The Christian Church.
The Holy Spirit is a gift and one of the outpourings of the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues.
“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind…. they saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them, and they were all filled with the Holy spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” Acts 2:2-4
As a Pastor, I pray daily and speak in tongues, I would love that all believers in Christ would pray for the Gift of Tongues and do speak in tongues. This wonderful Gift and Power – Authority - to be witnesses as those who were in that room on the day of Pentecost.
Not only do we need to spend 2019 revisiting what happened on the day of Pentecost, we desperately need to call upon the Holy Spirit to reignite that Pentecostal Fire in us and work its Power and Fire through us every day; when we go out to earn a living, when we go to school, in our homes, in our marriages and here in our Church.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place” Acts 2:1
Never discount the importance of God’s people living and worshipping in a Spirit of Unity, of Oneness. The Spirit of Oneness is one of the most important assets that any Church can have, we always need to pray for it that there will be Unity in the Church amongst God’s people.
None of us can move forward back to back but we can move forward side by side.
May the blessings of God the Father and the Love of Christ fill you with His Holy Spirit to live a life of victory over the adversary that may challenge your daily life.
Come visit us, we’d love to see you!
