HISTORY OF NTCGI
The New Testament Church of God International (NTCGI) started here in Luzern Switzerland under the leadership of the Holy Spirit with officially all 5 members of our family since February 4, 2004. It was later recognized as a Possible Mission by Dr. Eric Brown, the then administrative Bishop of the New Testament Church of God of England and Wales, who visited us once during those times. It was later decided between Dr. Eric Brown and our family Team to have the Church registered, so as to make it officially known nationally. In this regard The New Testament Church of God International was officially registered and established in 2007.
Since its early beginnings it sought to fulfill the great commission of our dear Lord Jesus ‘Yahshua‘ to bring the good news of the Kingdom of God nearer to the people of this land. To make sure that everyone hears the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the message of Hope and Deliverance from sin, sickness, death and hell. The acceptance of Christ naturally resulted in one having this experience of real love, real joy, real peace and satisfaction. This experience is true not only for this life, but for the life to come, eternally.
We have an heritage to be proud of and do celebrate the call of God on behalf of the pioneers of the Church of God since its inception 1886 in Cleveland Tennessee, USA. This establishment is now in almost every corner of the world. Presently, the Church of God has a world-wide membership of over 7 million people with a presence in nearly 180 countries.
HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF GOD AND ITS EARLY BEGINNINGS IN USA
Ten years after the organizational meeting, a revival at the Shearer Schoolhouse in nearby Camp Creek, North Carolina, introduced the doctrine of sanctification to the community. Opposition to this doctrine led to severe persecution, but a spirit of revival prevailed and the Holiness believers experienced an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that included speaking in tongues and divine healing. Such experiences prepared the way for the explosion of the Pentecostal movement in the early twentieth century.
