About Us

Northgate Community Church was established in Manteca, CA by the Brethren Church, who is headquartered in the small Midwest town of Ashland Ohio.  Northgate was established in 1920, and has played a significant part in the community for over 100 years. We strive to continue to grow in Christ's influence in the lives of our neighbors.


 The Brethren Church has its roots in Germany, as an outgrowth of the Anabaptist and Pietistic traditions.  We've been in the US (Pennsylvania was our first church) since the early 18th Century.  


More about our denomination is available on the denomination homepage.  In short, we have a high value on simplicity of living and relationships and challenge each generation to make their faith their own in a way that drives each group back to the scriptures. We strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a world that is starving for him.
