They moved without having to turn around

The Lord wants us, as Christians, to pay attention to the way we make efforts, directing our lives according to His will. He wants us to be wise people; He desires that our church might achieve the exact purpose He has determined for us.


Folk groups

The Tatar fellowship was started in the year 2000. A group of Christian-Tatars from the “Philadelphia” Church decided to unify with an aim to bring the Gospel to the Tatars. We have a strong desire to show Christ to our relatives, friends, and neighbors. The main goal of opening that fellowship was to help Muslims to come to church without obstacles and problems.

About us


Senior pastor Pavel Zhelnovakov

I was born in a Christian family. In 1960, our family moved from the Caucuses to Mariupol in the Ukraine. Unfortunately, when I was young, I rebelled against Christ. But God worked through various methods to teach me in spite of this. Almost every Sunday in the evenings we hosted people at our home for services. I could not escape those meetings, so I was forced to be involved with them and they gave me food for thought.
