Ephphatha Church, also known as Faith Tabernacle, is a historic Episcopal church at 220 W. Geer Street in Durham, Durham County, North Carolina. It was built in 1930, and is a small, one-story, six-bay deep, Gothic Revival style brick building. It is one of only four churches in the United States built exclusively for a deaf congregation. The Episcopal Diocese rented the Ephphatha Church building to another congregation from 1977 until early 1981, then sold the building.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
