What we're ABOUT
It’s not a building. It’s not programs. The Church is about PEOPLE fulfilling God’s PURPOSE! At Northpointe our mission is:
TO HELP ALL PEOPLE MOVE TOWARD A LIFE FULLY DEVOTED TO JESUS CHRIST
So what does “a life fully devoted to Jesus Christ” look like anyway? We believe it’s someone who passionately pursues a:
LOVE for GOD. LOVE for EACH OTHER. LOVE for THE WORLD.
What we DO
At Northpointe, in order to help a person become “a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ”, we’re asking everyone to make the “Big 3 Commitment”:
1. WORSHIP on the WEEKENDS
2. GET in a GROUP
3. SERVE SOMEWHERE
The Values That Shape Us
Our Core Beliefs
You will find that the following values shape our ministry and make Northpointe Community Church
"A Place For People Like You."
A Relaxed Atmosphere ~ The word Real describes us...it doesn't matter to us whether you wear your Sunday best or come in jeans and Birkenstock's.
A Loving Environment ~ The word Acceptance describes us...whoever you are we're sure you'll fit.
Relational Structure ~ The phrase People-Oriented describes us...it's not about buildings and programs, it's about helping you develop great relationships with others.
Relevant Preaching, Teaching and Training ~ The word Monday describes us...whatever you learn from the Word of God you'll be able to use it on Monday (and every other day of the week...guaranteed!)
Contemporary Worship ~ The word Joy describes our worship...we worship Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior which puts joy in His heart and joy in ours.
Strategically Driven ~ The phrase Make Disciples describes our ministry...we have a reason for doing what we do...we dislike the phrase "we've always done it that way."
God Dependent ~ The word Prayer describes us...we believe we could do everything well, but if we fail to pray, nothing significant will happen. Prayer is the muscle that moves the arm of God.
THE BIBLE is God's message to man, recorded without error in the original manuscripts.
GOD exists in three distinct persons who are the same in nature but distinctive in functions: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit-Tri-Unity.
JESUS CHRIST, the eternal Son of God was born of a virgin, literally rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, is undiminished deity and perfect humanity permanently united in one person. It was through His sacrificial death on the cross that He removed once and for all the barrier of sin between God and man.
HOLY SPIRIT is a person who permanently indwells every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides every believer with gifts for service and with the fullness of God's power to make him adequate for living. As he acts in dependence upon the Spirit, he will progressively grow into maturity.
MAN is created in the image of God, yet he is fallen in his sinfulness.
SALVATION is the unearned gift from God to any man who will receive in dependence the provision that Christ's death is the sufficient and necessary requirement for eternal life.
THE CHURCH is the visible expression of God's kingdom in this age and is distinct from Israel. Membership in it is based solely upon a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. THE LOCAL CHURCH is an assembly of believers gathering together in community with each other to be a visible expression of Jesus Christ in their families, cities, and world and to stimulate growth in each other's lives.
THE ORDINANCES are to be observed commemorating Christ's works for the church: Baptism and the Lord's Supper/Communion. Baptism is practiced by individuals as a symbolic expression of personal identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. The Lord's Supper/Communion is practiced as a symbolic reminder of His provision for salvation for the church.
Christ-Centered -- Everything at Northpointe Community Church flows out of our mission to "help all people move toward a life fully-devoted to Jesus Christ."
Elder-Led -- The Elders of the Church lead by example and direct the affairs of the church. They, along with the staff, set the vision and spiritual tone of the church. The pastors and staff team have the primary responsibility for carrying out the mission and vision of the church on a day-to-day basis. The elders and pastors work in tandem to insure Northpointe remains biblically sound and culturally connected.
