We are a group of disciples seeking to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). We seek to follow only Jesus Christ, holding to the New Testament as our only creed. Feel free to connect with us about any questions.

teaching

We look for opportunities to teach one another and our friends, neighbors, and colleagues.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16, ESV)

“This group of Christians taught me about Jesus. My wife had been a Christian for years before we met so I ‘married into the family.’ Various members encouraged me to study and we studied together on-and-off over several months. They patiently answered my questions and helped me learn what I needed to know. As I continue to grow, I am thankful for this congregation who encourage me to learn more and follow God’s word.”

“Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.” (Titus 2:7-8, ESV)

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing…And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14, ESV) 


Serving

Do you love to help others? Are you looking for Christians that will help you in times of struggle?

“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”(James 2:14-17, ESV)

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2, ESV)

“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:1-4, ESV)

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:35-40, ESV)

“We have been so blessed by this congregation. You expect to find love among Christians, but the love in this group is special. There is a heartfelt commitment to one another that shows in our eagerness to serve each other. This is a family that takes care of each other, prays for each other, and loves to be together.”

Unity

Sure, unity requires a lot of patience, love, and humility, but relying on God’s Word as our standard helps us to stay united in our fellowship as God has called us to do.

“May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” (Romans 15:5-7, ESV)

The members here at North Church of Christ are like a big family. It’s a family of brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers, and lots of children. We come together to praise God. We pray to him, we sing to him and we study and teach his word. The ultimate goal is to bring everyone closer to God.
— Phil & Diane

“Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” (2 Corintians 13:11, ESV)

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God. (Philippians 1:27-28, ESV


    fellowship

    Christians of the North Church of Christ are in fellowship with each other daily:

    “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7, ESV)

    “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42, ESV)

    The North Church of Christ is a group of Christians with a strong sense of fellowship. This is evident in multiple ways from our weekly worship services and Bible studies, as well as time spent with each other sharing a meal, being in each others homes, or just simply talking with each other and being there for each other.

    “We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.” (2 Thessalonians 1:3, ESV)

    “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35, ESV)

    “Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.” (1 Peter 4:9, ESV)

    We can’t fully rely upon ourselves or our feelings as an authority in religion. We must recognize and obey God’s authority, which is given in the Bible. We trust the elders at North will lead us in pleasing and honoring God in our worship.
    — Jason & Tracy

    Authority

    God provided us a record of the early churches in the New Testament that is our pattern for today. “Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 1:13, ESV)

    A few examples of areas in which we believe that the New Testament pattern provides an example of how we are to organize our church are:

    • Our church is an independent, local church, accountable to God only
    • Our church is led by elders
    • Our assemblies are organized as we believe New Testament assemblies were organized
    • As a collective body, we choose to do only those works which we see local churches doing in the New Testament

    These practices may make us a little different from other churches that you have visited or become familiar with. If you would like to know more about why we choose these things, we would love to discuss it with you further!

    “I think sometimes we get the idea that God is distant and unreachable, that He is so far above us that we cannot know Him or understand His word, or that we need someone with greater knowledge or faith to tell us what to do. But Deuteronomy 30:11-14 assures us that He is right next to us. If we REALLY WANT to know the truth, we can find it.”
    — Dave

    Deuteronomy 30:11-14: For this commandment that I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, “Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?” Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, “Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it.” But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it. (ESV)
