Passion. People Purpose. That's what our mission is all about. Our vision is what we're striving for and our values, THE NORTHGATE 9, are how we operate. We hope that you will experience all of this as you spend time at Northgate!
Northgate Church is passionate about helping people become who God purposed them to be.
Northgate Church is a Jesus-following, Spirit-moving, compassion-loving community where people find their purpose.
We envision an outwardly-focused, biblically-grounded, multi-generational, deliberately-diverse, leader-developing, people-sending church. Not an audience, but an army!
We envision a Spirit-filled, soul-swaying, life-changing church, where people are released in praise, prayer, and healing and are equipped to become who God purposed them to be.
We envision a Christ-centered, radically-loving, excessively-compassionate church who serves rather than be served, who gives rather than takes, and who blesses rather than curses.
1 We won't shut up. We can't stop talking about Jesus. In Him we find life and forgiveness, hope and peace, healing, freedom, and purpose. We want everyone to know God, and will risk just about anything to get the word out.
2 We are lean and mean. We choose to do a few things well and wholeheartedly, not several things poorly and halfheartedly.
3 We hang together. Everyone is going to hang out together in heaven some day, so we might as well start practicing now.
4 We are downwardly mobile. We want to go lower and serve deeper. Jesus said, “The last will be first,” and frankly, we're competitive.
5 We are weird, because normal isn't working. Following Jesus is counter cultural. Transformation is weird to the world around us, but normal here.
6 We innovatively teach the Bible. We don’t shy away from the deep truths of Scripture. We use simple, non-religious language and culture, as well as humor and the arts, to communicate the message of Jesus in its entirety and to apply it to our lives.
7 We like to party. We joyfully expend resources worshiping God and leading others to Him. He is worthy of more than anything we can offer.
8 We rely on God ...mostly because we have to. Jesus said, “Apart from me you can do nothing.” So, we are a church who prays all the time, leans on the Holy Spirit, and leaves the results to God.
9 We do for a few what we’d like to do for many. While we can’t do everything for everyone, we make a concerted effort to practice peace, generously care for those in need, and bless the most vulnerable in our community and around the world.
