We believe that God designed the family to be the primary disciple-making relationship. In other words God gave parents the privilege of nurturing faith in the next generation. Although this may sound simple it does not just happen. Unless parents are growing in their relationship with Jesus and demonstrating an authentic love for Christ that results in a home where the fruits of the Spirit are seen, then why would our children want our faith? It is only through this growing relationship that we can truly learn to be a Godly husband, wife, parent or child. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Prov. 22:6, Josh. 24:15, Eph. 5 22-33, Eph. 6:1-4)
At North Bible Church we are committed to encourage, empower and equip families, all families, whatever their make-up, to bring Christ into the center of their homes.
You will realize very quickly that North is a church with lots of families. Although we have something for your children–no matter their age–we are very committed to making sure everyone in your family feels part of our Sunday worship experience. With that in mind, children and students (K-twelfth grade) participate in the first part of the worship service. We believe providing a common spiritual experience will help you build a stronger family and encourage your family’s faith at home.
No matter what life stage you are in or pain you may have endured on your faith journey, we want to empower you to be the spiritual leader in your home. Our staff and volunteers work hard to ensure that North is a place where authentic “life on life” ministry happens. This may come through the Sunday worship service, a small group, a casual conversation with someone on Sunday morning or any number of ways.
There are many ways in which we equip people, especially parents, to live out their faith in their homes.
