Our purpose, priorities &
who we are as a church and staff.

Our Mission…

Our mission is to “bring people to Jesus Christ, build them up in that relationship and send them out to share His love.

These are the things we consider to be most important in the way we conduct our ministry at Northgate. These values set our direction, guide our decisions and characterize our behavior and attitudes.

We value…

• The Bible as the divinely inspired word of God, for humankind, for all time

• Relationships characterized by honesty, openness and vulnerability

• Facilitating lifelong spiritual growth in followers of Jesus

• Making the gospel relevant to our culture and community

• Celebrating God and what God is doing

• Empowering people to serve through their God-given gifts

• The power of prayer

• Teaching children  and young people to know and love God
