Started in 1998 by three families with a passion for God. NorthPointe Church was started in a living room then it soon moved to a local high school auditorium. It wasn't long until God showed the elders where he wanted them to build our current building in 2001. NorthPointe Church is an all-volunteer church. Everyone from the person who cleans the toilets to the pastor serves willingly and without pay. There is much more to our story that you can hear from Pastor Jim below.

NorthPointe Church Statement of Faith
In order to clearly articulate the elements of our faith, we agree to the following essential doctrines:
1. ABOUT GOD God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Gen. 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Ps. 90:2; Matt 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2
2. ABOUT JESUS CHRIST Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matt.1:22-23; Is 9:6; John 1:1-5,14:10-30; Titus 2:13 Heb. 4:14-15; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; Rom. 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Tim. 6:14-15
3. ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
2 Cor. 3:17; John 16: 7-13, 14: 16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12, 3:16, 12:11; Eph. 1:13; Gal. 5:25; Eph. 5:1
4. ABOUT THE BIBLE The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 2 Tim. 1:13; Ps. 119:105, 160, 12:6; Pro. 30:5
5. ABOUT PEOPLE People are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. However, the image of God in man was marred through sin and he is now a sinner alienated from God. Within himself, man has no ability or desire to belong to God.
Gen. 1:27; Ps. 8:3-6; Is. 53:6a; Rom. 3:23; Is. 59:1-2
6. ABOUT SALVATION Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Rom. 6:23; Eph 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Gal.3:26; Rom. 5:1
7. ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
John 10:29; 2 Tim. 1:12; Heb. 7:25; 10: 10, 14; 1 Peter 1: 3-5
8. ABOUT ETERNITY People are created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; 2:25; 5:11-13; Rom. 6:23; Rev. 20:15; Matt. 1:8
