What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of North Christian Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.  These
three are co-equal and are one God.
(Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19,
2 Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2)

The Father

We believe that God the Father holds all the attributes of God while exercising a unique role in the triune God.  He is the father of
Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and yet still one with both as God. The Father adopts believers into relationship with
Him as their Father. With Christ, believers have the privilege of being heirs to God’s glory.  He actively disciplines believers to
strengthen them for His glory.
(Luke 1:35; Matthew 3:17; Romans 8:15-17; John 15:1-2; Hebrews 12:7-11)

The Son

Jesus is the Son of God and co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as
the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people on the cross. He defeated death by rising on the 3rd day. Jesus ascended into heaven
and will return again someday to claim His own and spend eternity with them.
(Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5,
14:10-30; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrew 4:14-15; Matthew 16:13-38)

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to convict men of their need for Jesus
Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for carrying out God’s
desires, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing what is right, and is our intercessor.
(John 14:16 & 26, 16:7-14, 17;
Acts 1:8; Romans 8:26-27; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; II Corinthians 3:16-17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13, Ephesians 5:18.)


We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned and is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ, whose death, burial,
and resurrection opened the way for salvation. We believe the Bible clearly teaches that all believers need to confess and repent
of sin, follow the Biblical command to be immersed, and strive to live faithfully committed to Christ.
(Genesis 1:27, 3:6-7;
Matthew 5:16; Matthew 10:32; Mark 16:16; John 1:12; Acts 2:37-38, 3:19, 4:11-12; 17:30; Romans 3:23-24; Ephesians 2:8; II
Peter 1:3)

The Bible

The Bible is God’s living Word to us without error and was written by men under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is
the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
(Psalms 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5-6; Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy
3:16-17; I Peter 1:25; II Peter 1:20-21 & 3:15-16)
