What We Believe

About Scripture
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. The truths in these Scriptures provide principles we are to apply. We are not to shape Scripture to align with our lives, but we are to shape our lives to align with Scripture.
About God
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
About Humanity
We have a natural desire to be in CONTROL and to IGNORE God’s principles for living. The Bible calls this attitude SIN. This sin separates us from relationship with God. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
About Salvation
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the Church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.

HOW WE APPROACH BELIEFS

In essential beliefs, we have UNITY.

We define the “essential beliefs” as the foundational beliefs above. In almost every service we have these foundational beliefs present.

In non-essential beliefs, we have LIBERTY.

Our leadership team has convictions and beliefs in many other areas, and we assume you do too! Jesus came to take away our sin, not our minds. We don’t expect everyone at North Point to believe the same thing about the many expressions of Scripture and faith that make the Church so diverse. We refuse to whittle down our unity by demanding we all think “alike” in every area. Unity isn’t believing the same thing, it’s serving the same purpose.
