What We Believe

Northminster is a living response to the radical grace of God, whose forgiving and transforming love has been perfectly revealed in Jesus Christ. Therefore, our faith is:

Christ-centered

Colossians 1:19-20 (NRSV) 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.

Evangelical (from the Greek “euangelion” = Gospel or good news)

Mark 16:15 (NRSV) And Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.”

Spirit-empowered

Acts 1:8 (NRSV) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Word-based

John 17:8,17 (NRSV)
8” for the words that you gave to me I have given to them, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.”

17“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”

Mission-shaped

John 20:21 (NRSV) Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
