At Northside Baptist Church our purpose is to lead each person in our church family to Know God, Grow in Community, and Go to the World. We believe that through these purposes we will grow closer to God, both as individuals and collectively as a church. Each part of our mission statement provides opportunities for every member of our church family to measure their personal journey with God. It also serves as an excellent gauge for what every person, new or regular attender, can expect from Northside.
We have developed three icons to help you recognize and remember Northside’s three-part mission.
It is vital that you Know God. However, our desire is not for you to merely have knowledge of some facts about God, but we want you to experience God in salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. Beyond that we want you to grow in that relationship through ongoing discipleship in the study of God’s Word.
Growing in Community is a way for us to build authentic, life-changing relationships with others. We all need to be in genuine community with other believers to help us grow in our relationship with Jesus. As followers of Christ we are called to bear one another’s burdens, serve one another, love one another, forgive one another, fellowship with one another, etc. within the community of the church.
We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful and changes lives. That is why we want to be faithful in taking the good news of our Savior to those in our community and beyond. Our desire is to be a body of believers on mission for Jesus Christ, expanding the kingdom of God.
Our mission at Northside Baptist Church represents a common goal for growth and maturity for every individual involved in our church. It is a clear, concise statement for our church as a whole. We recognize that for our members to grow and be challenged, we must have a common course. If we are not accomplishing this purpose, then we are not doing what we are supposed to do as a church.
