True North is a family of people dedicated to living out our lives for Jesus Christ. We are committed to letting God’s inspired revelation, the Bible, be our authority and guide.
We desire to see people living satisfied, Holy Spirit led lives filled with the hope, joy, love, confidence, and purpose that come from knowing the forgiveness and new life available to use through Jesus Christ.
Our primary purpose as a Christian church is to fulfill the command given by Jesus:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matt 28:18-20 ESV)
At True North we best accomplish this mission with this simple focus: “Sharing God’s Love and Inviting People into a Life-Changing Relationship with Jesus.”
Sharing God’s Love
Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13). This is the kind of love God has for you and I. Even when we ignore the life He wants for us, He chose to show His love for us by sending His only Son to live among us and then offer His own life as a sacrifice to pay the penalty for our sins. Because we have received such an incredible gift of love from God, we want to share that same kind of love with everyone we know!
Jesus is the reason we exist as a church, and knowing Him has led to wonderful changes in our lives. We want to invite you to consider who Jesus is, what He has to offer you, and the kind of life you can have through Him, too. Simply come as you are with an open heart and mind, and see what a difference Jesus can make!
We have four primary motives in all we do as a church:
The Bible tells us that God created mankind, loves us and wants to be part of our lives, but our sin separates us from Him. Jesus offers forgiveness for sin and an opportunity to begin a relationship with Him. We desire to see people experience this new life in Christ.
Walking Together on the Journey
God made us for relationship with Him and one another. We learn, grow closer to God, and experience life best together. We want everyone in True North to know they have a valuable gifts and experiences to share, and it is when we are all engaged in helping one another that we can fully enjoy the journey God has in store for us.
Grace is favor or kindness offered to someone regardless of whether they deserve it. Jesus offers us forgiveness and new life by grace; and we value extending that same kind of grace to all people so they will be free to discover Jesus at their own pace and give Him all the glory.
Serving in Love
As we work together to serve God, we want to serve with joyful hearts and love for God and one another.
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:28-31)
In short, True North is a church where you can “come as you are” and “leave different!” We invite you to come and let us get to know you just as you are. As we all pursue a life in Jesus together, we are confident that we will all be changed by Him!
