Who We Are

North Park is a church of people with diverse backgrounds united in their commitment to live out the Christian life in their community. North Park attempts to be church the way it was designed to be and should be. Our focus is on both proclaiming and living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in community with each other. We learn and apply the Bible, God's Word, but then work to live lives transformed by God's Holy Spirit.

Besides Sunday worship and Bible Study, during the week we gather for prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and ministry. We have active children's, youth, and men's and women's ministries. A Moms-in-Touch Prayer group meets weekly during the school year. Our women meet for Bible study and fellowship on Thursday mornings during the school year.

North Park actively supports local, national, and international missions and ministries. About 20% of its budget is directed to these causes.

People of all backgrounds have made North Park their home and have helped made it the dynamic fellowship that it is.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday is a mix of contemporary and traditional music, focused on expressing our love and commitment to God. Our pastor preaches from the Bible, not the headlines, and his goal is to build up believers while encouraging greater faithfulness to Christ. Worship is an hour and fifteen minutes. We precede worship with Life Bible Study with groups for preschool through adults for one hour from 9:00-10:00 a.m.

What is the community like?
We have people from Anglo, African-American, West Indian, Hispanic, and Asian backgrounds, from new-borns to those past retirement age. There is also a diverse faith background. Many of our members did not become Christians until their adult years.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Great. Many of our members were not Christians or were not committed to Christianity when they first started attending. You'll be welcome and so will be your questions.
