To Know Christ Better & Make Him Better Known

 

Northridge Community Church is a place to begin to build relationships with people who care, a place to belong to a community of faith, and a place to become a person of purpose.

With our heart to God and hand to man, we are committed to making soul winning our primary purpose. We endeavour to share the message of God’s love in a practical manner that speaks to the needs of our community. With both passion and relevancy, the message is presented.

We seek to develop and nurture every believer. This is done not only through Sunday worship services but also in small group settings that inspire people on their spiritual journeys and provide fellowship opportunities.

We encourage people to discover and develop their spiritual gifts. We follow Christ’s lead, empowering all members to pursue God’s vision and provide support to those who need help.

We provide worship that glorifies God. We help others feel inspired and look to the future, anticipating a life that honours God.

 

Our Beliefs & Doctrines

We Believe:

  • The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice
  • There is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship
  • There are three persons in the Godhead – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory
  • In the person of Jesus Christ, the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man
  • Our first parents were created in a state of innocence, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God 
  • The Lord Jesus Christ has, by His suffering and death, made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever believes in Him may be saved
  • Repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation
  • We are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself
  • Continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ
  • It is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • In the immortality of the soul, in the resurrection of the body, in the general judgment at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked
