What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of North Pointe Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God & should be the supreme and final authority in our lives and faith. [2 Tim 3:16-17, 2 Pet 1:20-21]

one god

We believe in one God who exists and reveals Himself in three persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
[Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14]

jesus christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary,  Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
[Matthew 1:18-25, Romans 9:5, Hebrews 12:2]


We believe that all mankind was created in the image of God, but fell from relationship with God by voluntary disobedience. Only through accepting Jesus Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice of His shed blood for our sins, we can be forgiven and restored into fellowship with God.
[Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23; 5:1; 6:23, Eph. 1:7]


We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord and the following bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting joy to the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
[Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelations 20:4-6; 11-15]


We believe that the Church is comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior and that scripture instructs believers to identify and regularly assemble with other believers to devote themselves to worship, prayer, teaching of the Bible, fellowship, and works of service. The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
[Hebrews 10:24-25, Acts 2:42-47; 16:5]

The Holy Spirit

We believe that at the point of salvation the Holy Spirit fills each believer to be a source of strength, assurance, and wisdom. Every believer has available to them a distinct and subsequent experience as promised by the Father known as the Baptism with the Holy Spirit which is evidenced by speaking in a heavenly prayer language as the Spirit gives utterance.
[1 Cor. 2:9-14; 6:19-20, Matt. 3:11, Acts 2:4, 38-39]

The gifts of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has supernatural abilities to distribute to Christians for the instruction and empowering of every believer and that when operated in balance and order will bring God glory.
[1 Corinthians 12:1-12; 14:40, John 16:13-14]

Water baptism

We believe that water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, should be followed by all believers as a public profession of their faith in Christ.
[Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38; 8:36-38]

Lord's supper

[Luke 22:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29]
