Who We Are
No matter who you are.
No matter where you've been.
You are welcome here.
When you ask people what they love about North Church, the common response is, "it's real." We love to hear that! It’s a place where messy lives intersect with a God who loves them unconditionally—families reconnect, marriages heal, and relationships mend. We call this faith & life, together.
Whether you’re just getting to know North Church, or you’ve been here a while and are now taking steps to get more involved, you’re a part of something very special here in Delaware County.
North Church exists...
To bring people into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, to draw them into a Christ-centered community, and to help them grow in their faith. That’s what drives every decision we make and guides every conversation we have.
This is what we're all about. It's who we are.
"To meet people wherever they are on their spiritual journey, and lead them toward a growing relationship with Jesus Christ."
We strive to be a meeting, leading, and growing church. Here's what that means to us:
To be a MEETING Church means we embrace Jesus’ Great Commission in Matthew 28 as a seven day a week challenge not to wait, but to “Go!” It’s our missional charge that doesn’t end in a sanctuary—it comes alive in neighborhoods, at work, on sidelines, and in bleachers. And from that epicenter to wherever God leads worldwide.
To be a LEADING Church means we get what’s at stake when messy lives embrace the gifts God has given each of us to build His Kingdom. When we intentionally leverage the truth God has pressed into our heart and the gifts He’s placed in our hands, we point everyone we meet toward a life in Jesus Christ.
To be a GROWING Church means a life in Christ is a never-ending, soul- stretching, faith-leaping, grace-giving relationship driven not by what God wants from us but what God wants FOR us. As our only source
for life, Jesus reminds us in John 15 of this promise—Where there’s life, there’s growth—in our relationship with God, with others, and in the church.
