“After conducting internal assessments involving the church membership, the church staff, and the lay leadership, we discovered that there are seven major core values that summarize all of our feedback. The family of NorthRidge Church has the following guiding values that are foundational to understanding our commitment to who we are and who we want to be”:
Core Value # 1 A Commitment to Biblical Preaching and Teaching
We understanding that the authority for our ministry and life comes from the inerrant, infallible Word of God, we submit ourselves to do what it says, thus yielding our lives to become what Christ desires for us to be.
Core Value # 2 A Commitment to Prayer
We believe that God desires His people to pray and we also believe that He hears and answers prayer. The ministries of this church will be characterized by a reliance on God through prayer.
Core Value # 3 A Commitment to Worship
We acknowledging that our very lives are instruments for His glory and purpose…the focal point of our very lives in all that we do will be to honor Him.
Core Value # 4 A Commitment to Evangelism
We believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation thus leading us to pursue vigorous means of proclaiming the gospel to our community, city and world.
Core Value # 5 A Commitment to Love
We affirm what Jesus said; “This is how all men will know that you are my disciples: that you love one another.” We commit to living our lives in active love towards one another.
Core Value # 6 A Commitment to Fellowship
We value the gathering together as an assembly of believers sharing with one another in the commonality of belief in Jesus Christ.
Core Value # 7 A Commitment to Unity
We believe that we have been united in Christ thus becoming the church; that is the body or the family of God. Therefore we are compelled to unite together for the cause of the Great Commission as our highest purpose as a body.
