Welcome to
North Main Street
Church of God

 We believe everyone can find their place at North Main. We understand that exploring Jesus or visiting a new church for the first time can be intimidating and uncomfortable experience.

Our Vision and Mission

 

The Purpose of Your life:

God created you to have a relationship with Him. He loves you, and wants you to experience peace and life-change through His Son Jesus Christ.

The Bible says . . .
“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

Why don’t most people have this life-changing relationship that God planned for us to have with Him?

North Main's Philosophy of Ministry

 

is centered on the process of discipleship as referenced in Matthew 28:19-20 where Jesus commands his followers to...

19 … go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

 

There are three distinct elements within this passage which form the basis of North Main’s discipleship process:

 

  1.        Baptize (Know) – The process of baptism is the first step in the discipleship process because it is an indicator of a person’s initial belief and commitment to Christ as Lord and Savior.  It is also the public profession of faith which brings a person into fellowship with the community of faith.  The focal point for fleshing out this first step is the worship experience on Sunday mornings at North Main.  Because our culture understands that the Christian church meets on Sundays for worship, this venue is our corporate opportunity for getting people connected to Christ and the church (this presupposes that each individual follower is doing his or her part in witnessing for Christ in the community).

 

  1.        Teach (Grow) – The process of teaching people to obey everything Jesus commanded is the ongoing process of spiritual, mental, and emotional development required of every follower of Christ.  This second step in the discipleship process is not an end in-and-of itself, but rather a continual process of spiritual formation through small groups.  Realizing that every believer is at different stages in their growth, the small group ministries at North Main are the catalyst for continual holistic development by providing authentic community, accountability, Biblical study, and support.

 

  1.        Go and Make Disciples(Go) – The final, but cyclical, process of discipleship is the element of ongoing ministry and service, which drives followers of Christ to step into the fullness of their God-given abilities and giftedness for the kingdom of God and His righteousness.  Completely committed followers of Christ find it a privilege to get involved in ministry that connects the unchurched to Christ.  They strive to plug in where they are gifted, and take seriously the mandate to Go and make disciples of all people.
