We come from a variety of traditions and worship in a variety of ways. We are a beautifully messy group of people seeking to be more like Jesus.
We believe in the presence, the promise, and the power of God’s amazing love which compels us to live joyfully and renews us to serve God’s world.
We welcome all people of all ages, races, ethnicities, genders, and sexualities. We celebrate both our uniqueness as beloved children of God and our unity in Christ.
Open and affirming
We celebrate all gender identies, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. Love is love in all of it's beautiful forms. Come as you are because you are queerly beloved.
We affirm the desire to question, doubt, explore, and discover, and we work together to help each other seek answers.
Heaven on earth
We accept the challenge and responsibility to become more like Jesus in our daily lives. We stand up against systems of oppression for the people in our Chattanooga community.
There are lots of ways to get involved in ministry at Northminster. First, come to worship! Our Sunday morning services are the heart of our community. It is our time to ground ourselves in the faithfulness of God, to meet the risen Christ, and to be renewed in the Holy Spirit.
Additionally, we take a stand to practice what we preach. We are proud to be partners with Chattanooga Pride. Our members take part in Black Lives Matter marches and protests for women's and immigrants’ rights. We volunteer our time to help defendants fight the bail bond system and provide necessities to our unhoused neighbors.
Within the congregation, there are also opportunities for ministry. Because we believe in the equality of all community members to contribute to and lead in the church, we rely on volunteers who help as Sunday School teachers, sing in the choir, serve as greeters, read as liturgists during the service, and assist as helpers with fellowship.See more Donate today
