Grounded in tradition
Thriving with innovation
Serving with joy
Northminster is a small, progressive congregation faithfully seeking to offer God’s love to others. We are young and old, black and white, male and female, gay and straight – celebrating both our uniqueness as beloved children of God and our unity in Christ. We come from a variety of traditions, and worship in a variety of ways. Our diversity energizes our work and witness as we seek to be the body of Christ in the world today.
We are a community of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and find our faith best expressed through the Reformed tradition.
Here are some basics for us:
- God is the supreme authority throughout the universe.
- Our knowledge of God and God’s purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ.
- Our salvation (justification) through Jesus is God’s generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments.
- It is everyone’s job – ministers and lay people alike – to share this Good News with the whole world.
