Membership at Northside

Become a member.

Membership at our church is a commitment to a loving community that reaches, restores, and releases every person to expand God’s Kingdom. Local church membership is a commitment to community.

We have 3 main areas of community engagement which we ask each member to prayerfully consider and commit to. These 3 areas are Community Doctrine, Community Culture, and Community Commitment.

 

Community Doctrine

You can find our community doctrine at nsfc.ca/beliefs-culture

Community Culture

Our Culture includes the vision and mission of our community

Vision Statement: “To be a loving community that reaches, restores, and releases every person to expand God’s Kingdom”

Mission Statement: We are dedicated to cultivating a loving community who embrace the values of presence-focused, faith-filled, and servant-hearted living

Value- Presence-Focused

“We respond to God’s presence and we enjoy each other’s presence”

Our gatherings are presence-focused. We intentionally focus our times of worship on God’s presence and what He is doing at every moment. We are sensitive to His leading and we adjust our posture accordingly. We also make space in our gatherings to be present with each other. We are focused on the presence of God and the presence of each another. People are reached through presence. (Ps. 22:3) (Eph. 4:2-3) (Zech. 2:5)

Behaviours:

1. Responsive (Ex. 33:14,15)
2. Thanksgiving and Praise (Ps. 100:4)
3. Joyful (Ps. 16:11)
4. Stillness (Ps. 46:10)
5. Mourning (Jn. 11:35)

 

Value- Faith-Filled

“We believe that nothing is impossible for God and God’s Word is still living and active”

Our community is faith-filled. We believe that God continues to speak, heal, and restore lives today as He did in the early Church. Faith is the belief in what God can do, regardless of what we may see with our eyes. We make space in our gatherings for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to safely operate. People are restored by faith in Jesus. (Matt. 10:8) (1 Cor. 14:1-5) (Heb. 11)

Behaviours:

1. Salvation (Jn. 3:16)
2. Testimony (Rev. 19:10)
3. Hearing God (Is. 30:21)
4. Pray for Healing (Ex. 15:26)
5. Pray for Blessing (Num. 6:24-26)

Value- Servant-Hearted

“We believe that leadership begins with serving and all people are called to serve”

Our leaders are servant-hearted. We believe that the best leaders in the Kingdom are servants of God and others. It is our conviction that every person in our community has ability and capacity to serve. Serving is not above or beneath anyone and is evident in any loving community. People are equipped and released through serving. (Jn. 13:14,15) (Jn. 13:34) (Eph. 4:11-13)

Behaviours:

1. Be Humble (Phil. 2:13)
2. Stay Connected (Eph. 4:16)
3. Develop Leaders (Eph. 4:1-13)
4. Egalitarian (Gen. 1:26-28, Joel 2, Acts 2, Acts 18:2, Gal. 3:28,)
