What we believe...

In a day and age where clarity is needed in many instances, North Park Baptist Church wants to be a church that is seeking to bring clarity to who we are, what we believe, as well as how we are living and serving our community, the River Valley, our state, our country, and the world according to what God's has ordained through His Word. This means laying out a clear standard by which we proclaim with our mouths, lives, gatherings, and the sending of our people for the glory of God. In the following you will find a general understanding of what we believe and what we stand upon.


Love God

We believe that God is the Creator of everything and that he exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 16:7-15; Hebrews 1:2-3

We believe that God created us to worship him and give him glory.
Isaiah 43:7, 21; Psalm 96:9; Matthew 4:10

We believe that sin has kept us from knowing God and worshipping him but that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, was physically resurrected, and now offers a restored relationship with God to all who believe in him.
John 3:16; Acts 2:22-39; Romans 3:21-24

We believe that salvation is a free gift given at God’s initiative and must be received personally by faith and repentance.
John 5:24; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9

We believe the Bible to be God’s Word, a true and fully accurate account of God’s love for us. Its purpose is to teach us how to have a relationship with him, worship him, and bring him glory.
Psalm 19:7-10; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21

Love Each Other


We believe that Jesus established his body on Earth in the church and that the church is a community that exists for the purpose of declaring the gospel and glory of Jesus throughout the world.
1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Colossians 1:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9

We believe the church is a family and that every believer should be identified with a local body of believers for the purpose of mutual encouragement, spiritual growth, and accountability.
Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 3:12-25; Hebrews 10:24-25


Reach the World


We believe that God cares about every need of every person and that the church, as Christ’s body, is to show his love and care for every person. Every member of the church is called to be a minister of the gospel through acts of loving service and a willingness to share the truth of the gospel with everyone at every opportunity.
John 13:34-35; 1 Peter 3:15; 1 Peter 4:8

We believe that the scope of God’s love is worldwide, and this church is committed to taking the gospel to the farthest and most unreached places of the world.
Isaiah 49:6; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 10:13-15; 1 Timothy 2:3-4
