Church as Community

The church is a community of those whom God's Spirit calls to turn from sin, acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord, receive baptism upon confession of faith and follow Christ in life.

The faith community, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, interprets the Bible in the light of Jesus Christ to discern God's will for our obedience. Our worship services are at the core of our mission, where we gather to encounter God and become empowered to be God's light in the world.

Community at North Suburban

The people at North Suburban serve as extended family for one another. Most of us do not have relatives in the area, so we look after each other and help each other as needed. Through worship, prayer, and mutual discernment of God's will for our lives, we embark on a spiritual journey together.

Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.
Mark 3:35
