Our Goals

If you do not have a church home, it is our desire that you join us at Town North.

We believe the local church should be what the Bible describes in Ephesians 4:11b-13. That passage tells us that God gave “. . .pastors and teachers to prepare God’s people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up . . .” We believe the church is not a building but a people of God.  According to His plan, God has given each member of His church at least one spiritual gift to be used in serving Him and helping others become Christians and grow in Christ.  It is our goal as a local church to be personally involved with one another so that we can all reach our God-given potential.

As Presbyterians, we are convinced Scripture teaches that the implementation of God’s plan for the local church should be overseen by elders.  These men are gifted by God for leadership, chosen by the other members, and ordained by God.  One of those elders is the pastor. He does not control the church but gives his full-time to preaching and teaching God’s Word. He and the elders care for the members and are responsible for their growth in Christ.  As a result, the members are equipped for service to one another and the world.

We consider four things essential to a healthy church:

  • Worshipping the God who saved us,
  • sharing the good news with those who don’t know Jesus Christ,
  • discipling believers as they grow in their faith, and
  • caring for the spiritual well-being of its members.

We strive for a balance between worship, instruction, and fellowship. Our people are warm and friendly.  We preach and teach God’s Word in a practical and challenging way.  Above all, our worship is a reverent, uplifting time of praise to God.  This combination of emphasis gives church life at Town North a refreshing and invigorating atmosphere.

Because we have been blessed by God, we desire to grow and to share what we have with others.  We want to see men, women, boys and girls come to know Christ.  We want others of like faith to join us in worship, growth, and ministry.
