About Northminster Presbyterian Church
Our Mission Statement
Northminster Presbyterian Church is a family of faith, nurturing our community through the mission, compassion, and love of Christ, welcoming all with open arms.
Most of our church members live nearby, although we do have some folks with a 30 minute commute. They have a variety of professional backgrounds and personal experiences, which is reflected in their diverse theological views, though we are united in wanting to serve our community and the area around us as a large part of our calling. We want people to know their worth, know that God loves them, and know that they have a place here and in God's kingdom.
