Pointing the Bay Area to our true north in the gospel
Why True North?
Did you know that a compass points to the magnetic north pole instead of true north?
There is a declination or difference, which if not corrected, can take a traveler completely off course. This means when using a compass to navigate any journey, one has to calculate the difference to accurately arrive at the intended destination.
In the same way we believe that the compasses of our hearts are pointing to the wrong things (or in the wrong directions). In order for us to be correctly oriented, we need the gospel of Jesus Christ to point us to the true north of his love and grace.
Create a place where all people can be a part of a community
Whether you have been a Christian your entire life or are a recent seeker, we want people to enjoy the community of people who are authentic, encouraging, and have a heart to connect with others. We strive to be a church that looks beyond labels and embrace everyone as people created in God’s image.
Empower all people to be ministers of the Gospel
We believe that God has created every person with gifts and talents to be used for the encouragement of others. We believe in the priesthood of all believers and desire all people to explore and use their talents for the uplifting of others.
Embody the heart of Christ by being missional in our worship, program, and lives
True North Church exists to engage the culture by communicating the Gospel of Jesus in a way that is easily heard and understood. We want people who may have never stepped in a church to feel comfortable in our service, so we remove the barriers that might get in the way. If you are unsure of what to expect, don't worry; we explain everything we do and why we do it.
Plant churches to reach the redemptive potential of the Bay Area
Our goal is not to build the next great church; instead our goal is to participate in the work of God in raising His church. We have a deep longing for the people of the Bay Area to know Jesus intimately and we desire to achieve this by being a church which plants churches.
