Statement of Vision and Values
Welcome To Northampton!
God calls us to walk together as a joyful community centered upon Jesus. We will follow His call to become disciples and to make disciples of those who do not know the Lord, in our families and throughout the world. The Holy Spirit equips us for this great mission, transforming us into the likeness of Christ, as we faithfully pursue the following six biblical values.
Authentic Worship: (John 4:23) Heart-felt worship that is Christ-centered and Spirit-guided in which people can be genuine with God and each other.
Life-changing Study of the Word: (James 1:25) Providing a variety of teaching/learning environments in which the Holy Spirit helps people hear, understand, believe and obey the word of God.
Ceaseless Prayer: (1 Thes 5:17) Becoming a more prayerful people by developing and living in a continuous conversation with God.
Active Outreach: (Matt 10:42) Actively planting seeds that may bring non-believers to know Christ, by speaking honestly about what Jesus has done and is doing in our lives and allowing others to see His love for them through our actions.
Faith-Deepening Fellowship: (Act 2:42) Helping people form loving, Christ-centered friendships that strengthen the family of believers.
Faithful Stewardship: (2 Cor 9:6-9) Generously giving of our time, abilities, spiritual gifts, and material possessions to Christ’s work, in grateful response to God’s unconditional love for us.
We pursue these six biblical values with people of all ages, involving them in all aspects of the congregation’s life, and helping families create an environment of discipleship at home.
We are members of the Presbyterian Church (USA)
