Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

Worship - Grow - Serve

Our aim is for every individual who calls NSBC home to experience the fullness of living in God’s will through the fundamental actions of worship, growth, and service. A wide variety of ministry outlets serves to provide opportunities to live these out through every age and stage of life.

Through Worship, we will praise God’s greatness!

One of the first things you need to know about NSBC is that we have two distinct styles of worship music in our services: Contemporary Worship led by a full band and Blended Worship where the band also includes piano and organ and is often joined by our adult choir. If you’re not sure which style you prefer, it’s a good idea to visit both of these services to determine which is the best fit for you and your family. Our Senior Pastor, Van Houser delivers the same message during each service.

Blended Worship
Blended worship is our way of describing worship that is neither fully traditional nor fully contemporary. Our worship pastor leads the congregation in a blend of majestic choral arrangements, contemporary worship songs, as well as a few familiar hymns. Instrumentation for this service includes a very talented band and orchestra, along with the more traditional piano and organ. Vocals are supported by our praise singers, as well as the Higher Praise Choir. We often begin the service with some fun banter with Pastor Van that you won’t want to miss!

This service meets at 11:00am and serves those in our congregation who attend Bible Study at 9:30am.

Contemporary Worship
Our Contemporary worship service is designed to draw the congregation into the presence of God through powerful presentation of contemporary worship songs. Our worship leader challenges us to reflect on the power and wonder of the gospel story and to celebrate and honor the Author! Instrumentation for this service includes our very talented band supported by a variety of vocalists.

This service meets at 9:30am and serves those in our congregation who attend Bible Study at 11:00am.

Through Education, we will prepare God’s people!

True spiritual growth is our highest priority at North Side. While worship is key (and often serves as a catalyst), spiritual growth is best achieved in the context of smaller, interactive groups of people gathered in fellowship to study scripture. To prepare God’s people for growth through education, we offer Sunday Morning Bible Study Classes, Small Groups (usually meeting on alternating Sunday or Wednesday evenings), and Adult Bible Fellowships (specialized short-term studies usually based on a specific topic or book). We welcome you to explore what we have to offer and see where would be a good fit for you!

Through Evangelism and Missions, we will proclaim God’s message!
Through Ministry and Fellowship, we will prove God’s love!

Service has a broad scope and includes everything from large teams participating in our foreign missions projects in Brazil and Vancouver, British Columbia; to individuals displaying integrity and taking advantage of “teachable moments” as Little League coaches or taking time off work on a Tuesday afternoon to serve chicken spaghetti at Center of Hope to those who have fallen on hard times. We also serve each other on a regular basis by sacrificing our time (and energy!) to work with toddlers in the nursery on a Sunday morning; serve dinner to other volunteers helping with our monthly Revive ministry to special-needs children and their parents; or even doing something as simple as changing light bulbs for one of our seniors through the Heaven’s Handy Men. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to do something for someone here!
