What We Believe
If you’re curious about what we believe at Northwest, here are a few of the essentials.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. We believe that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was bodily resurrected, ascended into heaven, where He intercedes for His people and will personally and visibly return to the earth. We also believe that those who trust and follow the teachings of Jesus will experience a more full and satisfying life that is very different from the life of someone who doesn’t follow Jesus.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three co-equal Persons, whose work is distinct and harmonious.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by conduct, and are therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who admit their sin and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We believe the church is the body of Christ and Jesus is the Head. All regenerated persons are members of His body. We believe that God has laid upon the Church the primary task of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world.
We believe that Christians should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ, which will bring glory to God and well-being to his person.
