At Northgate, we believe God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people, and parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on Biblical truth. As such, throughout the year, our special events and services are, with a few exceptions, family-inclusive. We encourage our families to be involved with everything the church has to offer.
Whether it’s enjoying the fun times of the spring Eggstravaganza, joining a road trip to pick apples or coming in on a Saturday to pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, at Northgate Baptist, it’s always a family affair!

At Northgate, our Senior Adults are an immensely treasured group of people. Grass has little time to grow under the feet of these loyal servants, as they’re just as likely to be seen running face-painting tables at the Fall Festival or working with children during VBS as they are taking part in traditional senior ministries like JOY Club or singing in the choir.
We offer several different classes for seniors, including a few co-ed classes, and they’re among the most active groups in the church!
