Our (Short) Story
On Saturday April 16, 2016 (affectionately remembered as Super Saturday), a core group of families made the decision to launch a new church in Northfield.
The work began in the summer of 2016. A core group started meeting to pray and seek the Lord’s guidance for the road ahead. In early September of 2016, the core group launched a weekly Sunday evening service, while continuing to move towards an official and public launch.
On February 19, 2017, after prayer, discussion, and research, NCC began renting space in Community Resource Bank and holding Sunday morning services.
April 2, 2017 marked the official and public launch of NCC. A group of people who love Jesus and love people came together in order to know Christ and make Him known.
Today, Northfield Community Church is seeking the good of Northfield and the nations.
Northfield Community Church believes we are better and stronger when working together. We work together in our own congregation, but we also believe in partnering with other churches and organizations. Below is a list of our partners.
Our church is a plant of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. As our sending church, Bethlehem continues to support us in a myriad of way. In addition to Bethlehem, there are five churches that have entered into a special partnership with NCC. These five churches partner with NCC in prayer, on-going accountability, and financial support. NCC hopes to help these churches think about their own efforts to plant new churches.
In addition to our partnership with Bethlehem Baptist Church and The Five, we are affiliated with the following networks.
The North American Mission Board (NAMB) is an entity supported by the generous contributions of Southern Baptists with the goal of seeing the gospel change lives and communities. NCC is happy to partner with NAMB in order to plant a church in Northfield and more churches around the country.
