About us:

 

VISION:

North Shore Fellowship exists to Lift up Jesus, and to “reconcile” people into A relationship with God through him. 

(“Ministry of Reconciliation” – 2nd Corinthians 5:18)

 

Mission:

Our mission is to worship Jesus, preach His Word and reach out to others by showing His love to a world that desperately needs it through worship, teaching, fellowship, outreach and prayer.

 
WORSHIP • TEACHING • FELLOWSHIP • OUTREACH • PRAYER
 
We believe that a lifestyle of worship, teaching, fellowship, outreach and prayer in a church community allows us to live out our Christian life to its fullest potential. Our hope is to foster an environment of discipleship that is both life-changing and contagious.
 
Our prayer is that North Shore Fellowship is not just another church, but a movement. Ultimately reaching pockets of unreached people in Monmouth County and beyond. As we endeavor to fulfill the Great Commission, we also hope to bring many people into genuine reconciliation with God through a relationship with Jesus the Messiah.
 

We’re Jesus-Centered

“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:9-10

Our focus is to know Jesus as our:
