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.
 
 

We’re Jesus-Centered

 

Our focus is to know Jesus as our:
