What kind of church is Northside Drive Baptist Church?
We are a Baptist church--but not that kind of Baptist--meaning we value questions more than answers and are fully inclusive of all persons regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. We celebrate same sex marriages, follow the traditional Lectionary (Scripture readings that flow through the Church calendar on a three year cycle), and have a community committed to social justice. So, while the service might look traditional at 11:00 AM on Sundays, we are always seeking to be responsive to the Holy Spirit in our values, expression of faith, and community.
