Our Beliefs

Mission Statement

Proclaiming the Word to equip mission-minded disciples who embrace the spiritually lost and spiritually homeless.

Our identity as a church is centered on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who died and rose again to give us eternal life. The Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Our foundational biblical beliefs are aspects of this Gospel.

We Believe That:

God’s Gospel originates in, and is a demonstration of, the holy love of the eternal, triune God

God’s Gospel is authoritatively announced in the Scriptures

God’s Gospel alone addresses our deepest human need

God’s Gospel is revealed in history supremely through the Person of Jesus Christ

God’s Gospel is accomplished through the work of Christ

God’s Gospel is applied and empowered by the Holy Spirit

God’s Gospel is now embodied in the new community called the church

God’s Gospel compels us to Christ-like living and witness to the world

God Gospel will be brought to fulfilment by the Lord Himself at the end of this age

God’s Gospel calls for a response which determines the eternal destiny of every person

Our History

Northside Evangelical Church is a young vibrant church in the Queensland Baptist (QB) family. Prior to being part of QB we were an independent evangelical group that was planted in 2007 with just four families including our ministry family. Our inclusion into QB formally took place 21st March 2013, as a phase 2 church plant; by the 26th July 2013 we were a fully constituted church. NEC is diverse family of Christians who believe it is important for us to focus on the local community and to help the local community see … through us … how life changing a relationship with Jesus can be.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and that God has sent His Son Jesus to do what was necessary to bring us into a personal relationship with Jesus. Our constant focus is on the empty seats in our church and asking that God will work to fill those seats. And as they fill up we just keep putting more out!
