Tour Northridge in
60 seconds

Nobody is perfect. We all have struggles, hang-ups, and doubts. Here at Northridge, we believe God made a way for us to really know Him. So we long to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We take God very seriously and we take the Bible very seriously, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. No matter your past, we want to help you take your next step on your spiritual journey. Whether you are exploring faith or have been following Jesus for decades, we'd love to have you join us this Sunday!

What does sunday morning look like?

The only thing we'll ask of you is simple: relax. You don't have to dress up. Friendly people will smile and say hello. Hot coffee will be ready for you in the cafe when you arrive. There will be clean, fun, and safe age-appropriate settings for your kids (babies - 5th grade). The service will include some music, a few people will pray, and a talk explaining how to apply a part of the Bible. After about 70 minutes, it's over.
