Northeast is a church focused on the application of God’s Word and developing disciples. Encouraging the memorization and increasing the knowledge of God’s Word through church events throughout the week, members are molded into disciples. Being focused on fellowship, missions, and family, members apply what they have learned and reach out into the community and beyond.
Memorizing God’s Word allows you to inscribe the words into your heart – this is the first task to becoming a disciple. With Bible Drill and consistently studying God’s Word, Northeast provides a variety of ways to help individuals place His Words in their hearts. In any situation, being able to access some of these profound messages from our Lord can provide hope and vigor to our everyday lives.
Delving deeper into the Holy Word can open your eyes into the mission God has for your personal life and what He has planned for His future. Through Bible studies and church services, a foundation of knowledge is created which allows the disciple to learn and mature in their personal growth with God.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matt. 5:16).” The disciples of Northeast are equipped with the knowledge of Christian character and have God’s Word inscribed on their heart, so they become a beacon for the Lord. Fellowships and missions provide the disciples a chance to make a difference and point to their Heavenly Father.
