Thank you for considering a visit to North Lakes Christian Church. We want you to feel comfortable, so let us tell you what you can expect when you honor us with a visit.
We are committed to the idea of “Restoration Christianity.” It is our desire to “restore” the New Testament church in our time. We attempt to determine from the Bible what the church was like in the beginning and to be like that original church as much as possible. We believe this is a worthy goal.
We strive to be a stand-alone, Bible-centered church. We know our conclusions aren’t flawless, and that our practices are sometimes colored by habit, preference, tradition or convenience. Even so, we hold the Bible as our only guide in religious matters.
The worship will be led by a team of dedicated men and women. The music will consist of contemporary congregational songs and special music performed by our worship team.
Our Pastor will not be wearing any ecclesiastical vestments which set him apart. The reason for this is our belief that all are equal in the church of God. He prefers to be called by his first name. The message will last 20 to 30 minutes and may be punctuated by video, music or drama.
If you visit, nothing will be required of you. You are welcome to participate, but don’t feel obligated to. Just observe, if that is your choice. We will ask you to fill out an attendance card, if you are comfortable supplying the information. This simply provides information so we can give you a free gift and write to thank you for visiting.
You won’t have to look very deep to find our failures. But, bottom-line, you will find people who love Jesus and love living according to the Bible. We would love for you to join us in our pursuit of Him and His Word this weekend. We meet and worship together on Sunday morning at 10:00. Would you please join us?
Pastor Rhodes and his wife Barbara live in White Bear Lake. They have been married for over forty years and have four grown children, four grand daughters and two grandsons.
