When you take Core Class 301 & Core Class 401 at NorthPointe, you’ll discovery ways to live your life “on mission” accomplishing the 5 purposes of the church.

PEACE is the foundation of missions here at NorthPointe. It’s ordinary people, empowered by God, doing what Jesus did, wherever they are.


 What is PEACE?

PEACE is the framework for local and global missions here at NorthPointe. It’s ordinary people, empowered by God, making a difference together, wherever they are.

PEACE is all about addressing five global giants – spiritual emptiness, self-serving leadership, poverty, disease, and illiteracy – through the power of ordinary people in the local church.

 


PEACE Center

The PEACE Center is a place where NorthPointe’s strategy starts for missions, and it’s your next step for exploring how God is calling you to serve. Through PEACE Center, we work with and support local people and ministries to bring lasting change in their communities.

The PEACE Center is dedicated to accomplishing two essential things:

  • Helping to meet practical, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual needs wholistically (meaning the whole person).
  • Building relationships with compassion, dignity, love, and hope.

 


What is a PEACE Servant?

PEACE Servants live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission every day, wherever they are.

The Great Commandment

Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God (worship) with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it, “Love your neighbor (serving) as yourself.” 

The Great Commission

Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples (evangelism) of all nations, baptizing them (fellowship) in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them (discipleship) to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

PEACE Servants are working each step of the PEACE Plan:

  1. Foundation “Every member on mission. Personal. Local. Global.”
  2. Mobilization “Intentional steps in following Jesus. Crawl. Walk. Run.”
  3. Transformation “Living out the 5 points. Person of PEACE. Sustainable & reproducible. Wholistic.”
  4. Expansion “Overcome barriers to mission and growth. Helping others through each step.”

Local PEACE

Providing for today, equipping for tomorrow

We believe it’s important to invest in your church and surrounding community by helping meet practical, spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational needs. When you attend Core Class 301 & Core Class 401 you learn that God has created each one of us with unique gifts & talents that he intends for us to use in serving others. Plus, we show you practical ways to live your life on mission and share your story with the world around you.

At NorthPointe, the PEACE Plan is our model for responding to the brokenness in our families, our neighborhoods, our city, and our world. (Providing for Today, Equipping for Tomorrow) The PEACE Plan’s goal is for the church to the be church, fulfilling the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
