Represent | Northgate

To Represent means more than merely spreading a message; it requires embodying the essence of Jesus in our lives. We understand that we can only effectively Re-present Jesus to others when we authentically and genuinely Represent who he is, who he favors, and how he loves. This demands honesty, transparency, and grace in our actions, fostering an environment that encourages personal growth toward a likeness to Jesus. Just as those who were nothing like Jesus found acceptance in his presence, we aim to emulate that unconditional love, making it a reality in our community.

We acknowledge that to Represent well we must first be present...

Being a good representative involves being filled with the essence of Jesus and continually growing in faith and love. Our commitment is to be vessels overflowing with the qualities of Jesus, making a tangible impact on those closest to us and reaching out to those farthest from him. We acknowledge that to Represent well, we must first be present to be actively engaged in a journey that mirrors Jesus's transformative relationship with those around him.

To achieve this representation, we emphasize the importance of spending dedicated time in the presence of Jesus. We recognize that personal growth, spiritual development, and an authentic representation of Jesus arise from a regular and intentional communion with him. By immersing ourselves in his teachings, listening to his voice, and embracing the principles of hope, joy, peace, love, gentleness, and kindness, we cultivate a rich inner life that naturally spills over into our interactions with others.

We envision a community where Representing Jesus isn't a distant goal but a lived reality. Our commitment is to create an environment where individuals are encouraged and equipped to be Present with Jesus regularly. Through communal worship, small groups, and intentional study of the scriptures, we aspire to foster an atmosphere where everyone can learn to hear and recognize the voice of Jesus.

We aspire to be a community that embraces diversity and inclusivity...

Representing Jesus involves bridging gaps, breaking down barriers, and extending the love and acceptance that characterized Jesus' interactions. We aspire to be a community that embraces diversity and inclusivity, mirroring the open-hearted nature of Jesus. We want to be known for what we stand for and, more importantly, for who we represent—Jesus, the embodiment of love, grace, truth, and compassion.

In the journey of Representing, we acknowledge that personal transformation is the foundation for impacting our community and the world. We commit to equipping each member to be a beacon of hope, a source of joy, and a vessel of peace and love in their spheres of influence. As we grow individually, we collectively become a powerful force for positive change.
