Because we believe that God's love in Jesus Christ has broken down the walls that divide us, we seek to embody that love in our congregation and welcome people of all races, sexual orientations and economic circumstances.

A vibrant congregation of more than 600 members—with many more calling the church their home—Northaven is known for inspiring worship and music, interest in the arts, outreach to the community and sensitivity to inclusiveness. All are welcome.
