In 1921 a small group of people gathered in a humble living room in Sachse, Texas for prayer. That small band of people had the audacity to believe that what was happening among them would touch this region and possibly the nations.

In the last 100 years, that prayer gathering ignited a church that has grown from a small living room to thousands of people representing over 50 nations of the world who live out their transformed lives in every sphere of our society.

A new chapter in this unfinished story of Northplace Church begins now.

Something that is unfinished has more beauty to be unveiled. More mystery to be uncovered. More refining to be done. Something that is unfinished is a restoration work in progress.

We, as his people, are unfinished. We are an unfinished people with a call to fulfill an unfinished mission.

Initiatives

Launch the Prison Campus as soon as possible.

Begin construction on the children’s expansion in late November/Early December.

The Divine Call to Leave an Eternal Legacy

We begin our journey through the study of Abraham’s life, and I don’t want you to overlook the significance of this study. If you drive through a large US city and pass a church, a mosque, and a synagogue, the worshippers inside of every one of them see themselves as children of Abraham. Three of the world’s largest religions, the majority of the world’s population, look to Abraham as the father of their faith. Too often, when people study Abraham’s life, they see all these big things and the lasting results and residual of his life. That may be true, but there is something so much more significant that it always gets overlooked. Abraham was responding to the call of God. The call of God is what makes your life unique. It’s what sets you apart and marks you for something unique. Now don’t misunderstand what I’m saying here. In our circles, when someone here’s the phrase “the call of God,” we immediately assume the Call to pastoral ministry or preaching or missions. Pastoral ministry is not at all what I’m referring to when I speak of the call of God on Abraham’s life. Abraham's call, was a call to a relationship, a call to a profound personal encounter, a call to know God and be known by God. And Abraham’s response to that call is what made him “bigger” than life. God is extending that same call is to every one of us in this room or watching online: It’s The Divine Call to Leave an Eternal Legacy.
