About North Point Church
A message from Pastor Jeff Zimmerman on his calling to North Point Church.
North Point Church in Kenosha, WI
In 2015, when the Lord began calling me to Kenosha to Pastor this church, He laid the name North Point in my heart for a name for this church. I wrote it down, prayed about it, thought about it, and then filed it away until we arrived. I began looking into what this name meant after we arrived and this was what I found.
- North is the direction especially in Western culture that is treated as the fundamental direction.
- North is used to define all other directions.
- The visual top edges of maps usually correspond to the northern edge of the area represented, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
- If a map has a single arrow it will usually indicate true north.
- Globes of the earth have the North Pole at the top.
- Of all the directions on a compass North is decorated more prominently than any other compass point.
- On a compass North corresponds to 0.
- North corresponds to up.
On a clear starry night, it doesn’t matter if you’re lost on land or sea if you can locate the Northern star and determine North, you can make it home.
I have had so many people come to our altars all across our movement and it doesn’t matter if they are a first time guest, returning guest, wayward Christian coming home or faithful church member. They all have this in common “Pastor, pray for me, pray for us we need direction.” Direction in our home, direction in my job, direction in our marriage, direction in our relationship, direction in college, direction with my kids.
There is a cry going out in this generation for direction and with God’s help North Point will fulfill that need. North Point will be a beacon of Light and Hope in the darkness of Kenosha.North Point will be that reference point to find home, Jesus Christ the “Author and Finisher of your faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2
When I saw that North corresponds to 0, I began to think about how we are all one in Christ and all start at the same place with Christ no matter who we are. These Scriptures began to come to mind.
At North Point you can find your “starting place”; it’s a fresh start; it’s a chance to start over; it’s a chance to begin your journey with Christ; it’s your starting point.
Old Made New – Old things are passed away behold ALL things are made new.
There is no seniority in the Kingdom of God. We all start at the same place, faith.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
North Point is a place that you can find direction for your life!
God’s word will guide your life. It will not only show you where you are but it will show you where you are going.
There is a call that is going out today.
If you have reached a place in your life where you may need direction for your life, or maybe you’re unsure of what God wants you to do and where He wants you be in His Kingdom, or maybe you may feel that where you are in Christ is not being satisfied and you want to go deeper in Christ, or maybe you may just need a fresh start. North Point is the place for you.
