Our Story (Our History)

It was through a pioneer spirit and through the leading of God upon the lives of faithful men and women that Northwood Church of God is here today. God has used persons whom have opened themselves to His leading. This was true with our congregation.

Through her beginnings as a small band of believers gathering together on Hurd Street, to her eventual move in location to Vinal Street, God’s hand was upon this congregation. Through the dedication and sacrifices of His people, and the capable leadership which was provided, God’s Kingdom was enlarged as lives were changed. The community was touched and ministered to through the outreach extended to them.

As the congregation grew, a new building was envisioned and became a reality. The congregation moved to East Broadway to continue the work God had given this Church. For thirty-eight years, the congregation faithfully ministered in that location.

In 1968, the congregation made the move to our current location in Northwood where we continue to strive to be faithful to the call of God for this Church. Through these past years, God has used His leaders to guide and direct this congregation to this day in time.

Today, we look back with deep appreciation and thanksgiving. But, in addition we look forward with great anticipation for a future filled with the blessing of our Lord as we serve Him faithfully.

We praise Him for what He has chosen to do through this congregation, and for what He has yet in store for Northwood Church of God as we seek His face and strive to walk with Him. Great and mighty things lie ahead for us as we obediently follow in His steps!
