NorthPointe Church, First Baptist of Joshua, began serving the local community over 120 years ago from the town center of Joshua, Texas.
In 2010, the historic church has taken a bold step in a new direction, literally moving from its central location in Joshua to the fast-moving growth area north of town, in south Burleson, Texas. The original location at 301 S. Main in Joshua was sold to the young, fast-growing food ministry of Open Door Church and Ministries who will occupy the building in November 2010.
First Baptist sold the property as an act of faith, knowing their new worship center would not be complete until Summer/Fall of 2011. In a rare collaboration among organizations known more for bureaucracy than cooperation, the Baptists made an agreement with the Joshua Independent School District to use their North Joshua Elementary school at 100 Ranchway Dr., in Burleson as part of a fee-based agreement.
By rebranding itself as NorthPointe Church, First Baptist of Joshua, the church signals a new era of outreach with special focus on youth, children and family ministries. You can expect people to dress as they wish, with some people a little dressy and most folks in more casual attire. It's a come as you are worship environment. Services are one hour long. The church is known for its fantastic live music.
The public is welcome to worship as honored guests of the church Sunday mornings, 9am Traditional Service and 10:30am Contemporary Service. Outstanding children's programs are available for both services. The "Pursuit" Youth Groups meet at 9am in the school gymnasium and on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm.
