Thanks for checking out the NPC website… I want to personally welcome you to North Park Church online. You might have noticed our theme is “intentionally different”. At NPC we are not trying to be like the church down the street. We hope to accomplish our God given purpose and mission- and that means doing church a little differently than you might expect. Whether it’s the music, the message or the multimedia- we want it to be real. And we want to be real. No faking it here. So come on in… relax and be yourself. See and experience the intentional difference of NPC.
