“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

(Ephesians 3:20-21)

Our Vision

Our Future • Our Challenge

When we say “be the church,” we mean that being a Christian is not about attending Christian gatherings and meetings. It’s a simple, three-word encouragement that reminds us that we have a mission to live our lives for God’s glory.


How You Can Help

Practical & Spiritual Commitments

Building a ministry center will be the biggest faith adventure we’ve made as a church. It’s bigger than us. Having a “home” will be a huge blessing for us and our community. We ask you to join us in giving generously to this project.

The Impact of Northstar

From Our Members & Guests

After moving back to the Blacksburg area, we listened closely to God’s calling for us to join Northstar. We found immediate fellowship connections with other families with young children, especially in our small group and volunteering. Through discipleship opportunities and the Sunday messages that are so grounded in the Word, we are challenged to grow in our relationship with Christ. Our kids always look forward to Children’s Ministry on Sunday mornings, and we love that they learn about Jesus every week. Northstar is an incredibly supportive body of believers that truly lives the idea of “Be the Church.”
Justin & Jessica Yalung, Members since 2014
Northstar helped me to grow spiritually by helping me to make religion my own. By that, meaning that instead of just going to church and doing the good “Christian” things I needed to do to fulfill some religious requirement, I went because I have a true personal relationship with God.
Kevin & Gina Harris, Northstar Alums
I just wanted to thank you and all the leadership at Northstar for the amazing job you do. I loved my time at Northstar and am so thankful for it, but I don’t think I truly realized how blessed I was till I’ve had to try and replace it. So in the words of Joe Dirt, “Keep on keepin’ on” because the Lord is doing great things at Northstar

I made Northstar my church because I was seeking a community that was focused on running towards Christ and truly impacting lives. It’s not a place that I could just show up and check off a box but was urged to really invest and thrive.

Every morning on my way to work I drive by the site where the church will one day sit and each morning I find my self remembering the rainbow and that God can do so much more than we can imagine because of the love he has for us.
John & Sharon Shockley, Members since 2010
I have grown so much since attending this church because being a part of Northstar is not all about attendance, it’s about being the church. Their mission “Be the Church” is about living a life directed towards Christ and giving Him all the glory on an everyday basis, not just Sunday mornings.

I came to Blacksburg looking for a church and a Bible study. What I found was a community of believers united not around a building or an event – but a mission. As the Northstar Family looks towards a less itinerant home, my prayer is that the mission remains the focus. So excited to see how the mission expands! Praying for unimaginable provision from the infinitely able God.

Viktor Orekhov, Northstar Alum

Northstar emphasizes the importance of a personal relationship with God found in the context of Biblical community. It really is a family that challenges all who attend to take personal responsibility for their faith, the growth of the church body, and the spread of the gospel. I personally have felt so cared for and loved by the unique community at Northstar while also being encouraged and challenged to constantly grow in my faith!
