Our Story

Pastor Ray Brandon dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal: help people who were unfamiliar with the Bible and church, connect with God in a church without letting structures and programs get in the way. With the help of 35 adults and their families committed to seeing this vision become a reality— Northbridge Church began on October 5, 2005. That first Sunday, over 131 attended the first service at our location in Cooper. Since then Northbridge has helped individuals and families connect with God, met the daily needs of people in the community, supported causes like the Gospel Mission and Christian Neighbors, help connect orphans to families, rescued individuals from sex trafficking, baptized new believers, helped people mature in their faith and knowledge of the Word of God, coached five new church planters and planted a new church, CityGate Church in Portage, Michigan.
