North Way Christian Community Church in Pittsburgh, PA
  • Baptism


The act of water baptism is an important step in your spiritual journey. Baptism is an outward expression of the grace of God in the life of a believer, and is symbolic of salvation, not a part of it. Therefore, we believe that anyone professing a personal faith in Jesus should be baptized as an adult.

{section}More About Baptism{/section} Believer’s baptism has deep, significant meaning for our lives as followers of Christ. Being baptized after we have begun a relationship with Jesus Christ allows us to publicly express that we have indeed received God’s love, and in turn are committed to giving Him our entire lives. It’s also an opportunity to obey God and to mark ourselves as Christ’s followers as we follow his example of being baptized. Through the act of baptism, we become a part of God’s illustration, or story, of His love for humankind. As we are lowered into the water, those around us are reminded of Christ’s burial and the death of our old life. As we are raised out of the water, we are reminded of our new life through His resurrection. We would love to walk you through this step of faith, so our staff is always available to you to answer any questions.

Small Groups

{section}Small Groups{/section} At North Way, we believe strongly that one of the best ways to connect with one another, grow in your faith, and serve together in community is to join a small group. It’s in these smaller environments where life-change happens best. You can join a small group at any time throughout the year! Small groups meet on different days and in different locations all across the city, including homes, coffee shops, and at your campus. Check out all of our available groups on the North Way app or North Way’s Small Group Finder: Additionally, we host Small Group Connect events at each campus that allow you to engage face-to-face with small group leaders in order to foster a connection. Lots of people jump into a small group for the very first time during our Small Group Connects – making it one of the best times to do so. Finally, we have one more way to get involved in a small group! Rooted is a 10-week small group experience that provides the opportunity to connect with God, the church community, and your purpose in unexpected and life-changing ways.
