Every church needs to have an understanding of and be able to state who they are in the eyes of God. Not only as a church, but also individually, we embrace with much passion what God is doing in our lives. There is no place on earth we had rather be than here with our Northview family. We are people centered on Biblical truth, personal growth, genuine relationships, practical teaching, real life, friends and family, who are committed to know our purpose and seek to achieve it in all we do.

How We Began
When we know how we began and know who we are, it makes it easier to know where God is taking us next. Learn from history.
The Lord has blessed Northview from its very humble beginnings. As a mission of Lakeland Baptist Church, Lewisville and under the leadership of Pastor Jim Angel, Northview began in 1964 with rented property and a temporary building. Since that time, the Lord has used Northview to reach around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church began with 18 charter members. In those early days, the church building consisted of four rooms: a room for the nursery, a room for children, the chapel, and a bathroom. That same building (now renovated) is still in use today. It serves as the Chapel and more specifically, for adult Bible study space.
In the mid 1970’s, more education space and a worship center were built. It was during those years, under the leadership of Pastor Sam Newell, that Northview really began to be identified as a spiritual influence in the northern part of Lewisville. Then in the winter of 1981, Pastor Kenneth Wells was called as pastor and has been with Northview ever since. Pastor Wells’ passion was for Northview to be a lighthouse of faith and hope for Lewisville and beyond.
As the church continued to grow, the leadership looked at various ways to meet the challenges of growth. In the late 1990’s, the entire complex was renovated, preparing for what was soon to come, a new worship center. In addition to the complete remodel, properties (residential houses) were purchased around the present site for the future projected expansion.
April 2007 was a historical time, when the people of Northview walked into their brand new 500 seat worship center, called The Sanctuary. At that time, Northview was recording attendance close to 500 per Sunday.
The future of Northview looks brighter each day. With the addition of new staff members, new Bible study classes, worship time options, and additional space, Northview is positioned to lead and serve in the new century. God has had His hand on this church for many years and we have yet to see all that He has in store for us. We feel blessed to have all the wonderful yesterdays, a challenging today, and a bright tomorrow.
