IMG_3169Meet Northway Church: 

Northway Church began in 1998 as a church plant of Vineville Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia to reach a community of largely unchurched neighborhoods located on the north side of the city. Since 1998, the church as grown from 2-300 individuals attending on Sunday to approximately 1000-1200 attending worship each week. The church sits on 28 acres of property strategically located between growing commercial and residential areas.

Northway’s vision is very simple: “For the Gospel, For the City.” We believe God has placed us in Middle Georgia to be a catalyst for spiritual change in our community. As our vision statement reads: “When the Gospel transforms a life, it also transforms a home, a workplace, and a city. Northway Church is committed to developing leaders who will take the Gospel to our city by serving, loving, and sacrificing with no limits. We are for the Gospel and we are for the City. Let’s go!”

Northway recently completed a $7 million expansion which includes a new student center, an expanded foyer, and a retail coffee shop (cathedralcoffee.org) open to the public Monday-Saturday. We’ve also recently expanded our Weekday Preschool to include an extended day option for families. In the past year, Northway has truly become a church whose ministry is operating seven days a week.
