About North End
Where Jesus is Our True North!
North End we are Celebrating more than 60 Years of Ministry and Service.
North End was started by Reverend Melvin L. Eidson and his wife, Arzola. They came from Cullman, Alabama to Michigan, where he worked in a factory. He had a burden to start a church in the North end of Flint. The mission was sponsored by Central Baptist Church of Flint. The mission began in a little brick building on the corner of Verdun and York Avenue on July 31, 1955. North End Baptist Church was constituted as a church on February 5, 1956, with 30 charter members. The church called Rev. Melvin Eidson as its first pastor. In October 1964, the church bought property and built its new building in the Beecher District, on the corner of Fairhaven and Princeton Streets. The church grew over the years, and is now located at G-7360 N. Clio Road, in Mount Morris.
We are a group of followers of Jesus Christ who have joined together to proclaim Jesus as Savior and Lord. Members of our church live in Mt Morris, Clio, Flushing, Flint, Burton, Davison and many other communities.
We are a Southern Baptist Church, affiliated with the Baptist State Convention of Michigan and the Genesee Baptist Association. We hold to the “Baptist Faith and Message-2000” as our statement of faith. We also hold to the “Church Covenant” and a framed copy of this document can be found on the wall in the foyer of the church.
As is true with all Southern Baptist churches, we are an independent autonomous church that freely chooses to work with other churches to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Based on the teachings of the Word of God (Bible) we expect each member to be faithful in attendance, involved in service using the gifts given them by the Holy Spirit, support the ministries of the church, seek unity in the Body, give a tithe to the work of the church, and support the special offerings and ministries of the church.
Membership at North End
We consider membership in North End Baptist to be a very important decision for the person and for the church. That is why each person is required to attend a Prospective New Members Class. The Pastor will work with you in setting up a class that will meet your schedule.
There are 4 Ways You Can Join North End
You can join the church upon your profession of faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and by following Him in baptism. The Pastor or other church leaders can help you in making this decision.
You may already be a Christian but have never followed the Lord in believer’s baptism. Baptism by immersion and as an act of obedience is required for church membership.
If you are currently a member of a Southern Baptist Church you can join North End by transfer of your church letter.
You can join North End by your statement of faith in Jesus Christ and your scriptural baptism.
