About Us

We are followers of Christ who desire to love God and love our neighbor. As such, we strive to be a neighborhood church to the neighborhoods of North Stafford.


We gather to worship Christ, We help one another grow in Christ, and we go and live for Christ.


NSBC was officially established 1986 by 10 families who were interested in starting a vibrant and growing church in the North Stafford area. We continue to reach out to the neighborhoods of North Stafford in order to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.


What we believe unites us as a body and protects us against error. Together, we affirm the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000. Click the link below to read our statement of faith.

Baptist Faith & Message

Gather. Grow. Go.


"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry..." –Ephesians 4:11-12
