Welcome to Northwoods Baptist Camp

 

Mission Statement

Our Purpose

The purpose of NORTHWOODS BAPTIST CAMP is to provide a Christian camping opportunities for young people and adults with the primary intent of leading them to a real encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ and to accept Him as their personal Saviour. We strive to create an environment conducive for Christian growth, that strengthens families, and teaches youth and adults to serve in local churches. It is a place of decision in the areas of salvation, full surrender, and consistent Christian walk.

The majority of unsaved young people who attend Northwoods Baptist Camp will accept the Lord as their Savior before they leave.
Sixty percent or more of those in full-time service today made their decision to surrender to the Lord while at a youth camp or a retreat meeting.
Two-thirds of the young people who come to Northwoods each week make some type of decision that becomes a stepping stone to spiritual growth in their lives.

Our Doctrine

  • We believe…
  • in the biblical account of creation.
  • in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the Bible.
  • in the eternal, triune God.
  • in the incarnation and virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • in the sinless life and substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.
  • in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave.
  • in the imminent, pretribulational return of Jesus Christ.
  • in the eternal punishment of the unsaved in a literal, burning hell.
  • in salvation by faith through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
  • in a separated stand from the world and unto the Word of God.
  • in a separated stand from any ecumenical group such as the World Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches, from cults, from the charismatic movement and from other organizations of erroneous faith.
