SABETHA

About Us


Our Story

Our church was established in 1858 by Baptist, Presbyterian and Methodist families. In their denominational diversity, they chose to organize under the Congregational name. They first gathered for worship in the town of Albany but soon relocated to Sabetha due to the railroad bypassing Albany.


Around 1871 they merged with another church in Sabetha and built a church building. There have been many changes to the building and the constitution over the past 150 years but the church remains a diverse group of believers who are committed to God, to His Word and to the purpose He has for each of us.

In 2006 the Sabetha campus relocated to a new facility on the north side of town. At this time they also changed the name to NorthRidge Church. We cherish the rich history God has given us and continue to change in order to stay effective at "Reaching and Equipping People for Christ without Borders."

We have since grown to become a network of churches with five campuses across Kansas (Sabetha and Seneca) and Nebraska (Humboldt, Falls City and Peru). 

Our Leadership

NorthRidge Church believes in an elder-led church with congregational decision-making involvement. The day-to-day leadership, shepherding and decision-making are done by the pastors, staff and ministry team leaders under the guidance and oversight of congregation approved, biblically qualified men.
