Get to Know Us

North Naples Church is passionate about showing Christ’s love to the Naples community. We are a United Methodist congregation that has been a part of Naples for 50+ years.

Our Story

Our journey began in 1966 at Seagate Elementary School. Two years later, our first church building was built on Seagate Drive.

In 1985, The Caring Place Preschool began as an outreach to families.

In 2000, we moved over to our new location on Goodlette Road. The Caring Place was renamed to the Village School.

We have since expanded and grown our worship and school facilities to integrate a middle school in 2006 and a high school in 2017.

Our Mission

North Naples Church is a family, inspiring and equipping me to follow Jesus.

Our Discipleship Process

We believe life with Jesus is better than life without him. Therefore, we create avenues to help people connect to church and faith. We encourage attendees and members to invite friends and help them get connected to North Naples Church and the Christian faith.
We believe in gathering to worship God. We encourage people to regularly attend a service where they can come to God in worship.
We believe in spiritual growth through studying God’s word with other believers. A study group is available for every stage of the faith journey.
We believe God has given each of us unique gifts and called us to serve. Sharing God’s love in a tangible way through service is a reflection of our faith and Christ’s example.

What We Believe

  • God the Father created everything and called it good
  • Jesus demonstrated God’s love for us and lived, died and was raised from the dead so that we may experience new life
  • The Holy Spirit is present to help us live a life that pleases God
  • God’s grace has gone out to all people
  • The Bible is God’s word and contains guidance for faith and how we live it out
  • All are welcome to participate in the life of the church
  • Faith is a journey and each day we are called to answer the question “what is my next step?”
  • The church exists to be a place of dynamic worship, a training ground for making faith real and a community which reaches out to the world in love and service
