About us

History 

Northside Christian College was founded in 1985 as a ministry of Nexus Church (formerly Northside Christian Church, Brisbane) in order to provide a high quality education that would partner with and support the values of Christian families. Through the years, Northside has expanded and grown whilst maintaining that same foundation.

Nexus Church

Nexus Church began as an outreach ministry in the Stafford area (North Brisbane) in 1952. The Church moved to its present location in Everton Park in 1976 with just 80 people. Over the last few decades, Nexus has grown into a large, thriving Christian community in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. ‘Nexus’ means ‘a point of connection’, and the desire of the church is to be a life-giving Church – helping connect people to God, community and purpose.

Nexus Church is part of the Australian Christian Churches. The Assemblies of God in Australia was formed in 1937 and has experienced consistent growth, particularly in the last twenty years. It adopted a new name of Australian Christian Churches in 2007 and currently consists of more than 1,100 churches.

Christian School located in North Brisbane

Our campus is located in Everton Park, about 12 km north from the Brisbane CBD. Located in Flockton St (next to the hospital), and just off Old Northern Road.

Christian Education

We believe that a Christian is a person who has acknowledged Jesus Christ as both Saviour and Lord of his/her life. That is, a Christian is a person who:

  • believes that Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, 
  • died and rose again
  • has recognised his/her sinful condition
  • has received forgiveness of his/her sins through faith in Jesus Christ and
  • seeks to live his/her life in obedience to God’s Word.

Christianity is, in essence, an ongoing relationship with God – not just a Sunday morning event, but a way of life.

The Northside community is enriched by students and families from more than 100 churches of various denominations, although the majority comes from evangelical, charismatic or pentecostal churches.

Leadership

The Directors of Northside are appointed by Nexus Church and are responsible for the spiritual, legal and financial oversight of the College. Managerial responsibility for the College's operations is delegated by the Directors to the Principal.

Board of Directors of Northside Christian College

As a Board, we are uncompromising in our commitment for the College to remain an excellent educational facility. We are a unique Christian college, in that we are staffed, led and populated by families who have an active and genuine faith in Jesus Christ. This has a profoundly positive impact on Northside’s culture.
