1951 to 1988
The Church of God at Paducah was organized on July 22, 1951, by E. W. Carden. Services were held initially in a house and later in a tent. In 1951 the property where the church now stands was purchased for one dollar from Guthrie and Alice May. Some of the members listed on the earliest membership record were Ed and Virginia Mayfield, Clint and Mary Campbell, Norvil and Bernice Rudesill, Jewell Avery, Mrs. Jimmie Rudesill, Eunice Whitlock, Pete Mayfield, Betty Campbell and Ona Cain.
A church building was constructed in 1955 while J.T. Holman was the pastor. In 1983 classrooms were added and dedicated to the memory of Clint Campbell, one of the early members. Campbell had served as clerk and was a faithful member until his death.
In the 1960's during the pastorate of Howard Farmer, the first parsonage was purchased. The old parsonage was sold and a new one purchased in August 1979. The parsonage burned in January 1985, while Leonard Stone was pastor and a new one was built. Stone and his family occupied the new home in May 1985. Under the present pastor, L Dale Payne, seven tithe records have been set including the latest record of $3,060.12. More remodeling has been done to the church, as well as a family room added to the parsonage. Recently, the property next to the parsonage was purchased to build a parking lot and a fellowship hall in the near future.
On Easter Sunday, 1987, the Sunday School attendance record was broken with an attendance of 104.

In 2022, Pastor Bryan Jackson was voted in as pastor of the church and started his tenure on January 23. 2022. Shortly after his assignment, he created a new website and other social media campaigns. We currently use tools like YouVersion Bible, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and RightNow Media.
Our services start on Sunday at 10:30am (Morning Worship) & 7:00 pm (Wednesday Bible Study)each week.
Our goal at the Northside Church of God is to worship God, and to share Jesus with our community. We are a Pentecostal church which believes in the full gospel to the whole man: body, soul, and spirit. We believe that in this time in which we live, there are so many people who are troubled and headed in the wrong direction. We want to point them to Jesus who can turn their lives around.
No matter what your Christian background is (or isn't), we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Here at Northside Church of God, you'll find people of all sizes, stripes and colors, and we welcome everyone--including you.
WHATEVER YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHURCH OR YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT GOD, YOU’RE WELCOME HERE!
Our senior pastor is Bryan Jackson and his teaching will challenge you to wrestle with what you believe and get to know God in a real way. Whether you connect digitally or come to a building, we would like to get to know you and help guide you on your faith journey.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to be challenged. Expect to disagree with some things. Expect to hear a lot about a God who loves you and pursues you. Expect unfiltered conversations & Biblical truth. Expect opportunities to make a difference & make real friends.
WHAT TO WEAR
Come as you are. Our dress code is casual to dressy casual and modesty is always appreciated.
We are a family-oriented body of believers, united through the precious blood and saving grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Great Commission in Mark 16:15 is just as relevant today as it was when Christ originally gave it, to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Our hope is that through practical application of the gospel, we can encourage others to love God, love people, and be a light and a blessing in their community – thus fulfilling Christ’s words in Matthew 5:14-16:
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
