Belief, faith, religion, and spirituality in Northport, Michigan are the focus of topics in this part of our guide.

For the most part, the resources in this category will represent ministries and places of worship in Northport, although websites on subjects relating to beliefs, faith, religion, or spirituality within the village would also be appropriate.

In general usage, belief is an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists, although it is also used to define a religious conviction. Faith is stronger, as it suggests a complete trust or confidence in someone or something, such as a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion based on religious understandings rather than proof. Religion is a particular system of faith and worship, such as the Christian religion. Spirituality is harder to define, depending on the context, but Christian spirituality relates to the work of the Holy Spirit within the life of the believer.

A recent survey suggests that Northport residents are nearly as religious as those in the overage Michigan community, but considerably less religious than the average American, as 41.8% of Northport respondents cited an affiliation with a religion, while 41.9% of Michiganders and 49.4% of Americans were religious.

Of the Northport residents who were religious, a large majority were Catholics, who were followed distantly by the Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, and Baptists. If represented, non-Christians made up fewer than one-tenth of one percent of respondents.
