A Duluth church celebrated its 25th anniversary on Sunday.

Northstar Baptist Church was started in the living room of a rented house on April 9, 1989. The pastor who started it, David Sorenson, is still at the helm.

Sorenson said he is excited about the impact they've had on the community in 25 years.

"Seeing families that are broken and families that are distressed and children that are on the brink of getting into all kinds of problems, of drugs and sex and crime," he said, "and we've been able to reach literally hundreds of children in this city over the last 25 years. And that's been a real blessing."

The church now owns 10 acres of land on Arlington Avenue, and Sorenson said about 125 members call it home.
