The doctrine of Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings and restored lives. Whether a new member or a mature Christian, every believer should have a clear understanding of salvation and the difference this truth makes in our lives and churches. “Are there ever really any second chances in life? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. The Bible calls it Salvation. Salvation is God’s second chance for every one of us.”
Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation as many believed following their healing. Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome.“Christ’s death on the cross not only provides for forgiveness of sin, but also healing for sickness. The One who gave you the gift of eternal life…is the same One who can heal your body."
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as our Fellowship continues to take the gospel message around the globe. “The baptism in the Holy Spirit provides the believer with an empowering for witness and to live a life pleasing to God.”
With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s Second Coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others. “As followers of the risen Lord Jesus, we have the assurance of a wonderful hope…a reunion with our saved loved ones, and more importantly with our Savior. We call this ‘Our Blessed Hope!’”
OUR CORE CULTURE
Learn more about who we are and what we value
We Will Be Authentic Believers Because:
In a time when a lot of things seem fake, people disguising and portraying themselves as someone they are not, we will be different. We will be who we are, and Whose we are. Through good times and bad, through fun times and struggles, we will be us and be authentic to what we believe. We have decided our circumstances should not affect who we are except to make us more real with God. So go ahead, it's ok to be you.
Authentic Believers Love Relationships
In a time where there is a lot of fake "friends" who really do not know each other, we value authentic relationships. Not just ones built on comments or likes, but on real conversations about what and who we are, where we are truly at in life, our faith, and being there for each other every step of the way. Relationships the way they were in the Bible, through good and bad, authentic and meaningful, full of love, and built around God.
Authentic Believers Love To Serve
Because we love Jesus and we love people, our hearts naturally navigate toward serving others. This is a Biblical model that Jesus taught. We realize that if we want to lead in our homes, workplaces, and nation, we must model servant leadership. We desire to have an authentic heart of service, not one just birthed out of religious duty
Authentic Believers Love Generosity
We love to give and do so generously. Ok, yes that includes our financial giving, but yet so much more. We want to be generous with our time, talents, abilites, and literally US! Generosity is a lifestyle, and we desire to model that. We want to be like the disciples, to give what we have!
Authentic Believers Love Worship
Worship is a big part of who we are at NBC! We do not want to be "those people" who come into church and try to impress others with our external expressions of worship, but people who are truly worshipping Jesus and who He is, and not just on Sunday morning! This is taught in every phase of our ministry, from nursery on up. We truly believe that authentic worship is all about giving God what He deserves, and that is our very best in all that we have.
Authentic Believers Love the Bible
We believe the Bible is truly the Word of God, and that everything in it is true. In all aspects of ministry, we have the desire to teach the truth of the Bible. We do not preach opinions or something popular because it sounds good, we teach what the Word of God says. Context is important for life change to occur, and life change, including our own, is what we are all about.
Authentic Believers Love to Pray
In a world in which the term prayer is so obscured, we desire the true relationship that comes from authentic prayer with God. This is not through praying when we need Him, or the ritualistic prayers, but through true conversation with God, and not just us speaking but taking time to listen for what He desires for us. We desire to pray like Jesus prayed, that God's will be done, and mean it!
