What We Believe
We invite you to partner with NBCC. If you are new to NBCC and would like to learn more about us, then Discovering NBCC is for you. Discovering NBCC is a way to find out about our family of believers and learn the next steps to get connected. It is a Sunday morning class in which a person can discover the history, personality, passion, and purpose God has placed on the heart of NBCC.
Discovering NBCC meets in Pastor Steve’s office outside of the main Sanctuary. Our desire is for anyone new to NBCC come and discover us. Our next Discovering NBCC group will take place on September 12, 2021 following the 10:30 Service (around noon).
NBCC – Real people who desire to live exceptional lives that point others to an irresistible Savior.
We are a non-denominational fellowship of believers who choose to follow Jesus Christ and be identified by His Name, only. Like Christians about whom we read in the Bible, we have no formal creed or statement of faith. But the following beliefs we have gleaned from the Bible…
The Bible – a totally reliable guide
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and serves as final authority on what we believe and how we should live. It is our guide to understanding God and His meaning of life for each of us. (Psalm 119:105)
Sin – our greatest problem
We believe that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and separated themselves from fellowship with God. (Romans 3:23)
Jesus Christ – our only mediator
We believe that God sent Jesus, His only Son, to earth to restore our relationship with Him and that Jesus will return someday for His people. (John 3:16,17; I Thessalonians 5:9)
Salvation – an undeserved gift
We believe that forgiveness of sin, a restored fellowship with God and the promise of eternal life are available to every person who trusts in Christ as Savior and Lord. (I John 1:9; Acts 4:12)
Obedience – a humble response
We believe that Jesus requires those trusting Him should turn from a life of sin, confess their faith in Christ and be baptized into Him through the biblical pattern of immersion, to identify us with His death, burial and resurrection. (II John 1:6; Romans 6:3-11
The Holy Spirit – an unseen power
We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in the life of every Christian to provide understanding of spiritual truths, strength for living, and empowerment to uniquely serve. (John 14:26; Acts 2:38,39)
The Church – a spiritual family
We believe the church is God’s family on earth to spread the good news of abundant life, both now and for eternity. (Hebrews 10:25; Ephesians 3:14,15)
