Make a Difference
What We Value
ALIGNMENT - Everyone Pulling In The Same Direction
Alignment simply means everyone pulling in the same direction. Disunity causes confusion, wastes energy, and limits effectiveness. Our goal is for NCC to be both unified as believers and aligned with God’s purpose for our church. Different churches appeal to different people. That doesn’t mean that one is right and the other wrong, it just means that they’re different. If NCC is not your particular flavor or style, no hard feelings, in fact we would love to help you find a church that better fits you.
INVOLVEMENT - Belong and Contribute
NCC is not a place to just sit and watch. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey we have a place for you to belong and contribute. You were crafted with a purpose. Your passions, abilities, and experiences uniquely qualify you for a specific role in the kingdom of God. When you become a part of NCC, we’ll help you find what that is. Imagine being part of a church where you can discover your calling, and be used by God to bless others. That is NCC. Together, there is no limit to what God can do through us.
MULTIPLICATION - Make Disciples
In Acts 1:8 as Jesus sent His disciples out to reach a disconnected culture He said, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Jesus Himself set up a model for multiplication that we follow still today. NCC will always be a church that is focused on reproducing leaders, planting churches, and spreading the gospel. Igniting a movement happens through multiplication!
ADVENTURE - Take Spirit-Led Risks
It’s tragic that so many Christians reduce their relationships with God down to a set of mundane rituals, and unimaginative routines. The Christian life should be an exhilarating quest…a fulfilling adventure. Jesus doesn’t call you to play it safe…He calls you to live on the edge! Taking calculated, spirit-led risk is, and always will be, a part of our DNA. The God of the universe has called us to take part in His mission. We invite you to join us on the adventure of a lifetime.
DIVERSITY - We are Better Together
We don't just tolerate our differences, we celebrate them and fight for unity in the midst of diversity. In our world, there is so much polarization and divide. Now more than ever it is critical for the body of Jesus — the local church — to exemplify His mission to bring together all people and celebrate the uniqueness He designed us with. God calls us to come together in our diversity and build His church in His image, from every tribe, tongue and nation (Revelation 7:9)
COLLABORATION - Build Bridges Together
If somebody broke into your house to steal, kill, and destroy your family, what would you do? Would you attack your brother? Of course not, you would join with your family and fight off the enemy. Why does the body of Christ waste energy competing with each other instead of working together? NCC is all about building bridges with other believers, churches, and our community to make an eternal difference. It’s time for the body of Christ to work together.
CHANGE - Healthy things grow and growing things change
Healthy things grow, and growing things change. If you are resistant to change then NCC is probably not the place for you. Our church will never be static, not now or 20 years from now. As culture evolves and our church grows, we may alter the methods, but we will never change the message. An openness to change is deeply ingrained in our identity and philosophy. God has called us to be a movement, not a monument.
NEXT GENERATION - We Pass it On
In a culture that wants to fight WITH the younger generation, we want to fight FOR them. We are committed to praying for the younger generation, helping them prioritize church, and mobilizing all adults to invest in their development. We will be an example to them, be available for them, and be positive about them.(Nehemiah 4:14 )
