Our Vision as a church is to bring God glory through Jesus Christ, as we were designed by God as His program for today to display His grace and wisdom to the world (Ephesians 2:7, 3:6, 10).
Our God is awesome! His overall purpose is centered on His glory, and He accomplishes His purpose through various means. Scripture unfolds how He has received glory by accomplishing His stated purposes for everything He has created.
Today He does this through His church! The church is special, God has decided to use it to bring reconciliation between Jew and Gentile through the Cross of Christ (1 Cor. 1:22-25). God has designated the church as a holy creation, able to instruct even the angels (Eph. 3:10)!
Since our purpose is to bring God glory through Jesus Christ, as a whole we desire to display what God has done through our life together as a church, demonstrating the love of Jesus through our love for each other (John 13:35). Not only that, we follow God's commands and gather together to sing praises, foster our relationship with Him through prayer, intentionally listening to and reading His Word (the Holy Bible), and caring for each other (and the world)!
While we may not know what our day to day lives may bring us we desire to cultivate our spiritual lives here and now, seeking to serve side by side with our Lord Jesus Christ in the mission field of Center Moreland (and the surrounding areas). We work together as people of many ages, backgrounds, and occupations to serve the True King!
Based on the authority of Scripture, we at NBC emphasize the preaching and teaching of Scripture as the primary means of ministry. This means that we highly value using The Bible as THE means of learning about God and teaching others and ourselves about Him. From this view of The Bible we encourage meaningful relationships that promote spiritual growth, for the aim of discipleship and biblical fellowship!
