At NLCC we are all about connecting people

with the life-changing power of Jesus Christ,

to love God and love others. 

On Our Knees

God promises to share himself and his infinite resources with those who learn to know and trust him. We are pursuing a lifestyle of constant prayer and passionate worship, trusting that God will give us joy and fruitfulness through his Holy Spirit.

Living The Gospel

As we allow the biblical "good news" message of God's saving work in Jesus - forgiveness, acceptance, reconciliation, freedom, God's kingdom, and victory over evil's power - to form us in every aspect of our lives, we carry His grace and truth in us to a world in desperate need of healing.

With Shared Lives

As a community of apprenticeship to Jesus, God's family, and Christ’s body sharing his mission in the world, we journey, grow and reach others together in loving, committed, Christ-centered community.

Through Generous Love

Our words, actions, and efforts to multiply our impact will be focused on helping everyone experience the depth of God’s love for them.

Our Beliefs


NLCC is a church family made up of Jesus Followers from all walks of life, and we are part of the larger family of Canadian and international churches known as the Mennonite Brethren.

We strive to be a community where all are welcome, and hold to these core beliefs that inform everything we do and teach (from the MB Confession of Faith):

We believe in God as eternal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God created and sustains the universe. The eternal purpose of God the Father is to create a people who will bring glory to God forever. God alone is worthy of worship.

We believe that God became human in Jesus Christ.

Jesus came to restore the world because humans have rejected God in disobedience. Jesus taught and modeled the way of God’s kingdom. He died on the cross, making it possible for us to accept a renewed relationship with God. He rose from the dead, broke the power of sin and death, and frees us to live in obedience to God’s will.

We believe that God the Holy Spirit invites all people to be reconciled with God and to join the global family of faith.

Believers confess their faith, are baptized, and join in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and guided by the Bible, members of the church seek to live as followers of Christ and invite others to experience this new life.

As Christians, we are called to turn:

  • from ignorance of God to a personal relationship with God
  • from bondage of sin and past mistakes to freedom, forgiveness, and healing
  • from individualism to interdependence with others in the local church
  • from lifestyle choices that harm us, others, and the earth to choices that nurture wholeness, healing, joy, and peace
  • from hating enemies and ignoring neighbours to showing love and justice to all
  • from loving possessions to sharing with all in need
  • from aimless existence to a mission of representing and proclaiming God’s kingdom on earth

As Christians, we look forward to the day when God will once again send Jesus to bring all things under God’s eternal rule.
