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.
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.
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.
Our words, actions, and efforts to multiply our impact will be focused on helping everyone experience the depth of God’s love for them.
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):
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.
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.
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 look forward to the day when God will once again send Jesus to bring all things under God’s eternal rule.
