The Bible says we are not finished as people. Our church exists to connect people with Jesus and one another—to make more and maturing followers of Christ. We will continue to grow people in the WISDOM lifestyle through our existing ministries, outreaches, and events that touch people in every stage of life.
Our church mission is to know Christ and make Christ known. We gather in worship to receive what God alone gives and we scatter to share it where we live, work, and play. We pursue the WISDOM lifestyle (Worship, Inreach, Service, Disciplines, Outreach, and Multiplication), but none of us has it mastered. As people in process, we trust God’s promise in the Scriptures which say that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
God’s work in and through NBLC to shape the life of Christ in us isn’t finished. No matter where we each are in our faith journey, we can all come to know Christ more, work out more fully the new life He worked in us through baptism, and center our lives more completely on making Christ known. Therefore, we will continue to provide multi-generational opportunities to grow deeper and wider as a church through outreach & inreach events, discipleship opportunities, connect groups and service to our community.
We began as a church in our pastor’s home in 2000 and God has continued to accomplish His mission ever since that time. Looking back, we celebrate:
- 273 baptisms at NBLC and nearly and another 50 from our daughter churches!
- 400 people on average worship with us each week.
- 100+ children are connected with NBLC Kids and NBLC Youth and Confirmation Experience.
- 80-100 people take advantage of Connect Groups and Bible Studies.
- 155 people are actively serving on NBLC Teams.
As great as these things are, we believe that God isn’t done yet! We believe that He has more ahead – more than we could even ask or imagine!
