Come and join us for four weeks of great adventures from the Bible! 

 

King-less Israel has set a great example for all time and all people. Judges 21:25 says, “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” The truth is that Israel was not King-less! God was their King! The real need of the nation was not simply to have a human king but to turn back to God! We too seem to be living in a day when everyone is doing whatever they desire and no human authority will be able to bring about a remedy. The problems are similar and the solution is the same – we need to turn back to God!


This sermon series, Lesser Known Heroes, is taken from Hebrews 11:32-34, which says, “And what more shall I say?  For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets—who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.” In the four week series we will follow the lives of four lesser known heroes of the faith chapter.  We will
track Samson, Barak, Jepthah and Gideon.

BAPTISM SERMON AUDIO


WHAT KIND OF CHURCH ARE WE?

 

Our stance is MISSIONAL.

We have a mission because Jesus had a mission. Our attachment is to the name of Jesus more than any other name and to the message of the Gospel more than any other message. Our mission is the Great Commission.

               

Our style is INTENTIONAL.

We will go. We will serve. We will send. We are not casual about the mission or the message of the church.  We are scheming to win against the gates of hell and the trickery of the devil.  We are not fearful, we are faithful.

 

Our spirit is TRANSFORMATIONAL.

We are a vessel of life, advancing His kingdom by proclaiming His living Word which when coupled with the power of the Holy Spirit brings new, transformed lives.  We are not here to pamper people or to gain a “nice” reputation in the community.  We proclaim the message of a loved, adopted, Spirit-directed life.

 

Our soul is RELATIONAL.

The deeper sentiment is first upward and then outward.  We exist first to please God and then to reach people.  There is one necessary vertical relationship, there are many horizontal relationships.  Both and all are driven by this root value.  To be God-pleasing and people-reaching gives life to our mission and our message.

 

SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP AT NSCC - What to Expect

 

Chapel Hour at 8am is designed to be heartfelt and simple.  During this time of worship it is typical to sing two or three songs, some old and some new, as led by Pastor Jake and the Sunday Sunshines.  The Lord's Supper is served weekly and the offering is received.  Chapel Hour lasts approximately fifty-five minutes.

 

The Gathering for Worship at 10:15am strives to lead worshipers in authentic, whole-hearted praise of the Lord.  The songs which are chosen are meant to invite worshipers to enter into His presence in spirit and in truth.  Various music styles and instruments are used.  The serving of the Lord’s Supper and the receiving of the offering is included.  The Gathering for Worship lasts approximately seventy-five minutes.

 

The same message is presented at both Chapel Hour and the Gathering For Worship.

 

PREACHING AT NSCC

 

We believe that the Bible is worth preaching. A fundamental goal in our preaching is to let the Word speak.  The exposition of the Scripture is held high.  Preaching primarily focuses on the developed sermon themes of our pastor.  Even in topical series, the goal is to say what the Bible says.  The sermon series avoid devotional flimsiness and are designed to be substantial and faith-building.
