Our core belief is that we were created to be in relationship with God. And, Jesus is the centerpiece of that relationship.
Through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection we believe his followers can experience forgiveness of sin, healing and life-transformation, holiness, and eternal life in God’s presence.
At NCCF, we are committed to Jesus’ teachings and his church, but nothing is more important than simply being committed to him. We are a people who love Jesus and live a life born from the reality of becoming like him.
Jesus gave his followers one central mission — to be disciples who go throughout the world making disciples. This isn’t just for superstars or professional preachers, but an invitation for all who call themselves Christians.

Baptism is going public with your faith in Jesus and declaring to the world your commitment to him. Baptism is the next step right after making a decision to follow Jesus.
What Is The Meaning Of Baptism?
Baptism symbolizes Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. It also symbolizes your new life as a Christian. Being immersed in water represents the end of your old life. Being raised out of the water represents the beginning of your new life.
When Should I Be Baptized?
Baptism is the next step for anyone and everyone who has made a decision to follow Jesus. If you’ve committed to live your life as a Christian, then you are ready to be baptized.
Why Should I Be Baptized?
Baptism is a public declaration that you have decided to follow Jesus. And, it allows others to celebrate that decision with you. Jesus instructs us to be baptized because he was baptized himself. Because Jesus went public about his love for us, we can go public about our love for him.
L.I.F.T. Groups (Life In Fellowship Together) are the heart and soul of NCCF. They meet as small groups on different days and at different times throughout the week. L.I.F.T. Groups are places where people take next steps together.
At NCCF, L.I.F.T. Groups do 3 things:
L.I.F.T. Groups Love
Love is a genuine need for everyone. One of the greatest gifts a group can provide is an atmosphere of love and acceptance. L.I.F.T. Groups provide a place for meaningful friendships to form, accountability to take place, and encouragement to be shared.
L.I.F.T. Groups Learn
In L.I.F.T. Groups we learn about God and we learn about others; we learn from God and we learn from others. We all need mentors and colleagues and friends to help us along the way. Every L.I.F.T. Group uses the Bible to help people learn what it means to follow Jesus.
L.I.F.T. Groups Serve
L.I.F.T. Groups do what needs to be done; not just for those in the group, but for those in the surrounding community. L.I.F.T. Groups respond quickly to needs as they arise. They visit people who are sick or in the hospital, provide meals for people when they need them, and pray for those who are hurting.

God is a giver and generosity is one of God’s attributes. Because we are created in God’s image, God wants us to be generous, too.
At NCCF, we honor God with our finances because the way we handle our money reveals a lot about our priorities. That’s why we consider giving to be an important part of worship.
What Is Tithing?
Tithing reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what he has given us. Giving a tenth of our income is an opportunity to show God that he is first in our lives and that we rely on him more than ourselves. The Bible teaches that we should give regularly, give proportionally, give sacrificially, and give cheerfully.
