Praise & Worship
Praise shapes our perspective and can change the outlook of our day. We come together to recognize God’s faithfulness and the ways He has blessed us during our Sunday morning services and Nights of Worship.
We want to equip families and keep kids connected to God all year long and it happens every Sunday and Wednesday at NBCA. You are part of a family where we value excellence, creativity, intentionality, and safety in all that we do.
We were created to do life together. Our goal is that you will be prepared and equipped to model your life after the teachings of Jesus. Wherever you are on the journey, you are welcome to join us in our Life Groups.
Pastor Sam and Jill
We believe the Bible teaches, everyone needs a place called home and a people called family. The Bible tells us in numerous ways; we have a Father and He is a good Father. In a healthy church, people can grow in faith, mature in Christ and discover the depth of the Father’s love in the family of God.
We will communicate to our communities, schools, businesses, restaurants, shops, government offices, etc. – We are here for you. Let’s cover this valley with the love of Christ and embrace Christ’s commission to go and make disciples.
What we Believe
Our Vision is to be a life giving church reaching all people with the life changing message, love and power of Jesus Christ.
Our Mission is to honor Jesus Christ by fulfilling the great commandment (Mark 12:30) in being praise and worship-centered, by fulfilling the great commitment (1 Corinthians 12:27) in being family-focused, and by fulfilling the great commission (Matthew 28:19-20) in being discipleship-oriented.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that God intends for us to live fruitful and holy lives through the power of the Holy Spirit enabling us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.
We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
WHAT ARE YOUR WEEKEND SERVICES LIKE?
Each weekend at New Brighton Christian Assembly, you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and a practical, relevant message. You’ll also find a printed outline for notes with your info page that will help you make the most of each week’s teaching. Children are well-ministered to in a safe and loving classroom during our fun-filled God’s Big Back Yard and Champions Services.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you! We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you. If you would like to get to know us better, visit our Connect Area after service.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO ATTEND YOUR SERVICES?
You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Services. Come in what is comfortable for you, because NBCA is not about what you look like or what you wear.
DO YOU HAVE A MIDWEEK SERVICE?
We have a family mid-week service which focuses on worship and Bible study. God’s Big Back Yard, Champions, Powersource and Adults will find ways to connect with others in these small group settings.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
At NBCA your children are a top priority. Our Nursery, Toddler and PreK classrooms are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We also offer a dynamic ministry to our 1st—6th graders called Champions for Christ. If your children are in 7th—12th grade, we would love for them to join us for Powersource Youth Ministry each Wednesday.
HOW CAN I BE DISCIPLED AND GROW?
Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ. Our Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. You can begin the process by being part of our introductory classes called, “Our Church’. These classes help to introduce you to NBCA and the ministries here.
HOW CAN I MEET OTHERS AND GET CONNECTED?
Life Groups are a great way to connect. These groups feature specific interests such as basketball, cycling, hunting, book studies, baking and much more! In each of these groups, you can build friendships, learn more about our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.
WHY DO YOU HAVE SMALL GROUPS?
Small groups are an important part of NBCA; groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. As NBCA grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connect. Groups are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED IN A SMALL GROUP?
One of the easiest things to do at NBCA is to participate in a small group. Groups provide a place for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Wherever you live, there’s a small group near you. Click here to join a group today!
“This church is everything a Christian could want. Such a loving, non judgmental community of people. Live band music, with both modern worship and the classics. The love of Christ truly shines here. The Holy Spirit is present. I instantly felt welcome. My son was riveted to his seat and attentive to the Word of Christ throughout the entire service.”
We Call These Lifegroups...
For our winter season of life groups, you will have the opportunity to reflect on the Sunday’s Message with others within the church family. Acts 2:42 tells us the chruch devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teachings and fellowship. Simply choose a group and enjoy fellowship that adds to personal and church-wide spiritual growth.
