Our Purpose

New Community Church exists to bring Glory to God, to Make Disciples and to Share God's Love with our community.

 

Our Mission - why we exist

To Glorify God
Our primary purpose in all we do is to bring glory to God. We will, by the enabling grace of God, seek to elevate the character of our Lord so as to promote honor, praise and singular devotion to Him. Eph. 3:21; 1 Pet. 4:11

To Make Disciples
Jesus clearly expressed the primary way to bring glory to God after He rose from the grave and gave His followers the simple command, "Go into all the world and make disciples." God's primary assignment for His church is succinctly stated in what many refer to as "The Great Commission."  Matt. 28:19-20

This is accomplished through two primary tasks:

Evangelizing the Lost
The task of disciple-making involves evangelism. We are to faithfully proclaim the gospel to the nations, trusting in the sovereignty of the Lord and the power of His gospel for the conversion of souls.  1 Cor. 15:1-4; 1 Cor. 2:1-5

Equipping the Saints
Our goal is to see believers develop a workable knowledge of the Word of God that will enhance their effectiveness in serving the Lord and protecting them from false doctrine. It is our desire to see all who are a part of our community to become fully passionate followers of Christ.  Eph. 4:10-16; Col. 1:28-29

To Share God's Love
We are committed to becoming a headquarter of love in our community. As His disciples, our mutual exchange of love will serve as the best evidence of being true followers of Jesus.  John 13:34-35; John 3:16; Rom. 5:8; 1 John 4:9-10
