Vision & Mission
Every church needs to have a mission statement that answers the question, Why do we exist? At NCA, we filter every idea, program and budget request through our Vision and Mission statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our mission, then we don’t do it.
Mission Statement: To lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. This is the foundation for everything we do and is the basis of our ministry.
Vision: New Covenant Assembly exists for the purpose of expressing our love for God, for one another, for our neighbor and expressing God’s love to us and to the world.
1. Loving God is our most important rule of Faith and is strongly commanded in scripture (Reference 1).
2. Loving our neighbor is the second most important rule of faith and is also strongly commanded in scripture (Reference 1)
Essentially, this means that what we do, is express our love for God (Jesus Christ) through praise and worship, teaching, preaching, communion, fellowship, community service, and whatever else we can do to honor God, one another, as well as, strangers. We must continually adjust our way of thinking to find ways to show God love and show our love and His love to one another, as well as, the community around us.
None of this even begins to express God’s love for us and for the world. Our Love for Him, for one another, for our neighbors can only be genuine and effective to the degree that we realize, understand, and accept God’s Love for us. 1 John 4:10 – In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
(Reference 1) Matthew 22:37-40: Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
