  • We All Scream Green: We get that church is not about our personal preferences. So, we all wear the NLCC jersey and are unified under the one vision God has given to our Pastors, John B. and Debbie Lowe . (Psalm 133)

  • Life is Short - Church Should Be Fun: We get that Jesus loves His Church. So this is a place where learning God's Word is a joy and where the Holy Spirit, laughter, love, hope, acceptance and forgiveness abound! (Psalm 100)

  • We Live By Faith: We get that faith pleases God and all things are possible for everyone who believes. So we believe God for big things and we take Him at His Word. (Hebrews 11:6)

  • Generosity Defines Us: We get that God loves a cheerful giver. So we are known for generosity in our personal giving, in caring for one another, in giving to our community and those in need around the world. (Isaiah 32:8)

  • We Don't Trash Talk: We get that the power of life and death is in our tongue. So we speak words of faith and we say good things about others. (Ephesians 4:29)

  • This Is Not A Spectator Sport: We get that people connect with their God-given gifts and divine purpose through the local church. So no one is allowed to be a full-time bench warmer, consumer or spectator, instead everyone is expected to use their God-given gifts to advance the gospel through the church. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

  • We Reach Youth - We Honor Age: We get that age brings wisdom and deserves respect; we also recognize that God is pouring out His Spirit on our sons and daughters! So our style is youthful and our ministries are multi-generational. (Acts 2:17-18)

  • This Is Not Church As Usual: We get that to many people, church is irrelevant. So we are intentional on being a place where the word of faith is taught and the spirit of faith is caught in creative, practical and culturally relevant ways. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

  • We Don't Know Everything: We get that dependence on God, prayer and learning from others in a spirit of humility is foundational to all we do. So we are dependent upon the Lord, teachable and willing to learn from others. (1 Peter 5:5-6)

  • The Queen of Sheba Inspires Us: We get that a spirit of excellence glorifies God and impacts people - especially the lost - breathless and receptive to God and His Word. So we give God our best and seek excellence in all that we do. (1 Kings 10)

  • We Are Building A Movement Not a Monument: We get that eternity is a long time. So we are focused on constant change, continual growth, reaching people for Christ and expanding our influence for the gospel. (Acts 12:24)

  • You Only: We get that we are not going to wait for others or someone else to do what needs to be done. If it’s work, giving, loving, and serving then I will do it. (Philippians 4:15) 

  • The Lost Get Saved - The Saved Get Victory: We get that our job is to reach the lost and equip the saved! (Matthew 28:18-20)
