“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see” Hebrews 11:1.
Faith has brought us from our humble beginnings in 1993 to our current reality. North Shelby Baptist Church is literally a light set on a hill, poised to minister to the thousands of families living in the vicinity. New housing developments house thousands of families who need a church home where they can grow in their own faith experiences.
Serving with one another and utilizing our God-given gifts, we preach God’s truths, teach God’s word, create a worldview that moves us toward a personal commitment to him, practice personal involvement in missions, and challenge one another to grow in spiritual disciplines. Men, women, youth, and children are engaged in active learning that forms a solid foundation for their future and the future of our church.
Over and over we have seen the fruits of our faith. When there were few young families with children in the church, we prayed for babies and God answered with many growing families. We literally prayed for dirt to level the church property and God sent dirt fill by the truckloads. When a young church member needed a liver transplant, we not only prayed for a liver but also prayed for the donor’s family and God provided.
Though faith is intangible, God has allowed us to see many very tangible results of the growing faith of his people, young and old, at NSBC. Faith as a necessary spiritual discipline has always been taught at NSBC and will continue to be the cornerstone of our relationships with God.
You’re invited to continue your spiritual growth at NSBC. A nurturing church family can be the perfect setting for you to stretch your faith, to exercise new faith practices and experiences and to see God at work in your life.
