What We Believe

As the children of God, we have submitted ourselves without reservation to God’s good governance and declare God’s leadership for us as individuals and as a church body.  As a result of this, we are people who are governed by the Word of God.

As a result of this we have drawn up biblically based directives for our lives together in three foundational documents, all downloadable on the following pages. Our Statement of Faith, which outlines from the Bible a summary of what we believe. Our Church Covenant which traces from the Word of God a picture of how we agree to live together in community as a church. Our Church Constitution which also seeks to draw from God’s Word as best we can, practical guidelines for church governance. These documents, taken together, abbreviate the Biblical doctrines that shape the life and ministry of NSBC.
