Our Mission

Simply put, our mission is to make Christ-like disciples in all nations. It's our desire to offer people of all walks of life a safe and friendly place to connect with God, grow in Biblical knowledge and serve in our community. Our church is a place to engage in discipleship that is continuously inspiring, instructing, and involving. 


We draw our mission statement from key passages in the Bible such as Matthew 22:37-40 and Matthew 28:19-20: 


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."


"There go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."



Our vision

We believe that God is just now at the dawn of the day he wants to show us. Here are the three ways for us to reach all that God has in store for our future. Here is our "I" vision:




Inspiration



Sunday mornings are the time we gather as a congregation to worship and receive divine inspiration. Our worship services include contemporary music, monthly communion, videos or drama, inspirational messages, and fellowship with other believers. 



Instruction


Discipleship Classes are available to everyone of all ages. These classes dig deeper into God's Word every Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. or 10:45 a.m.  Classes on various topics are also available on Wednesday nights at 6:45 p.m. 




Involvement


Disciple Groups complete our circle of growth at various locations and times throughout the month. We have three kinds of Disciple Groups: LifePoints, ConnectPoints & MissionPoints. These groups share life together or serve together in Biblical Community. There are plenty of ways to be involved at the Naz. Check out our Get Connected page. 

Our Values

We really value those things that make us better people and more faithful Christians. Here is a list of key items that we put a lot of stock in, in no particular order of importance...


Biblical Teaching

We believe that a commitment to teaching God's Word is an essential part in transforming the life of the believer and the church. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Timothy 4:2)


Christian Holiness

We believe that holiness of heart and life is the highest calling of the Lord on our lives. We believe that the Holy Spirit enables us to live lives pleasing to the Lord; both by the transformation that He makes in our lives and by our seeking to honor the Lord in everything we say and do. 

(Romans 6:19; Hebrews 10:22-24; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24) 


Worship Lifestyle

We believe that inspiring worship is an essential part of the Christian experience and a powerful dynamic in drawing a seeker into a relationship with God. Worship should comprise a lifestyle expressed with private consistency and corporate vibrancy. (Psalm 29; 95)


Faithful Prayer

We believe that prayer is an essential ingredient for creating a healthy church. Thus, we intend to have every ministry and activity characterized by a dependence on God and to provide opportunities for believers to grow in their prayer life. (John 15:7; Acts 1:14)


Missional Living

Lost people matter to God, thus they ought to matter to the Church. We believe a church is as strong as its sending power. We support missions locally and worldwide by giving of our resources and providing opportunities for our people to serve. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8)


Family Unity

We believe in the family and want to do all we can to strengthen the bonds of love not only in the family of God (the Church) but in our homes. We purposefully create opportunities for our surrounding community to join our family in events that promote strong family values and lasting relationships. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)


Biblical Community

We believe that God desires His church to experience authentic relationships. Thus, we intend to provide opportunities for people to know and to be known, to love and to be loved, to care and to be cared for, to serve and to be served so that everyone might experience the power of true friendship. Life change happens best in small groups because belonging encourages authenticity. (Acts. 2:42) 


Christian Maturity

The Good news is that God accepts us as we are but the great news is that He Doesn’t leave us that way. We believe it is essential to continue to grow in your relationship to God. (Ephesians 4:11-15; Hebrews 6:1-3)


Cultural Relevance

We Believe our task is to present the Gospel in a way that is relevant and meaningful to people’s lives today without compromising Biblical and personal purity. (1 Corinthians 10:23; Ephesians 3:8-9; 1 Corinthians 9:22-23)


Godly Leadership

We believe that the key to successfully fulfilling God's mission for our church is having staff and lay leaders who are committed to integrity and holiness. (1 Timothy 3, Titus 1)
