The year of 2009 is a season of development for the NCC leadership team and the congregation. We are focusing our efforts and energy on discipleship, spiritual growth and maturity. We want to be a blessing to all our community and to this land.
New Discipleship Program -- Starting in June we are beginning discipleship groups. Everyone in our church will take part of a group and have the opportunity to systematically study books of the Bible - starting with the book of James. We know that each person will grow in the knowledge and image of Christ through the study and through the interaction with others in the body of Christ.
Leadership Training Classes -- Our leadership team is meeting weekly to study principles of leadership in pioneering with Dr. Jack Park. Dr. Park is a minister with 40 years of experience.
A Place of Worship -- Our new building has become a local place of worship and prayer. Local ministries use the NCC building for concerts and prayer meetings.
Projects -- We have completed the room for new mothers and babies in our church. There will be TV monitors for the mothers to watch the service as they care for their babies. This facility is completed just in time as there are several new babies in our congregation.
Baptism -- This weekend we baptized 12 people from NCC. It was a beautiful picture of God's mercy and grace. People came from all backgrounds - different faiths, different ages, and different circumstances. There were many who made recent commitments of faith in Jesus Christ. There were youth who have been believers for a few years but have just decided to take the step of baptism as a sign of their faith. Our church rejoiced with each one of them. Please pray for these precious believers.
