Our Ministries

Women's ministry.jpeg

Women’s Ministry

Women in the church meet at least once a month to share their journey of faith in Christ through study and discussion.  The desire of these meetings is to fellowship, get to know each other more deeply, to encourage and pray for each other, to be a blessing and to be blessed.  NCC Women’s Ministry also meets for breakfast to continue with the fellowship and devotion.

Small Groups

This is where individuals are most known and cared for in community.  

Small groups are where we can be revitalized and strengthened as we seek to reflect the love of Jesus Christ to our fellow Philadelphians.   

It is within these small communities that people can build personal relationships and practice applying to the gospel to their lives.  

Our Children’s Ministries

We believe that children and youth need Jesus more than ever as they face the challenges of this world. NCC has children’s church for ages 4 - 8th grade that meet on Sundays, with age-appropriate teachings. There are also many events throughout the year including a summer Vacation Bible School.

 What We Believe

We believe that Jesus Christ lived the life we should have lived and died the death we deserved to die. His resurrection from the dead is the central fact of human history and of personal meaning in life.

We believe that by trusting in him and turning from of our self-saving strategies we find life, joy, and purpose. 

We are a people who are finding freedom and life as we are learning to trust Jesus, turn from our unbelief and fear, and find joy in the mission he calls us to.We are a confessional church and affirm the summary of biblical doctrine contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the Westminster Shorter and Larger Catechisms.

Distinctives of this document include:

The Atonement of Christ: Jesus Christ lived the life we should have lived and died the death we deserve to die. His sacrifice is the only merit by which God declares sinners to be righteous in his sight.

Inerrancy of Scripture: The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inerrant in all it proclaims and is the only authority for faith and practice.

Total Depravity: All people are not as bad as they could be, but every aspect of our personhood is sinful— our mind, emotions, conscience, and will.

Bodily Resurrection: God will bring all of history to a goal, an end, which will include a final judgment, resurrection of the body, and the new heavens and the new earth.

The Primacy of God’s Role in Salvation: God is the one who calls, regenerates, convicts, justifies, sanctifies and glorifies. We contribute nothing to our salvation except our sin.

We also recognize the Belgic Confession and the Heidelberg Catechism, as well as these ancient creeds, which the Church has affirmed across the centuries as helpful summaries of the essence and activity of God: The Apostles’ Creed, The Nicene Creed.
