Helping People Become Followers Of Jesus!



Come join as we learn to be followers of Jesus. We're loving harder, digging deeper, and encouraging more here at TNC. We hope this site helps you understand more of who we were, have become, and will become as we journey together.


Our vision is to teach and encourage people to be all that God has created them to be in our homes, in our communities, and in our world!

Values

GOD

God not only created us but he loves us. In fact, He loves us so much that He sent his Son Jesus to die for our sins. God the creator of the universe, wants to have a relationship with us! So all we do, all we say as a church is to bring honor to God!

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible is the ultimate authority of our lives. It is the supreme source of truth and it equips us to live in a way that glorifies God. The Bible reveals who God is and helps us understand the plan of salvation through Jesus Christ.

 

PEOPLE

God created people and He loves people. We want to love people the way that Jesus loves us. This love motivates us to give generously, serve sacrificially, share the truth and grace of Jesus, and invest all we are and have to further God's purpose in the lives of people.
