Statement of Faith
It is a sin to despise one's neighbor, but blessed is the one who is kind to the needy - Proverbs 14:21; The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor — Proverbs 22:9; Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses - Proverbs 28:27; Contributing to the needs of God’s people, pursuing [the practice of] hospitality - Romans 12:13; For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself" -Galatians 5:14.
Nabhi Christian Ministries (NCM) believes the basic function of the church is to provide spiritual fulfillment in every facet of the life of the believer and their environment, making provision for the impoverished, marginalized and outcast as is instructed by God throughout the bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Christ looked at the needs of the people, provided it, and then begun to preach out the good deeds. NCM's desire is to live up to its true calling — to be compassionate to others in need while proclaiming the gospel and nurturing others to maturity in Christ.
NCM believes worshiping God should be a natural extension of everything we do, surrendering our lives as a lifestyle while gathering ourselves with other believers to practice our beliefs and celebrate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1.
NCM regards our community as an extension of our congregation. Therefore, NCM is dedicated to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through our actions. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:19-20.
By Glorifying God and extending worship by reaching communities through outreach and evangelism, NCM is on a mission dedicated to enhancing impoverished communities by reducing havoc and cultivating healthy environments through a provision of services that mentor, train and develop quality citizens of all ages.
Our vision is to build a church that plays a critical role in strengthening believers and their environment, where people can remove spiritual barriers and hindrances by resolving personal conflict and developing critical skills to achieve the strength, stability and the independence needed to focus on building better relationships, communities and lives that are pleasing to God.
NCM respects the religious background of every individual. We cherish the confidence our community have placed in us to further the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Nabhi Christian Ministries is inspired by the bible and acknowledge it to be the Word of the one True God, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:16-18).
We believe that salvation is a gift obtained through forgiveness. Ephesians 2:8-9 contrasts salvation as a gift from God with human efforts when it teaches, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." Other places in Scripture mention salvation as a gift as well.
We believe Excellence honors God and inspires greatness. We pay close attention to quality and detail.
We believe in equipping God's people for the works of service to build up the body, through church meetings, training, recreation and other activities to help them operate in their gifts and talents, exercising self-control and keeping their spirit, soul and body complete.
We believe education is imperative to communicate effectively. Jesus "grew in wisdom" as He grew "in stature" (Luke 2:52). The Son of God voluntarily put Himself in a position where He needed to absorb knowledge as a man. Education was part of the process.
We believe there is nothing more important than strong united families. "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel" (1Timothy 5:8)
We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of life. We believe strongly in serving the community to grow the church. We consider others more important than ourselves. Therefore, we invest in community and the lives of others to relieve burdens and inspire joy.
We believe that character is more important than talent.
Good character includes traits like loyalty, honesty, courage, integrity, fortitude, and other important virtues that promote good behavior. A person with good character chooses to do the right thing because he or she believes it is the morally right to do so.
Most are inclined to elevate competency as the highest qualification for leadership, but scripture highlights character: men of godly character (1 Timothy 3:1-14; Titus 1:5-16). Basic character quality of a godly person is above reproach.
