what we

believe

about our church

For over 100 years NLCC has been a mainstay in North Liberty as well as surrounding communities. Starting as a small building in downtown North Liberty, disciples were made and serving those around us was foundational to our ministry. Though our location changed almost 50 years ago to just north of town, making disciples and serving those around us is what we’re all about. 

We want to experience God and transform lives through His power.   

Core Values of NLCC

devote daily

Devote ourselves daily to a personal relationship with Jesus.

“And this is my prayer:  that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.”  (Philippians 1:9-11)

guide biblically

Offer and receive biblical guidance in all areas of life.

All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for very good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

pursue community

Pursue genuine relationships with one another based on love.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)

live transparently

Live authentically, sharing our struggles and celebrating our victories.

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed.  The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”  (James 5:16)

Engage Missionally

Engage intentionally with our communities and the world to make disciples.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I  commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)
