BECOME A MEMBER
Interested in Covenant Membership?
Church members commit to joining a spiritual family who provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service, and sacrifice. Our pastors and ministry leaders pledge to assist our members with care, counsel, prayer, and teaching. It is our hope that you will consider becoming a member at NBC. Read our church covenant below.
Four Reasons to Be a Member
1. It’s Biblical
Christ is committed to the church. “Christ loved the church, and gave himself for her.” (Ephesians 5:25)
2. It’s Countercultural
It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age when people resist being committed to anything – a job, a marriage, our country. Partnership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision.
3. It’s Practical
It defines those upon whom we can depend. Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies our church family.
4. It’s Healthy
It produces spiritual growth. The Bible gives major emphasis for the need of Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to a specific church family.

NBC Membership Directory
The first step in being able to care well for one another as a church body is to be able to put names with faces. One way we have sought to help in this area is by way of our NBC Family Directory (typically updated and printed quarterly).
If you have recently become a member of NBC, we would love to get you in our next addition! Please fill out the form below so that the church office can get your information and picture added to our next copy of the directory.
