whAt is faith?

Faith is about a living relationship with the loving God. For us church isn’t a social club and it’s definitely not about being religious. We’re a group of people who have discovered that God is real and who live out our faith in Jesus through all of life.

vision + values

NMBC’s vision is to be a church that is rooted and built up in the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that the congregation is equipped to live out and share the reality of our faith within the local community of Newton Mearns and in the places God has placed us.

We seek to do this as we:

Creating deep relationships of support and encouragement, particularly through our small groups so that we are all built up in our faith together.

Making disciples as people learn from the Bible, pray together and put what they learn into practice to become more like Jesus in their everyday lives.

Serving our community, sharing the good news about Jesus with those we know and participating in world mission, inspired by God’s love.

As we do these things we seek to model the following values:

Christlike and Christ-centred

distinctive in our individual and corporate lives.

Biblical

communicating clearly and meaningfully the transforming Gospel.

Welcoming and hospitable

offering friendship and creating authentic relationships across generations.

Encouraging and accepting

building each other up in faith and loving each other.

Expectant of the Holy Spirit

being bold and courageous partners with Jesus Christ in daily life as we witness.
