Sunday Morning Worship

Preaching 

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. We believe that Paul’s instructions to Timothy still hold true today when he said “Preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” (II Timothy 4:2-4)

We believe that through the faithful preaching of the Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ we are ministering in a powerful way to our community. We regularly preach verse by verse through different books of the Bible with topical series interspersed throughout different times of the year.

Music 

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. We have a blended style of music, drawing from both classic hymns of the faith and sound contemporary music. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our community of faith, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
 
Prayer

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer is sweet smelling incense before the Lord. NPBC is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Each week we usually have several opportunities to meet for prayer. Once a month on Sunday evenings, the church comes together for a special time of prayer.

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, NPBC holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
