aone:eight is a movement of ordinary people, empowered by God’s Spirit, doing what Jesus did, together, wherever they are.
At NCC, serving is at the heart of a transformed, Christ-centered life. It’s about moving our resources and ourselves in response to human need, acknowledging that the worst kind of need is the kind that happens with nobody else around. In Jesus’ inaugural address in Luke 4:18-20, you’ll notice three aspects to His mission: spiritual, physical, and social transformation.
As a missional community, we’re called to respond to not just spiritual, but physical and social poverty, and within that framework several interests have emerged -- initiatives that pulse with the people of NCC and that together we’re equipped to help address. Locally and globally, these are the places that our skills, experiences, resources, and our collective heartbeat meet.
From the first words of Jesus at Nazareth in his inaugural address to his last words to the twelve apostles before he ascended into heaven, He calls us to respond and to ACT -- To assist the poor, care for the sick, and transform through reconciliation.
You’ll notice each part of ACT asks the question: What else can we do? How can we facilitate the desires the Lord has placed in your life within Missions? We want to unleash the passions and knowledge within you!
May the Spirit guide you as you consider these opportunities and your involvement.
Straightforward. Simple. It’s not our idea. It’s God’s mission, it’s your mission.
