Starting February 2019 - Pressing into the Kingdom.
Join us at NSBC to discover what Jesus said about the Kingdom of Heaven and how we should respond.
The Big Story
Relationship – God centred love
We are not God! We have been lovingly created by a loving God (three persons, yet One God). He’s created us to be like him, to love what he loves and to enjoy perfect relationship with Him and one another.
Broken – Self-centred love
Brokenness entered the world because humanity believed a lie that we could live outside of God. This brought distortion to everything and ultimately ends in every human who stays broken facing consequence from God for their rebellion.
Rescue – Pure Love came down
God sent his Son, Jesus (fully God and fully man) to show us this brokenness before we ended up destroying ourselves. He showed pure love ultimately by laying down His life in sacrifice for our sin (the Bible’s word for our brokenness). He died because he loved us! It’s the greatest love story!
New Relationship - abundant life
Because Jesus rose again from death and now offers us a return the that first experience – new life and relationship with God that will show us again how to love others the way he loves us.
This is Good news, not just because God gives us a fresh start in our life but because we will also one day be with Him forever when we die.
