What we believe

NONA CHURCH
STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto eternal separation from God. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

7 Practices in the Way of Jesus

The good news of the Gospel is that God has made a way to restore all that is broken in the world through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross (Colossians 1:19-20). Through the work of the Holy Spirit in us, we are committed to living life according to the example and teaching of Jesus. We are committed to walking in the Way of Jesus – to adopt a way of being in the world that brings our head, heart, and hands into alignment with Jesus.

These seven practices comprise a series of next steps that God has prepared for us to walk in as we follow Jesus. While they do not encompass the whole of discipleship to Jesus, they do represent a significant portion of Christian maturity, to which Nona Church is committed to pursuing in all of life.

HOUSE MODEL OF MINISTRY

At Nona Church, we use a “house model” to delineate and define the different environments in which spiritual formation happens. The imagery of a house not only provides a helpful grid for understanding how spiritual formation happens at Nona Church but its design reminds us that the Church is a family where people can find home and be brought into the family of God.

This “house model” for spiritual formation is made up of four environments:

Cul-de-sac

The cul-de-sac is a space where people can belong before they believe. This is a low-pressure, high-relational space where anyone should feel welcome.

Living Room

The living room is a space where people spiritually grow in consistent relationship with one another. This space gives people the opportunity to share life with, learn from, and encourage each other as they grow in their understanding of, love for, and capacity to walk in the Way of Jesus in every aspect of their lives.

Front Porch

The front porch is a Jesus-centered space that is open and accessible to all people. This space provides teaching that is challenging to believers but accessible for those who are still exploring faith in Jesus.

Kitchen

A kitchen environment is a space where people are developed, equipped, taught, and challenged to learn and lead in the Way of Jesus. This space is focused on a Christian maturity that incorporates belief, affection, and action.
