Missions: Serve Others.
N.G.B.C. participates in a Faith Promise Program as well as giving to the SBC Co-Op program. Each year our church has a Missions Month where we emphasize the Great Commission both locally and throughput the world. Each church member is asked to pray and make a pledge to the Lord about how much they are to give to the missions fund. The pledges are to be done through faith and a promise to the Lord. Through these pledges, N.G.B.C. is able to support five missions and nine missionaries. By serving others, we are serving God by fulfilling the Great Commission: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." ~ Matthew 28:19-20
