Northwest Community Church was born from a faithful group of twelve Christ centered worshipers that felt Las Vegas needed a progressive faith based church body that embraced ALL worshipers, regardless. They envisioned a church that provided a place for joyous worship, reflection, rejuvenation and rebirth, a safe place where all are hugged by Christ’s love and accepted for who God made them to be.
Now over 16 years later the vision has taken root and grown into a vibrant church community offering strength for the weak, food for the hungry, comfort for the hurting and family for the abandoned. Believers striving to move beyond the trite and empty cliche of love and service toward depths of love that build confidence and boldness seeking avenues of service that radically change our world.
The Apostle Paul wrote, “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28).
”Still Speaking”. It’s the shorter form of “God is still speaking,” a campaign by the United Church of Christ to remind us that God still has a lot more to say. Since 2004, “Still Speaking” has worked with thousands of UCC churches and individuals across the country to make religion relevant again and to extend an extravagant welcome to all—because no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.
In 2004, it was concluded that there was a present and real need for the United Church of Christ to spread its message of extravagant welcome which continues to historically re-shape our understanding of the Christian faith and proclamation. The UCC responded to this call and challenge with a new identity and marketing campaign to let all others know that anyone could find a spiritual home in the United Church of Christ, be strengthened and nurtured in their faith and be blessed to reach out to others with their God-given gifts and talents.
Today, under one collective identity, we can enthusiastically lift up that the UCC is a welcoming, justice-minded Christian community. At a time when religion is too often portrayed as narrow-minded and exclusive, many are raising their VOICES for an alternate vision:
- Where God is all-loving and inclusive
- Where the Church of Jesus Christ welcomes and accepts everyone as they are
- Where your mind is nourished as much as your soul
- Where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary
- Where together we grow a just and peaceful world
