About NBCC: 

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, NBCC is uniquely diverse in age and stage, culture and class. We believe that the diversity of our church reflects the truth that God really does love all people. We are fully committed to building a community shaped by a strong fidelity to the truths of Scripture, while also being a safe place where people who are in different places on their journey with Jesus can explore, ask questions, and grow in their relationship with God.

Our vision emphasizes 4 key elements:

  1. To reach people who feel far from God, which means we meet people where they are at and engage the world with hospitality and generosity;

  2. To make disciples, which means we help people to live like Jesus did – with the same God-given purpose, and an extraordinary love and grace for others that can truly change the world;

  3. To build families, which means we care about relationships and we help people to thrive by taking intimacy, honesty, and forgiveness seriously within their own families and the church as a family;

  4. To transform communities, which means we serve our neighbors and our community to bring greater justice, freedom, and joy.

We are a casual, come‐as‐you‐are kind of church, and everyone is welcome.
