We are a multi-generational church located in north-east Winnipeg who are passionate about hosting gatherings that connect people with Jesus. Our Sunday service is approximately an hour long and always includes worship through music as well as applicable teaching from the Bible. We do our best to create a relaxed and casual environment that is accessible to everyone. Wired, a special environment just for kids is available during the message each Sunday except on long weekends.
As a church, NKMB is a biblical community on a journey toward God and each of the three parts of our mission is necessary to move us along this journey. We live that mission out by emphasizing the following core values:
JESUS - the Bible points us to Jesus and in return we point everything we do back to him.
GOSPEL - for forgiveness, life change and joy, we depend on what God has done for us and not what we have done for God.
BIBLE - we teach the Bible as it is for people as they are.
COMMUNITY - because of Jesus, we are part of an extended family and as a family we help each other out in life, in faith, in joy and in sorrow.
MISSION - Jesus calls us to love people not just with words but with our actions.
Whether you've gone to church your whole life or are just stepping in for the first time, we want to welcome you on this journey with us.
Knowing that we still have a long way to go to become like Jesus, and need a lot of God’s grace and forgiveness along the way, we are a Church striving to become people who are known to be…
Loving. Forgiving. Faithful. Humble.
Generous. Honest. Truthful. Biblical.
We celebrate the grace and love of God that is revealed in Jesus Christ. “God proves His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
As a Mennonite Brethren denomination, we hold to this CONFESSION OF FAITH
