Our Church

Norbeck Community Church is a Non-Denominational Christian Church with ministries for the whole family and a heart for service to our community.  We were created to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and have dedicated ourselves to do the will of God while diligently seeking those who are lost while nurturing the body of believers.  Norbeck was incorporated as a non-profit religious organization and Christian ministry on April 17, 1984.

Our Mission is found in Matthew 28:19, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

Our Vision is to develop strong leaders; to move members from sitting to serving; to equip new disciples with the foundation of the faith; and to celebrate our collective membership in the family of Christ.
