  • Baptism Weekend!!

    I am so excited for this weekend!! We have been talking about our baptism celebration for a while now and I can't tell you how amazing it is going to be celebrating with everyone that is making the outward expression of inward change. If you haven't signed up to be baptized yet, go to nlc.tv/baptism-bash and sign up. We provide you a pretty cool t-shirt to get baptized in, and then you can take it home and keep it as a reminder of the incredible decision you have made!! What are you waiting for?!? Click on that link and sign up today!! Let us celebrate with you!!

    We are going to be celebrating in fashion! Baptisms will be held immediately after the 2nd experience over at the Brentwood Rec. center located at 190 rt. 125. approximately 3 miles from the theatre. When leaving the theatre parking lot, take a right onto Rt 125 and go 3.25 miles. The Brentwood Rec. will be on your right hand side and you will see signs for Next Level Church.

    If you are brand new to Next Level Church and want more information on being baptized, go to the FAQ page for baptisms located here. It answers a number of common questions, but if you would still like more info or have more questions, don't hesitate to email me at chris.boardman@nlc.tv. I would love to celebrate with you on this day!


  • Colossians

    "Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. 2 Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth." - Colossians 3:1-2

    Let’s face it. We really are what we think about and desire to have. Our mind is the GPS that points us to our “treasure” and our heart is the engine that carries us to our “prize.” Our mind determines the direction; our heart provides the drive.

    In our new life, transformed by Jesus, it is his Spirit, speaking through our internal GPS, who gives the direction to “continue straight” or “turn right now.” For all those who “have been raised with Christ,” it is his Spirit who empowers us to continue on and complete the journey. When we make the wrong turn, accidentally or on purpose (or accidentally on purpose) the Spirit “recalibrates” the route to get us back on the right path.

    Setting our hearts and minds “on things above” is not some mysterious endeavor maintained by secluded meditation. Paul explains, that this eternal direction and drive is secured by keeping “in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25) Make up your mind to follow hard after Jesus. If you do that, you will always be headed in the right direction for the right reasons.

  • Baptisms

     

     

    Simply put, being baptized is an outward expression of an inward change. The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt decision to follow Jesus. 

    I am pumped about our Baptism celebration happening on Sept 21st. Not only will there be numerous people taking the plunge and making that outward declaration, but we are celebrating with people like there's no tomorrow! Immediately after the 2nd experience, we will be having a BBQ celebration complete with BBQ pulled pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, desserts, lawn games, basketball, football and plenty of great people to do life with. I would be honored to talk with you about baptism! If you email me at chris.boardman@nlc.tv and let me know that you are interested in baptism, I will make sure you get all the information you need. Make sure you invite friends and family, because this is going to be an incredible day!!

  • Be Encouraged

    9 The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. - Chronicles 16:9

    This may be difficult for some to admit, but the bottom line is, all of us enjoy applause: whether on the athletic field, the stage, the classroom, or in the more insignificant events of life. Every one of us enjoys being praised. Our confidence is bolstered when a person of authority, or anyone we respect, supports us and is on our side. Getting that pat on the back, or that word of encouragement, makes us want to do even better. We work harder. We take on our problems with more determination and vigor. We are infused with want to.

    Scripture reminds us that God wants to cheer us on. The Creator of this Universe desires to support us, and support us strongly. He is simply looking for that person who will allow Him to be God. He wants all our hearts…all the time…not just when we think we need Him. He is even looking for us. It is not a question of being found by God; He knows exactly where we are! It is a matter of completely giving our heart to Him. With Jesus Christ on our side, we have it all.
