A18 Ministries 

At NABC, we love people.  We love people because Christ loves people, and we want to take the message of His love outside our doors every chance we get.  The Great Commission should not be just one thing we do- it should be part of everything we do.  Just like in the verse Acts 1:8, our outreach philosophy is to start right where we are and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, go together to take the Gospel from our small town neighborhood all the way to the nations!  

Mission Statement:

The A18 mission is to grow evangelism through discipleship in our church and share the good news of Christ in our neighborhoods, our nation and throughout the world.


Key Verse:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.  -Acts 1:8
