“Live pure, speak truth, right wrong, worship the King.”
- NCS Naples is really a “place for grace” where men experience real care for each other – and where that experience becomes the motivation to change the way they live.
- NCS Naples is about men enjoying true friendship in an environment of trust and acceptance. It is a community of brothers.
- NCS Naples is a place that honors Jesus and seeks genuine fellowship with Him.
- NCS Naples succeeds only when these authentic friendships allow men to discover that they are valued for who they are, not for what they do.
- NCS Naples has learned that these authentic relationships grow best when the common strength of all the members becomes a platform for acts of grace in the community.
- NCS Naples is not an inwardly-focused, self-help group – although many men find real healing within the NCS Naples framework – but NCS Naples does encourage personal transformation in authentic community.
- NCS Naples is not focused on evangelism. It is focused on helping each other experience personal transformation through our relationships with each other and with Jesus and helping each other become the husbands, father and leaders God intended us to be. All of this begins within the group, but it soon spills over into the community where we live and work.
- NCS Naples is simply living the second great commandment as ordinary men in ordinary life with an extraordinary purpose. To that end, NCS Naples expects men to have a positive impact on their families, their communities, the marketplace and the world.
- NCS Naples believes in acting out the words of Jesus, “I no longer call you servants. I call you friends.”
All of this is summarized in our motto (loosely borrowed from Lancelot), “Live pure, speak truth, right wrong, worship the King,” and in our battle-cry (borrowed from Maximus), “As one!”
Live pure: We encourage and help each other to experience personal healing and transformation with Jesus and then act accordingly.
Speak truth: We encourage transparent friendships where we are open about ourselves and our weakness and are not afraid to speak truth to our friends to help them heal and become what God meant them to be.
Right wrong: We impact our families, communities, the marketplace and the world by doing what is right and standing openly against wrongs, even at risk to ourselves.
Worship the King: Everything we do honors and glorifies the name of Jesus.
As One: Alone, we will easily be picked off. We can face anything in community with each other and Jesus.
