New to NC3?

We’re glad you’ve stopped by! To help you get acquainted with who we are and make you feel right at home, check out these Frequently Asked Questions.

1. What are church services like at NCCC?

Our weekend services includes a time of worship, a few announcements, an offering and a message. During our evening services, we also have a brief “coffee break” time when you can meet the person sitting next to you or greet your friend across the room.

Before and after services, we like to hang out. Join us on the piazza for a cup of coffee or to get more information about ministries and upcoming events.

We are a pretty casual bunch. Attire ranges from business casual to fresh-off-the-beach. Come as you are! (Although we do prefer no narrow heeled shoes in the main sanctuary to help us care for the wood floor.)
Got a question? Grab one our “Ask Me” team members on the weekends or visit Guest Central (in the lobby during evening services and on the piazza Sunday mornings).

Need Prayer? Visit one of our “Prayer Team” members in front of the stage after every service.

2. How do I belong at NCCC?

We consider biblical membership to be more of an organic connectedness than a formal process or piece of paper. Therefore, the way we “belong” to one another is through relationships (connecting), serving each other, and being financially responsible by giving. Learn more about CONNECTING, SERVING, and GIVING.

3. What do you offer for my kids?

All children and youth have a place to belong at NCCC. During services on Saturday PM and Sunday AM our amazing teams run fun and engaging programs for every age group from infants through high school. (Sunday PM childcare is provided for children ages 5 and under only.) Plus, there are great midweek gatherings for each age group to explore. For more info on midweek or weekend programs, visit the pages for Children’s Ministry, 4th-6th Grade, Jr. High and High School.

7. What is a Calvary Chapel?

Calvary Chapel is a loose affiliation of churches that share a common emphasis on verse-by-verse expository teaching, evangelism, and the grace of God. Each Calvary Chapel is self-governing and financially independent. Here at North Coast Calvary Chapel we are governed by a Board of Directors. They are responsible for setting and approving the church’s budgets and policies.

I’m a New Believer

The following are some great next steps for new believers:


Check out Trust, a great opportunity for new and uncertain believers to become convinced of the reality of Christ and the truth of God’s promises in a one-on-one mentorship. [for MEN][for WOMEN]


At NCCC, we practice baptism by immersion as it provides a clearer picture of our new life in Christ (Romans 6:3-4). Baptism is not a means of salvation but an act of obedience (Matthew 28:19-20; I John 2:3) in identifying your life as a believer (Acts 18:8) in Christ. LEARN MORE.

Newcomers’ Night

These quarterly events are a great way to get acquainted with NCCC and what we believe. You’ll hear from our Lead Pastor, Mark Foreman, about our church’s values and ministries and meet others exploring NCCC over coffee and great desserts. LEARN MORE.
