About Nenana Bible Church:

Church Profile Nenana Bible Church began as a mission church in the 1950’s under the oversight of Arctic Missions, Inc. NBC was incorporated as a non-profit religious organization in 1980 and became a self-governing, independent church at that time. Our Statement of Faith can be found here: Click on “What We Believe”. We conduct traditional worship services with expository preaching of the Word and congregational singing of the great hymns of the faith. One of the men regularly serves as song leader. We use the King James Version of the Bible. At this time, one of our young ladies provides piano accompaniment at regular services. Several of the young people provide us with special music from time to time. Other than the pastor, there are no paid staff. In recent months, it has become more difficult for us to provide full support for a full-time pastor. We believe with a minimal increase in membership (perhaps two or three families) that this would no longer be a problem. We do not have a parsonage. We do not have any debt. We provide support for one indigenous church planting pastor in the CIS (former USSR) through Slavic Gospel Association. Currently our congregation consists of: two families (4 adults) with a total of six children ranging in ages 10 – 20; two older couples (one of whom are founding members) and several other adults in regular attendance on Sunday mornings. The level of commitment and unity within the membership is good. Although Nenana has a substantial population of Native (Athabascan) Alaskans, we currently do not have any Native families in our congregation. Our outreach to the community has mostly consisted of personal relationship building, occasional benevolence assistance, literature distribution at Christmas, and prayer. Our former pastor was with us for twenty-seven years and was, for many of us, the only pastor we have sat under. While his presence is greatly missed, we are excited to see what the Lord has planned for us at Nenana Bible Church. We are eagerly seeking to prepare ourselves for whatever it may be.

Job Qualifications:

We are seeking the man of God whom the Lord has called to be the Pastor at Nenana Bible Church in Nenana, Alaska. This man shall be a man who gives evidence of the call of God to the ministry of the gospel and of adherence to the Scriptural principles governing church leadership. He shall be recognized as the God-appointed leader of the congregation. Any man to be considered as a candidate for this pastorate shall have read our constitution and shall have signified in writing his unreserved agreement with its provisions and respect for the nondenominational position of this Church. He will be in agreement with this church's beliefs regarding tongues and healing: We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing, were temporary. Speaking in tongues was never the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit. Ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection, although God frequently chooses to answer the prayers of believers for physical healing. (1 Cor. 1:22; 13:8; 14:21-22) 1 Timothy 3:1-13 Titus 1:5-9
