- Napa Valley: Our ministry focus’ on the needs of a specific community, the Napa Valley. We do reach a larger world-wide community through video and our website resources. However our specific ministries are designed and carried out to meet the needs of our specific community, namely the Napa Valley.

NVCC is part of the Christian Reformed Church: What does that mean?
- Christian: We belong to Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, our Savior, and the Lord of our lives.
- Reformed: We believe that God is sovereign over all, and we seek to serve Him in every part of our daily lives
- Church: We are united by faith to that worldwide community of believers ruled by our Lord Jesus Christ
While we function primarily as a community church, our affiliation with a larger denomination gives us access to resources not otherwise available to a community church, as well as partnership in ministry opportunities that literally span the globe.
- Our Denomination: The Christian Reformed Church traces her history back to Jesus Christ through the historic Protestant Reformation of the 16th Century, and especially Geneva, Switzerland and the work of John Calvin. Her history began in the United States in 1857. By the grace of God, the CRC now reaches across the North American Continent and into many foreign countries as well. People of all races and classes have found its fellowship meaningful, full of vision, and serious about the Scriptures.
- Our Regional Classis: NVCC is part of the Central California Classis of the CRC. This Classis consists of churches from Bakersfield to the Oregon Border.
- Our icon is the cross inside a triangle. The triangle represents the trinity, our belief in the one God we know as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The cross symbolizes our belief in Jesus Christ’s sacrifice as the only means of our salvation.
