Please read the following beliefs of our church and answer the question that follows.
The Holy Bible
The Holy Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God and, as such, is totally reliable and relevant for our lives today. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26)
The Trinity
There is one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy. 1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11
Sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:23
Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ, both 100% God and 100% man, is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. (John 1:1,14; John 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy 2:5; Matthew 1:18,23-25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35)
In order to receive forgiveness and 'new birth,' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives. (Galatians 2:16; Galatians 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22; Acts 2:21; Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9; Ephesians 2:8-9)
In order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to yield to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3; Romans 8:29; Romans 12:1-2; Hebrews 2:11)
God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives—to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church, and serve the community in which we live. (Acts 20:24; Philippians 3:13-14; 1 Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 4:11, 13-14)
Heaven & Hell
Our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:3,12,20; Matthew 6:20; Matthew 19:21; Matthew 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4; Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11; Revelation 20:12-15; Revelation 21:8)
Second Coming of the Messiah
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised. (Matthew 24:30; Matthew 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)
Water Baptism
Water baptism is instructed by the Word of God. Every new convert is to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38)
The Lord's Supper is a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross. (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; Acts 10:47-48; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-25)

Audition Tips

  • Please be fully prepared for your audition, knowing your parts on all four required songs (above)

  • We play from chord charts, rarely from scored music

  • We are looking to know that you can learn your part from listening to a recording

  • Don’t overplay – we don’t need you to shred, drum solo, or slap bass

  • Be able to receive direction/criticism, even if you don’t agree with the suggestion

Electric & Acoustic Guitar

  • Pay attention to your tone and pedals – delay and overdrive – making sure that they line up appropriately with the musical style of NLC. We don't use effects like chorus or flange

  • Stick to lead or rhythm for the entire song – don't alternate

  • Know how to use a capo

  • Pay attention to strumming/picking patterns.


  • Lock in with the drummer, paying attention to kick-snare pattern

  • We will look to see that you know your patterns/parts even though you are auditioning without a drummer


  • Lock in with the bassist, paying attention to kick-snare pattern

  • We will look to see that you know your patterns, even if you are auditioning without a bassist

  • You will play to a click track metronome


  • Familiarize yourself with sounds other than piano (e.g., pad, organ, Rhodes, etc.)

  • Think simple. Avoid overplaying, especially with the left hand

  • Some songs have specific parts – know these parts rather than just chording

Additional Instruments

  • Whereas we normally play with the above listed instrumentation, on occasion, we incorporate additional instruments, usually for special events/services

  • Play like part of the group – beware of overplaying


  • In your audition, you will be expected to sing the lead vocal and harmony parts, staying on your respective part. If you are “hearing” a part that significantly varies from how we would sing it, we will demonstrate an altered part and ask you to modify. You will see that there are vocal tutorials for the songs, but please know lead melody and harmony parts for the entirety of each song

  • Pay attention to timing and style of vocal movements on the recordings

  • Keep vibrato to a minimum

  • You will be auditioning to be a part of the ensemble

We believe that loving relationships should permeate every area of church life.

It is important to note that the worship team does not function like a weekly life group since there is a consistent rotation of people and variation in how often team members serve.  So if NLC Worship becomes a place where you serve, we want to encourage you to build relationships within the team that extend beyond worship services.  We also want to encourage involvement in life groups where you can have consistent community and build life-giving friendships!
