We are imperfect people, being courageous, believing Jesus has the power to make all things new.
We believe that Jesus restores what’s broken. We have confidence in His power to restore the most desperate situations.
We have been given a new identity. We find our significance not in what we do, but we find our significance in what Jesus has done.
We are a family. We treat others like family.
We will not pretend that we have it all together. We are imperfect people.
We will be known for being the good news to our city. We love our city and are committed to making it a better place.
We will be radically generous. Our generosity is a reaction to Jesus’ radically generous gift.
We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for Jesus and the world he loves.
We are sent to love the people Jesus loves. We will share our lives with others.
We will build up leaders, churches and communities. By sending out new leaders, new community groups, and new churches, we will spread the good news with our city and beyond.
We will pray faith-filled, big-thinking prayers. We will not insult God by putting limits on what we believe He can do.
what we believe
New City Christian Church is a non-denominational church. We believe in the ancient Christianity established by Jesus and the Apostles. We desire to live the Christian faith as described in the Bible. Modern Christianity has lived with the benefits of the ancient creeds for centuries. This creed describes orthodox Christianity in a simple and understandable way.
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy [world-wide]* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
*The Apostles Creed commonly uses the word “catholic” here which is an adjective meaning "all-encompassing."
