Who Are We?
We are people of grace, who live by faith, for the glory of God
The grace of God is the foundation of who we are and what we do. It is because of His grace that we respond in faith and live by faith. All that we do by faith is ultimately for the glory of God.
That the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives
In one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
That sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives
That the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He 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.
That in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent for our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives
That in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
In the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly for fellowship, prayer, and for the ‘breaking of bread’
That God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church, and serve the community in which we live
That God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively
That our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ
That the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised
BELONG | BELIEVE | BECOME
We want New City Church to be a place where people from all backgrounds belong, and then get to a place to believe in the message of Jesus Christ, so that they become the people God has called them to be.
