New City Church exists to strategically and intentionally engage the communities in Jefferson County with the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to multiply disciples and plant churches.
We are convinced that God has called us to plant a church that will continue to plant churches. Thus, we view the entire city as part of both our long and short-term strategies. Believing that only the gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to change individuals, families, and communities, we believe that “New City Church” is the name that best describes our goal. We begin with the end in mind!
We believe effective evangelism requires long-term relational investments in unreached people. We believe that evangelistic efforts and events are only the beginning of our gospel engagement with unbelievers. We are committed to aggressive follow-up with any and all evangelistic encounters. Mercy ministry and outreach events will provide a beachhead into the community and prepare the way for long-term and meaningful gospel-centered ministry.
The gospel is the good news that God is reconciling sinners to himself through the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The ultimate goal of New City Church is not simply to increase membership. We are convinced that we must equip every believer to know how to study the Bible, to share the gospel, and to teach others all they have learned.
