Core Values

DREAM with our Community:

Diversity // Relational // Empowerment // Authenticity // Missional

  • Diversity

    Understanding that all people are created in the image of God, we desire to reflect this reality as a diverse community in which all people, regardless of race, economic standing, or background, are welcomed and embraced.  

  • Relational

    Contrary to the master-servant dynamic so prevalent within the cultural power structures of his day, Jesus referred to his disciples as friends while calling us to address God as "Abba".  Following after the pattern of Jesus and his followers, we seek to cultivate a culture of personal relationship over against the corporate, superficial, and pragmatic influences of our day.

  • Empowerment

    At New City Church, we believe that every person has a vital role to play within the ministry and mission of the church.  Taking seriously the priesthood of all believers, we seek to encourage, empower and equip every person to live out and utilize the unique gifting they’ve been given through the Holy Spirit.  

  • Authenticity

    We believe that God is in the process of restoring us into that which we were ultimately created to be.  As flawed, broken, and imperfect people in need of God’s continual grace, we are not in the business of pretending to be better than we are.  Rather, at New City Church, we desire to be an open, honest, and authentic community in which every person is humbly embraced and supported wherever they are on their growth journey.

  • Mission

    As followers of Jesus, we believe that we are called to the mission of making true disciples of all nations.  Believing that we as the church exist for this very mission, we see seek to embody, proclaim, and demonstrate the gospel in all that we do. 

  • Community

    Through the gospel, we are not only redeemed from sin and death but brought into the very family of God.  We believe that it is within community that we enjoy God more fully, love others more faithfully, and shine more brightly for the glory of the gospel.  At New City Church, community is where life happens and where we openly invite you into.
