Beliefs and Affiliation
While we are certainly a young church, we are not new in our beliefs and practices. We wholeheartedly embrace the historic Christian faith as it is revealed in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and expressed in the ancient creeds (e.g., the Apostles’ and Nicene creeds). We are also committed to the rich heritage of the Protestant Reformation with its emphasis on God’s sovereignty and grace. Helpful summaries of these views can be found in documents such as the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Heidelberg Catechism. In addition to these historical ties, New City is connected to the church regionally and nationally as well. Nationally, we are a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). This connection provides us with partnership in mission, accountability, and support. We live out our ties regionally through our membership in the Great Lakes Presbytery, which includes churches throughout Michigan and northern Indiana.
