JOIN US THIS SUNDAY
Each week we gather as a church family to connect with God and connect with others. These gatherings feature quality, contemporary music, Biblically center and applicable teachings and opportunities to connect with our neighbors. Gatherings are available in both English and Korean. There are also great activities and learning environments provided for children birth - 10 years old. More info below..
SUNDAYS @NEW CTIY
11:00 am / ENGLISH Worship Children’s Activities (5th Floor)
12:30 pm / KOREAN Worship
Meeting at HUNTERS POINT SCHOOL 1-50 51st Ave., LIC (Enter on 51st. Ave. between Center Blvd. & 2nd St.)
Throughout the month of August we will look at how to avoid some the pitfalls of a misguided faith. In Matthew 23 Jesus points out many of these pitfalls as he challenges the religious leaders at the time to stop worrying about outward appearances and spiritual practices and instead focus on internal transformation and authentic living. This series will challenge how we follow Christ.
Every week we offer age appropriate, Biblically centered activities and teaching in a fun and exciting environment. We have an amazing group of trained and screened adults that love being around children and look forward to serving your family by providing a safe and secure environment. We ask all parents to come to the 5th floor to sign their children in and out.
CONNECT BEYOND SUNDAY
We believe that church is much more than just a gathering once a week. At New City Church we focus on getting people in to meaningful relationships through Bible study, service and fellowship. Below you will find the latest information about these areas.
GROW IN KNOWLEDGE
One of the ways we engage beyond Sundays is to provide opportunities for people in our community to connect over the study of Scripture. We have three distinct environments that allow people of all faith stages to learn and grow.
SERVE FOR IMPACT
Relationships are often formed with others as we serve together out of our common passions and giftedness. We have opportunities to serve within our church body as well as chances to serve our local, national and global communities..
CONNECT IN ACTIVITY
Connecting with one another in casual low key environments is often one of the best places to find new friendship and invest in existing ones. We have regular planned events that will give you opportunities to have fun and meet new people.

OUR VISION AND VALUES
LOVING GOD / LOVING OTHER
The focus of Christianity isn’t building buildings or growing large mega churches. The focus of Christianity isn’t leveraging members to exert political power. The focus isn’t making statements of condemnation to individuals that don’t subscribe to our same belief system.
The focus of following Christ is LOVING GOD, and LOVING OTHERS. This is stated all the way back in of the first books of the Bible, Deuteronomy. This command is found in the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Paul in the vast majority of his letters reinforces this teaching. If you want to follow Christ, you must love God, love others.At New City Church we have one focus that we try to build everything we do around and that is to:
- LOVE GOD through worship and obedience
- LOVE OTHERS through acceptance and sacrifice
PLEASURE / PEACE / MEANING / HOPE
As we love God and love others something amazing happens in our lives. Through the outflowing of love toward others, we begin to experience the full blessings of God in our lives. Circumstances stop defining our outlook and even in the midst of great trials we can experience true pleasure, peace, meaning and hope.
Every human is trying to satisfy the each of these desires. We long for pleasure, we strive for peace, we pursue meaning and we chase after hope. But God pours out all of these on us as we simply love him and love others. At New City Church we elevate the belief that the Christian life should be centered around:
- Embracing PLEASURE
- Pursuing PEACE
- Discovering MEANING
- Choosing HOPE
GUILT / INDOCTRINATION / INVASION / CONDEMNATION
Over the years religions have become experts in using guilt to try to indoctrinate us into a certain types of behavior. They invade our lives, trying to overtake every aspect of who we are. These are actually the enemies of pleasure, peace, meaning and hope, which means they are the enemy of God.
At New City Church we encourage everyone to take off the chains of religious dogma and begin to live in freedom by refusing to embrace the practices of:
- Motivation with GUILT
- Steps of INDOCTRINATION
- Pressure of INVASION
- Shame of CONDEMNATION
ASK / JOIN / SERVE / GROW
You may say, I’ve been following Jesus for a long time, I try to love him and love others. But I’m not experiencing pleasure, peace, meaning and hope. Why not? Maybe it’s because you have chosen not to participate. We have been trained to think that the major role of a Christ follower is to show up once a week, hear a sermon and give some money. That isn’t participating that is spectating.
Participating isn’t just listening or showing up. It isn't giving money or doing tasks. Instead we believe to participate you must:
- ASK questions for honest dialogue .
- JOIN your life with others for community
- SERVE out of your gifts instead of guilt
- GROW through discipleship and accountability
