We believe Tim Keller is right when he says,
It has never been more important than it is today that the Church ground its people in the truth once delivered to the saints in the Word of God.
We are, therefore, so grateful for The New City Catechism, which “is a modern-day resource aimed at helping children and adults alike learn the core doctrines of the Christian faith via 52 questions and answers.” It is broken up into three sections.
- Section 1 (20 questions): God, Creation and Fall, Law
- Section 2 (15 questions): Christ, Redemption, Grace
- Section 3 (17 questions): Spirit, Restoration, Growing in Grace
You can access it in print, online at newcitycatechism.com, or through the mobile app on iTunes or Google Play. Whether you’re using the print, web, or mobile app version, each question includes the answer in short and long versions (which makes the Catechism great for families to memorize together!), relevant Bible verse(s), and a short prayer. The web and mobile app versions also include comments from a past and present preacher and a song to help with memorization.
We hope you’ll join us as we learn these pivotal doctrines of our faith together in 2018!!!
