“A Place Where Love Works”

We stand upon the foundation of the past and use it to launch us into the future that God has planned for all of us. We have gathered together, cast new vision, define our core values, and have charted a course for the future. We have begun to make our DREAMS become bigger than our MEMORIES.

Our History

We were founded in 1916. In 1998 a video was commissioned by Rev. Edward Jones. This video depicts that 75-year history of our church. We hope that you will enjoy looking back to our beginning.

Our Vision

"Love one another…by this everyone will know that you are my disciples – if you love one another." (John 13:34-35)

Biblical Foundation
The Bible is our source for all that we do as a church.

Continuous Spiritual Growth
We create environments for spiritual growth at every level.

Responsive Compassion
It is our responsibility to respond with compassion to those in need.

Authentic and Generational Relationships
This will be a spiritual family that crosses generational gaps and creates “a place where it’s OK to not be OK.

Excellence Honors God
Everything we do in our community and in our church should be done with excellence and care.

BEYOND BORDERS: New City Church Missions Convention

Here at New City Church, we are committed to have our church build a world vision, to push BEYOND THE BORDERS of our church walls and into our community – we have the capacity to have a global impact. We have a part to play to bring the Gospel to place that have not yet heard about Jesus.

Along with Ramstein Air Force Base and Lanstuhl Hospital, it is the largest population of U.S. Personnel outside the United States.

God has called Paul and Lori to reach out and minister to these families and to cultivate a vibrant, family-oriented community for them to experience the love of Jesus.
