Our Confessional Statement
New City's Confessional Statement rests upon the foundation of Holy Scripture, the illumination handed down to us through the early church creeds, the wisdom of the historic Reformed Confessions, and the accountability of our Evangelical contemporaries. This document is a summary of "big" theological/biblical doctrines drawn from Scripture that New City agrees with and adheres to.
Three Creeds adopted by the worldwide church centuries ago summarize the most important tenets of the faith we share with our brothers and sisters around the world.
The Apostles' Creed
This creed is called the Apostles' Creed not because it was produced by the apostles themselves but because it contains a brief summary of their teachings.
This creed consists of two parts, the first setting forth the orthodox doctrine of the trinity, and the second dealing chiefly with the incarnation and the two-natures doctrine.
The Nicene Creed, also called the Nicaeno-Constantinopolitan Creed, is a statement of the orthodox faith of the early Christian church in opposition to certain heresies.
Three historic Reformed Confessions summarize the Christian faith handed down to us from the apostles of Scripture. These statements of faith, which haven been agreed upon by most Reformed Christians past and present, are designed to create a biblically grounded doctrinal and confessional center for our churches.
The Belgic Confession, written in 1561, takes pains to point out the continuity of Reformed belief with that of the ancient Christian creeds.
Canons of Dort
The Canons of Dort is a finely-tuned piece of theological writing, laying out a biblical, Reformed perspective on matters central to Christian life and experience.
The Heidelberg Catechism, written in 1563, is a remarkably warm-hearted and personalized confession of faith.
