New City.

The Bible begins with a garden (Gen. 1-3), but it ends with a city (Rev. 21). In the midst of the cities of the world, God plants his own city - the local church: an outpost of heavenly citizens (Phil. 3.20), united by 'one Lord, one faith, and one baptism' (Eph. 4.5), gathering for worship and then sent out in mission. That mission is to disciple the nations (Mt. 28.18-20). The church is God's city, planted in the midst of the cities of the world, working to renew them.

All of them - including South Bend. 

High Gospel. Deep Church.

At New City Pres, you'll encounter a high view of the gospel and a deep view of the church. The gospel isn’t just something we believe (though it’s definitely that!) but then move beyond. It’s God’s power for salvation to those who believe. It’s how Jesus reshapes and reorders and renews our loves and our lives from top to bottom.

The church isn't anything less than the adopted family of God the Father (1 John 3.1), the body of His Son Jesus (1 Cor. 12), which is made alive by the Spirit (1 Cor. 12). If you want Jesus, connection to the local church isn't an optional extra. The church is where you'll find Him. 

And the name of the city from that time on shall be, The Lord Is There. Ezk. 48.35

Come Visit

The best way to explore New City is to visit our gathered worship service on Sundays at 10:00am. Guests are especially welcomed to attend our 45 minute, masked and socially-distanced service. God promises to meet us there, feed us with His Word and at His Table, fill us with His Spirit, and empower us to love and serve our neighbors, the city, and the rest of the world.

At New City, We Celebrate.

In any community, there are people living as orphans, cut off from others and feeling alone. But in the gospel, the Father adopts us into his family – a new family. Humanity renewed and remade by the blood and through the Spirit of Jesus. Perhaps more than anything else, the city needs healthy families, and that’s just what Christ plants there when he plants the church. At New City, we celebrate that adopting love. 

We Build.

We're building a deep church. Christ is our Prophet, Priest and King, and Christ shapes His church in His own likeness. A deep church is one that looks like and is shaped by Him.

We Serve.

The church is both a source and locus of mission. We train and equip men and women to take the Gospel in word and deed to the world, starting in our local neighborhoods and city. Our weekly services are also places where the gospel is spread as non-Christians are present and participate in our corporate worship. We serve our neighborhoods, our city, and our world. 

Our Mission

New City strives to be a cross-cultural church that is both committed to the city of South Bend and engages the local university communities.
