Welcome to the former online home of New City Baptist Church!

Our congregation approved a merger with Mount Pleasant Road Baptist Church on January 21, 2024.

Once we receive the green light from the CRA, we will be officially known as Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. For now, we are one church under that name (spiritually), but two charities (legally).

Join us at 10:30am every Sunday and 7:30pm every Thursday at 527 Mt. Pleasant Rd.

Slaves to Righteousness

July 10, 2016 Preacher: Series: Romans

Passage: Romans 6:15– :23

“Slaves to Righteousness”
Romans 6:15–23

Big Picture: In Christ, we are freed from the slavery of sin to become slaves to God. Our greatest freedom is to become slaves to Christ.

Point # 1: We become slaves to whom we obey (15-18)

· Either slaves of sin to death, or slaves of obedience to righteousness

(15-16)
· Through obedience to God's Word, those who were slaves of sin become slaves of righteousness (17-18)

Point # 2 Our motivation for serving God as his obedient slaves

· Serving righteousness produces holiness (19)

· Serving sin produces death (20-21)

· Serving God produces the fruit of holiness, and in the end, eternal life (22)

· Sin pays its servants: the wages are death. But God gives the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (23)
