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.

The Humbled King

July 9, 2017 Preacher: Series: Daniel

Passage: Daniel 4

“The Humbled King”

Daniel 4

Main Point:  God is sovereign, so the people of God can trust him and persevere through persecution until God humbles proud human kings, gives everlasting dominion to the Son of Man, and the saints reign with him.

 Points of Application

  1. God is sovereign, and so he raises and abases whom he wills. None can withstand him.
  2. God is sovereign, and so we must be humble, not prideful. Every virtue or strength we possess we derive from him – so give him glory!
  3. God is sovereign, and so those who walk in pride he is able to humble. This can be judgment, or a loving action on his part.
