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.

Jesus: Divine Bridegroom and Lord of the Sabbath

October 22, 2023 Preacher: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

Passage: Mark 2:18– 3:6

BIG PICTURE: Jesus fulfills Old Testament prophecy, but he explodes Jewish expectations, thus leading to his murder on the cross.


Example 1: Jesus claims to be the divine bridegroom of Old Testament scripture (2:18-22)


Example 2: Jesus claims to be Lord of the Sabbath, a prerogative of God alone. (2:23-3:6)
