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.

God's Beloved, Suffering Son

February 11, 2024 Preacher: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

Passage: Mark 9:1–13

Main Point: the suffering of Jesus is not incompatible with his glory.

Point 1: In the transfiguration, Jesus, the beloved Son, shows he is God (1-3).

Point 2: God the Father’s attestation of his beloved Son shows his salvation-historical supremacy. Jesus supersedes every lawgiver and prophet who has come before, or who comes after (4-7).

Point 3: The longed-for redemption of the Day of the Lord can be purchased only through the suffering of the Son of Man (8-13).
