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 Sacred Touchstone

March 24, 2024 Preacher: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

1. Marriage in the resurrection, according to the sacred touchstone (Mark 12:18-27)

2. The double commandment to love, according to the sacred touchstone (Mark 12:28-34)

3. “Who is the Son of David?” according to the sacred touchstone (Mark 12:35-37)
The Doctrine of Scripture:

1. The God of the Bible is a God who acts and talks. He is personal. The Christian’s view of
the Bible is tied to the doctrine of God, who discloses himself in deeds and words.

2. The Bible is simultaneously the product of God’s mind and of human minds.

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s
own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets,
though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1: 20-21).

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in
righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2
Timothy 3:16-17).
