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.

He Has Risen: Mark's Faithful History of Jesus' Resurrection

May 26, 2024 Preacher: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

Passage: Mark 15:42– 16:8

1. Textual matters: “The Long Ending” of Mark (16:9-20)

2. The burial of Jesus (15:42-47) 

  • The boldness of Joseph of Arimathea
  • The fearfulness of the women

3. “He has risen!” (16:1-8)

*Mark may have three reasons for ending his Gospel
the way that he does:

  • Trust in Jesus’s authoritative word
  • The importance of the cross
  • A call to discipleship
