He meets us where we are.

THE MISSION OF NEW CITY CHURCH
Renewing our city in the real Jesus.
THE GOSPEL CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Jesus' life, death and resurrection, shapes how we see the big and small stuff of life. Jesus is the source of our freedom from the past, power for the present, and hope for the future.
HOSPITALITY IS OUR PURPOSE.
We work to create environments that give people a taste of what God is like. Whether with a friend over coffee, in a worship gathering, or in our homes, we live to display God's heart.
THE NEXT GENERATION IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
Reaching students on the campus of UIUC with the gospel is not an isolated ministry at New City. We mobilize our resources, our people and our prayers for the sake of the next generation.
HONOR IS OUR EXPECTATION.
We believe every human being is made in God's Image, which means everyone has dignity and is worthy of respect. This shapes how we speak to and about all people.
DEVELOPMENT IS OUR PRIORITY.
We make space for people to grow in their God-given gifting. At New City, we aren't using people to get ministry done, we're using ministry to get people done.
SENDING IS OUR SCORECARD.
We are either sending or going on God's renewal mission of making disciples. This leads us to send one another on mission locally, and to plant churches in university cities globally.
NEW CITY WANTS EVERY PERSON TO:
Find Life in the Gospel.
At New City, no one has to be afraid. It’s a place where we can admit that we are more broken and sinful than we can imagine, and find that we are more loved by Jesus than we could ever hope. The gospel creates a safe space where anyone open to God can experience renewal. We’d love for you to get in on it.
Experience Transformation in Community.
“You are not alone” is some of the best news we can hear. And in Jesus, this is eternally true. He gives us a church family to physically express this spiritual reality. We get to experience the transformative power of the gospel with friends.
Make a Difference on Mission.
Our church doesn’t exist for itself, and neither do you. God created you to reflect his glory to the world by making making disciples of the real Jesus. We each do this as we speak the truth of the gospel to those around us, serve one another, and bless our city. Renewal happens as the individuals that make up New City experience the power of the gospel and it propels them outward toward others. Ready to get in the game?
