The New City Catechism
Throughout the history of the church, Christians have used catechisms - collections of questions and answers designed for memorization and recitation - to teach others the core doctrines of the faith. The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at reintroducing this ancient method of teaching to Christians today.
Each week we will lay out one question and answer related to God, human nature, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit and more. Whether used devotionally, recited orally, or memorized over the course of a year, our hope is that the LifeSpring Church family would treasure this as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
What is faith in Jesus Christ?
Faith in Jesus Christ is acknowledging the truth of everything that God has revealed in his Word, trusting in him, and also receiving and resting on him alone for salvation as he is offered to us in the gospel.
