A Practical Tool for Your Faith
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.
This practical resource features 52 questions and answers 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, families, churches, small groups, and Christian schools will treasure this as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.
Available in a Variety of Formats and Languages
In addition to a standalone book, a 52-week devotional, a low-cost children’s booklet, and a brand-new children’s curriculum, The New City Catechism is available as a free mobile app for Android, iPhone, and iPad devices and free online at NewCityCatechism.com.
The online version of The New City Catechism features the full text of the 52 questions and answers in 14 languages, including:
