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 Cresset Church family would treasure this as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.

question of the week:

Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?


No, every sin is against the sovereignty, holiness, and goodness of God, and against his righteous law, and God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them in his just judgment both in this life, and in the life to come.

Ephesians 5:5-6

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
