New City Catechism
Who is God? What is God? How do we know? Why does it matter? Having a true understanding of God from Scripture means having a true theology that is unshaken by the world around us and leads us to a place of truly knowing and loving God. This resource can help you (and your family) develop a solid, biblical understanding of God. It's a series of questions & answers for your whole family to gain a perfect balance of biblical theology, practical ethics, and spiritual experience. You can access this resource online for free at www.newcitycatechism.com. There is also an iPad app available.

Tools for Developing DNA:

Click here to view and search the various reading plans. What plan are you using?
