We’re an inclusive, come-as-you-are church in LA

New City Church of Los Angeles is a multi-ethnic, multi-socioeconomic Christian church in Los Angeles. We have two parishes, one in Downtown and one in the San Fernando Valley. We are a diverse and inclusive community seeking to be like Jesus.

Our congregation is made up of roughly equal numbers of people of African descent, people of European decent, people of Asian descent, and people of Hispanic descent. Many of the regular attenders of our Downtown parish are residents of Skid Row. We are families, singles, and kids, Democrats and Republicans and Independents, gay and straight, poor and rich.

At New City, we believe in not judging anyone because we know that we ourselves are more flawed and broken than we know—yet more loved and accepted by God through Jesus than we ever thought possible! So, come as you are.

We would love to have you join us this Sunday!

Are we a liberal or a conservative church?

We are neither a conservative church nor a liberal church. The gospel doesn’t fit into those categories. Christianity isn’t about adhering to a list of ‘dos and don’ts.’ We acknowledge that we are all in a process of formation, we are sinners who are loved by God and are being transformed by God’s grace. Therefore, we are non-judgmental.

We’re a gospel-centered church

This means we place our trust in the God’s work of renewing all things by faith in Christ. Through Jesus and the Spirit, God has provided the sufficient way of salvation for all who will surrender themselves to God. Because of God’s grace, we live as children of God, unconditionally accepted and loved, and not as those who live in fear. This is at the heart of who we are.

2017 Family Profile

Every few years, we survey the congregation to get vital information about who we are as a church. This information is important to us, so that we can celebrate who God has brought together as family and so that we can make more informed decisions loving one another well. So, check out some demographic information about us (PDF, 1.3 MB)
