New City Imphal is a diverse community committed to love our city through the transforming power of the gospel for the glory of God.
We see people from a vast array of backgrounds and ethnicities represented in the city. This diversity sets the city apart from other villages and towns. Nowhere else can we see Revelation 5:9 reflected better than when a multicultural group of image bearers come together to sing praises to the Lamb of God. So NCI is a multi-ethnic, multi-national, multi-generational community that is united by its faith in Jesus Christ.
Love our City
As a city goes, so goes the country and city is God’s invention. That is why we place high importance on reaching the city and influencing the city with the gospel of Christ. He has an original plan, and we’ve done our best to ruin that plan. Now we desire to redeem it. He calls us into the city to love, to preach, to identify, and to bless.
The Transforming Power of the Gospel
We believe that the best kept secret in the Christian church is the gospel. We want to tell and retell the story of the gospel as it is central to all of life and powerful to transform us. Not only does the gospel bring us from a kingdom of Satan into the realm of Jesus Christ, but it continually renews us day after day as we apply it to our lives. It is the only hope for both of us, and our city.
Glory of God
Human’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. The church is God’s “plan A” for making his glory known in making the invisible Kingdom of God a visible reality on earth. God has commissioned the Church to play the most significant role in bringing about this coming of God’s heavenly kingdom to earth. This is why we believe the planting of churches and the multiplication thereof, is the single most God glorifying way to steward the gifts and talents that we’ve been given.
