Through the Spirit of Ministry, New City seeks to cultivate an environment that’s conducive to discipling members towards spiritual maturity, ministry excellence, and loving relationships. The purpose of the Spirit of the Ministry is to create a relational atmosphere among leaders, staff, volunteers, and members that reflects a Kingdom culture and emphasizes: skill of hand and integrity of heart (Psalm 78:72).
The Spirit of Integrity
To possess a commitment to biblical truth and honesty, refusing to allow our character to be corrupted or compromised.
"May integrity and uprightness protect me because my hope is in you." (Psalms 25:21)
The Spirit of Excellence
To work as unto the Lord with the highest degree of professionalism, productivity and skill.
"…And every willing man skilled in any craft will help you in all the work." (I Chronicles 28:21)
The Spirit of Servanthood
To demonstrate true humility by seeking, serving, and protecting the well-being of others.
"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms." (1 Peter 4:10)
The Spirit of Communiction
To interact with each other on matters of the ministry in a respectful and timely fashion.
"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (Ephesians 4:29)
The Spirit of Accountability
To love, encourage, and correct each other as we do the work of the ministry, each taking responsibility for decisions and actions that impact the ministry.
"So in Christ we who are many form one body and each member belongs to all the others." (Romans 12:5)
The Spirit of Joy
To have a positive, infectious, and cheerful attitude while performing assigned tasks and responsibilities.
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: – Rejoice!" (Philippians 4:4)
