Description of Organization

Planted in 1994 with a cross-cultural vision and mission, New City Fellowship has grown from 12 family units meeting in the upstairs area of a music store to over 200 communing members meeting regularly in their own building today.  God has been faithful over all these years as He has grown us and shaped us into who we are today as a local body of His people, reaching out to our community in evangelism and reaching in among our members in discipleship.

As first expressed at its founding 25 years ago, New City Fellowship remains faithful to its call to see all peoples and communities reconciled to God and to one another through Jesus Christ, as laid out in our Vision, Mission, and Values.  We are committed to these in all ministry areas and seeking to remain faithful to the call of God to our congregation.  As we look for a pastoral intern to lead our youth and children’s ministries, we hope to find someone who is committed to these values and will seek to implement them in these ministries as we seek to raise the next generation.

Our Vision

Ambassadors of Reconciliation for Jesus Christ to All Ethnicities

Our Mission

​As followers of Jesus Christ, New City Fellowship of Fredericksburg is a worshipping family intentionally seeking to make disciples from every nation, tribe, people, and language reflecting the grace, mercy and justice of God in our communities, our nation and our world.
