New City Catechism

52 Questions and Answers for Our Hearts and Minds – We are using this resource to help teach and reinforce the core doctrines of the Christian faith. Be sure to download the free NCC app.

Question 34 – Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through Christ alone, must we still do good works and obey God’s Word?

Answer – Yes, because Christ, having redeemed us by his blood, also renews us by his Spirit; so that our lives may show love and gratitude to God; so that we may be assured of our faith by the fruits; and so that by our godly behavior others may be won to Christ.
