Week 16 | New City Catechism and Scripture


Every week, our worship bulletin includes a Q&A from the New City Catechism, along with a supporting Bible verse that we invite you to memorize. This week's Q&A, memory verse, and explanatory video are below:

New City Catechism #16

Q. What is sin?
A. Sin is rejecting or ignoring God in the world he created, rebelling against him by living without reference to him, not being or doing what he requires in his law—resulting in our death and the disintegration of all creation.

Scripture Memory Verses - 1 John 3:4

Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.
