Like a master painter stepping away from the canvas to gaze on his masterpiece, God finished creating the universe, paused, and declared that His creation was “good.” Indeed, everything that is good and beautiful in the universe is so because it reflects the beauty of the Creator in some small way. The arts are essential to our well-being because they express our heart’s deep-seated longing to connect with the Master Artist by whom & for whom we were created. Worship is the natural response of a heart that has encountered the awe-inspiring God of beauty. Indeed, worship and the arts go hand-in-hand because the arts allow us to express and respond to the greatness of God at a deep, emotional, and visceral level.
At New City, we are passionate about worshiping God and fostering the arts and the artists of our city. Click on one of the links above in order to find out how we seek to do this & how you can get involved!
