The New City Catechism was introduced to Andrew and I at the Gospel Coalition Conference in Indianapolis, IN in April. This new Catechism was propelled into print by The Gospel Coalition, Redeemer Presbyterian Church (Pastor: Tim Keller), and Crossway. Catechisms are simply Christian doctrine put into a short, concise question and answer format. They are wonderful tools for memorization and for helping create a theological foundation, whether you are one or ninety! I was raised on the theological wisdom of the Westminster Shorter Catechism and am still SO thankful for having those truths burned into my memory.
Below is a link to songs created from the words of the New City Catechism. Even though they are children’s songs, you as an adult will learn so much if you allow these to become part of your home. If you’re looking for ways to be intentionally discipline your children, especially from a young age, these songs are GREAT ways to have a lifelong impact. Blast these in your home and at their bedtimes instead of lullabies!
< Side Note: Some Catechisms are not Biblically sound. Make sure to research the creators and content before exposing your family to them >
