Why does the Pastor feel like catechisms are important?
First, because I am obedient to my call to teach the church (2 Timothy 4:2). The catechisms teach us Christian doctrine and application. Second, because I honor the tried and true methods of the Puritans. They are the “California Redwoods”, the spiritual giants of the Christian faith. Catechism, questions and answers regarding Christian doctrine, was the preferred method for spiritually building up the people of God. Catechism is not Catholic terminology, but a Christian method to guard against false teaching.
The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at helping children and adults alike learn the core doctrines of the Christian faith via 52 questions and answers.
