Pastor Joe Mira
I became a Christian when God spoke to me through a book that I was reading while I was still in college. It led me to the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). That's where I met Jesus. As simple as it may seem, that's how I became a Christian. It changed everything for me: my philosophy, my worldview, and my life's direction. I finished college with a BA in Biblical Studies from Trinity International University--and a wife! Then, I continued my education with a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
So, in June 2008, my wife Daimy and I planted and launched New City Church. It's been as much a blessing to our family as it has been to everyone else. Both our children, Hannah and Sarah, have been baptized! We've seen many become Christians. I've authored 2 books (here and here). I believe that it's all happened for a number of reasons. First, It's our passion to provide an environment that takes both Christians and non-Christians deep into the Scriptures (where all the answers to life's questions are found!). Next, it's our mission to help everyone find and follow Jesus. Finally, it's our vision to see our city changed for God's glory. But ultimately, I believe that God can and will use anyone He desires to, as long as they submit themselves to His sovereign will and plan.
We hope that you'll join us at NCC to discover what God's sovereign will and plan is for you!
Our mission is to help people find and follow Jesus.
