New City is hosting the Secret Church 2018 Simulcast. Pastor David Platt was inspired by the underground church around the world. The church would come together in secret for hours upon end to study God's Word together. Platt was impressed by their hunger and desire to learn together, putting themselves at risk for being Christians. Secret Church was started as a way for Christians to come together and learn for an extended period of time about a topic the Bible addresses.

This year's topic is on cults and counterfeit gospels.

The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century.

For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?” Answering these questions will be the aim of Secret Church 18, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels.”

We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
