Who we are
New Testament Central City Church is a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching gathering of God's people. Every Sunday and Wednesday, we gather to worship God and to hear a message from Him for each of us. We welcome visitors, no matter where you are in your relationship with God or even if you don't have one.
What We believe
We believe the Church is a divine institution built by God. It is composed of baptized believers who are united together to observe the ordinances, exercise the spiritual, grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and carry out the great commission. Ps 127:1; Matt 16:8; John 12:32; Acts 2:47; Mark 16:15.
We confess our faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and by the power of the Holy Spirit we will order our lives according to the Scriptures. Moreover, we will endeavor to set Christian examples at all times and share our faith in Jesus Christ with others.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who will make disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe that the world has yet to see what God can do with a church that is totally committed to Him. By God's inexhaustible grace, we plan, as a fellowship of believers, to be that church and fulfill the great commission in the process.
We believe that a sound knowledge of biblical doctrine is essential for mature, stable, fruitful Christian living (Eph 4:13). We do not claim to be perfect in our own views. We believe always in learning and growing (II Peter 3:18).
So we are not blown about by every wind of doctrine. Our aim is a humble and firm grasp of the truth we have seen in the scriptures, with a readiness to learn more and more—to the glory of God. We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and His redemptive work in man's salvation through Jesus Christ the Son of God.
We believe there is a distinction between local church membership and membership in the Body of Christ. We believe in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ for salvation. We believe and teach salvation should precede membership in the local church, Acts 2:37; 2:47. We believe in Water Baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

New Testament Central City Church began from the vision of Pastor Malone of New Testament Church. Operation Jericho was a door-to-door effort to reach out in the highest crime area of Milwaukee.
New Testament Central City Church began with four families led by Pastor John Dailey meeting in Phillis Wheatley Elementary School.
God blessed NTCCC with a building located at the intersection of 24th and Center Streets.
Elder Michael Harden takes up the position of Pastor when the Daileys move to Mississippi.
