About this app

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. The New City Catechism mobile app makes it easy to take all of the questions and answers with you wherever you go—for free!

The app pairs each question and answer with a Scripture reading from the ESV, a short prayer, and a devotional commentary written by contemporary pastors, including John Piper, Timothy Keller, Kevin DeYoung, and others.

The app also includes a short version of each answer and kid-friendly songs designed to help children memorize the entire catechism.

Features:

• 52 catechism questions and answers related to God, humanity, sin, salvation, and more
• Devotional commentary on every question and answer written by respected pastors and church leaders
• Short prayers to accompany each question and answer
• A children's mode featuring short versions of each answer and quick access to kid-friendly songs designed to aid memorization
• Related Bible passages drawn from the ESV

The New City Catechism is a joint project of the Gospel Coalition and Crossway.

Where did the "All Songs" button go? Our family used to love going through the the songs to remember the catechism, after having gone through it at Sunday School. Just as others mentioned, we rarely use the app now that we completed the New City Catechism study and can't listen to all the songs without having to select each one. Please bring the feature back.

Please please make the songs have the continuous play again. I used this constantly in the car with my grandchildren as we're in the car a great deal and could sing along together without having to stop and push play after each song. I am too old to do this and drive. Thanks for a wonderful app that was able to use a bit more in the past.

I absolutely love this app! It is user friendly, has a great design, and the songs are amazing. The only problem I have is that the songs sometimes stop in the middle for no reason. I agree it would be useful if it saved your place and had a playlist of the songs, but swiping through the questions and clicking to see the answers is very simple and beneficial for memory practice. Overall, I'm very glad I found this app as an aid for me and my children to memorize the catechism!
