I keep encountering an error saying invalid address. Why is this?

const Web3 = require('web3');
const contract = require('truffle-contract');

const MyContract = require('../build/contracts/MyContract.json'

web3 = new Web3.providers.HttpProvider('http://localhost:8545');

var Contract = contract(MyContract);

Contract.setProvider(web3);

Contract.new()
    .then(instance => {
    c = instance;
    return c.getCreator();
})
   .catch(error => {
    console.log(`${error}`);
})

MyContract.json:

In your MyContract.json file address field was empty which means your contract was not deployed properly. Make sure your contract was deployed and the address of the contract was updated in the JSON file.
