City Church exists to enjoy and reveal the greatness of God – Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
Because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we are a family of disciple-makers.
There are 3 “Gospel Identities” that we prioritize at City Church that we get from the Trinity: we are sons and daughters of God the Father (new family), we are disciples of Jesus (“Come, follow me”), and we are “makers” empowered by the Holy Spirit (sent as missionaries/witnesses).
Multiply families of disciple-makers who are characterized by faith, hope and love in the Gospel.
Now these 3 remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Our 3 core values are Faith, Hope, and Love in the Gospel. The Gospel (God’s redemption and reconciliation of all of creation to Himself through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ) is the core distinctive of our faith as Christians, our hope is the coming Kingdom of God (Rev. 20-21), and the everyday mission of our lives is to demonstrate and declare the Gospel.
We believe the reason Paul says that love is the greatest is because our faith will eventually become sight, and our hope of the Kingdom will be realized, but our love for God and for each other will last forever.
Plant church-planting churches in cities of great influence and great need.
