We believe Jesus came to earth to make it possible for us to have a personal relationship with the God of the universe. This is why City Church exists - to help ordinary people discover and develop a relationship with God through Jesus. We guarantee it is the best decision you could ever make.
The wonderful thing about our relationship with God is that it can be enhanced when expressed as part of a community. Faith in Jesus is not designed to be private - personal yes, but not private - that is why God created the church! We believe that together we can make a real difference in the world.
Everything we do is done for God. As individuals and as His Church, our lives are lived in response to God's love for us. When we're at our lowest, our worst, or in our greatest need, God moves towards us time and time again - not with judgement or anger - but with compassion, generosity and love.
City Church is part of the Elim Pentecostal Movement and what we believe is formed around its Foundational Truths. The Foundational Truths explain our theology and are a statement of faith - they are powerful, non-negotiable and guide all we say and do.
Loving Jesus. Loving Our City. Loving Our Nation.
