Our Vision

Growing in Worship

We believe in the incarnate, crucified, resurrected and ascended Son of God. The whole Bible points to Jesus; and He is the centre point of human history. Our church is centred around Jesus; we worship Him passionately in spirit and in truth, and believe H encounters and changes people today through the Holy Spirit.

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them all as rubbish, in order I may gain Christ

Philippians 3:8

He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

Colossians 1:15

Growing in Community

We want a community which is authentic, not fake. Relational, not religious. Grace-filled, not lawful. Jesus wants His church to be unified, quick to forgive and accepting of difference. We want to build a community where people feel at home and are welcome – church is not just a group of friends, but a spiritual family of brothers and sisters, and we want to love each other as such. This is not restricted within the four walls of a church building, but is something that impacts those around us.

Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honour.

Romans 2:12

Growing in the Gospel

At City Church, we believe the good news about Jesus is a message that the world needs to hear. This message is the focus of our mission – Jesus is passionate about the lost, and are we. We outreach in different ways; for example through small groups, friendships, Alpha courses and outreach events. On the last Sunday of each month we run our Cafe Church service, where we preach the gospel in a meeting aimed at non-Christians.

 

For i am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believe, to the Jew first and also to the Greek

Romans 1:16

 

We believe God wants us to build a large and thriving church that raises up leaders and plants churches. Since we began meeting in 2011, we have planted two other churches:

God First Gothenburg, Sweden and Christ Chruch Blackpool, UK
