Our vision is to awaken individuals to their God-given possibilities, connect them to God’s process and plan and empower them to live out God’s purpose for their lives.
Our purpose is derived from Ezekiel 37
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” 4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath [a] enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
Much like Ezekiel, we have been given an opportunity to reach a distracted, disconnected and disenfranchised generation. We will empower them to live for Christ. CitiChurch is about awakening people and encouraging them to take that next step.
Our worship is edgy and engaging. Our culture is relational and outwardly focused. Our theology is grounded in the Scriptures. We desire to be a “breath of fresh air” that captures the attention of a city — something out of the ordinary that draws people in, so that they can hear the voice of God.
No matter where someone is spiritually – skeptic, new believer, returning to the faith, growing believer – we want them to be moving forward in their faith-relationship with Jesus Christ. We see discipleship not as a goal to achieve, but as a process of becoming more and more intimate with Jesus Christ.
We want to free people to become awakened to Jesus. We will walk with them as they take their next step in a special relationship with Him. We want to equip, encourage and connect this generation to live life on purpose.
