“We exist to CONNECT a people, IGNITE a city, and LIGHT the world for the Glory of God.”
CONNECT A PEOPLE
The church is the family of God and as such our number one call is to help connect people to Him and be added to His family. We want to connect to God in His presence through worship, connect to His Word through Christ-centered preaching and instruction, and connect to His people through our weekly worship gatherings, City Groups, and service opportunities.
IGNITE A CITY
To ignite is to awaken…come alive…flip the switch! God has designed every person, regardless of ethnicity, age, or status to be a light and shine in dark places. Connecting to God is a first step, but actually “flipping the switch” and activating the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives is where transformation begins in our lives and the city around us. We believe this is cultivated through discipleship and leadership development; teaching people to follow Jesus and grow in their purpose and calling.
LIGHT THE WORLD
As we connect to God and are awakened to His truth, power, and mission, we are commissioned to be light and shine! One of the ways we do that at City of Lights is through service and outreach. Whether serving on one of our SHINE teams, one of our community partnerships, or shining in our home, neighborhood, cubicle, or campus…we are called to reveal the light and life of Jesus
