Christ City Church is a growing six-year-old church plant geographically located in the centre of the city of Vancouver with a vision to establish a network of neighbourhood churches. We are currently in three diverse neighbourhoods in our city with plans to expand.
We are unapologetically centred on Jesus Christ.
We are grounded in the authoritative Scriptures, the culture of this city, and the history of the church.
We gather as a body of believers every Sunday for worship, Word, and sacrament, and we gather in smaller communities as Community Groups throughout the week for ongoing discipleship, that we might be known and in turn know others.
We believe the church is called to God and then sent by God to be on mission. We live out that sent identity through a life of 24/7 worship in the everyday. We believe the gospel informs our vocational life, our family life, and our recreational life, and that there is no part of our lives that is not impacted by the in-breaking reality of the renewal of all things that has begun in the resurrection of Jesus.
Christ City Church is reformed in soteriology, continuationist in pneumatology, missional in ecclesiology, and complementarian in polity.
