Church Planting & Missions
Making Jesus famous in Cleveland and around the world.
The Kingdom of God advances primarily through the work of gospel-centered local churches. Because of this, we seek to be a church-planting church. Our desire is to plant a new church in every area of Cleveland that lacks a faithful witness to the saving work of Jesus Christ.
People live, work and play in Ohio City because it’s a neighborhood filled with life. Yet, below the surface, Ohio City faces the struggles, divisions, violence, and fractures common to similar urban neighborhoods.
Where do people see and hear that the life they are searching for is fully found in Christ? City Church is a church in Cleveland here to show and tell people in and around Ohio City the good news of all things new in Christ.
