We Have a Dream
We see a church filled with fervent followers of Jesus Christ whose hearts are ablaze with love for God, love for one another and love for a needy world.
We see a church where the Great Commission is the first priority. People share their faith, the gospel is preached, churches are planted and nations are impacted.
We see a church of great compassion where the needy and hurting are drawn to find hope and answers to their problems. People are healed, set free and made whole.
We see a church of friendly, loving people who ensure that each person feels accepted, valued and has a sense of belonging.
We see a church where the very atmosphere is charged with fervent prayer, joyful praise, intimate worship and a spirit of faith and expectancy.
We see a church filled with the Holy Spirit, demonstrating his fruit, moving in his gifts and flowing in his power.
We see a church where God's Word is taught in such a way that people align their values, attitudes and lifestyle to God's kingdom.
The church that we see is so big that people can't ignore it and growing so fast that buildings can't contain it, yet it is so small that each person feels a vital part of it - connected together in a network of hundreds of small groups across the city for care, discipleship, ministry and outreach.
We see a church with such passionate devotion, radical conviction and total commitment to the cause of Jesus Christ that the very gates of hell can't stop it!
This is the church that we see … this could be our church, CityLife Church.
