CORE VALUES

At City Life, we are passionate about making Jesus known. This is accomplished by living out our four core values.




LEGACY

We value, equip and fuel the potential of the next generation.







LEGACY

We have a great responsibility to those who are younger than us. We recognize that there is great potential in the next generation with opportunity for both good and evil. We choose to bring out the good by discipling, loving and relating to those who follow us.




INFLUENCE

We measure our success by marketplace and community impact.







INFLUENCE

We know that only the presence of God can redeem the culture, so we are active and present within the culture, being salt and light wherever we go. We choose to seek out common ground with others in the marketplace and community and be known for what we are for rather than what we are against. We recognize that loving our city means loving the people in it.





INTENTION

We value bold, creative strategies that focus our efforts on possibilities yet unseen.





INTENTION

We proactively focus upon strategic activities and relationships, understanding the unique responsibilities placed upon us due to our physical location in the heart of a great city. We resist a haphazard approach to life and ministry.

We design our strategies within the boundaries of what is important to Jesus.

Jesus loves the Father, therefore we are a church of worship. Jesus loves the World, therefore we care about what happens outside our buildings to the ends of the earth. Jesus loves the Lost, therefore we reach out to those lost in sin, the hurting and the broken. Jesus loves the Poor, therefore we help the needy. Jesus loves the Church, therefore we love, build up, disciple and fellowship with one another.

PRESENCE

We highly value the presence of God while striving to walk in unity and harmony with one another.

PRESENCE

We know that without the presence of God, we are wasting our efforts, therefore we call upon the Holy Spirit to be present and active both in our lives and in our gatherings.

Knowing that God blesses certain settings with His glory, we choose to embrace on another.

We therefore celebrate diversity, where people can belong regardless of age, ethnicity, culture or background. We therefore honor one another without merit, choosing the believe the best about one another, being slow to speak, quick to listen, and eager to serve. We therefore choose to be united in our hearts and spirits, assured that no force in hell can tear an unified body apart. We therefore choose to stand with one another through both the joys and the sorrows of life, as well as through successes and failures.
