Who are we?

Citylight exists to multiply disciples of Jesus and churches. In 2012, Citylight was planted by a small core team that wanted to see Jesus do a new work in Omaha. Over the past four years God has shown tremendous grace to our church family. Citylight has grown from a handful of people praying in a living room to a spiritual family of more than 1,700 people. Additionally, hundreds have met Jesus and been baptized. We are a gospel-centered church, meaning we allow the good news of Jesus Christ to shape every area of our ministry, message, and methods. We affirm the Gospel Coalition statement of faith, as well as the Christian & Missionary Alliance statement of faith.
