Who are we?
Citylight Church 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 six 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 2500 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 ever area of our ministry, message and methods. We are one church in two locations with one mission to multiply disciples and churches. We affirm the gospel coalition statement of faith, as well as the Christian Missionary Alliance Statement of faith.
Citylight is not a programmatic church, but has two primary ways of making and maturing disciples of Jesus. (1) We gather on Sunday to preach the Word of God, take communion and worship Jesus, and (2) we scatter into City Groups throughout the week to live as the church.
Why Two locations?
God birthed a vision in late 2016 as we were out of seats, parking, and had no room to grow at our Midtown location. The West location became a reality because of the providence of God and His Spirit leading the way. Additionally, we wanted to give people the best avenue to live on mission in their neighborhoods and networks, which is why we have two locations at Midtown and in West Omaha. We became one church in two locations as West was launched in February 2018. We have a rotating preaching team and value having a live preacher in the room to engage the congregation.
