Following Christ to renew the city

With that mission, City Church has carefully sought to organize its ministries so that we can work together, by the power of the Spirit, to effect great change in San Francisco. To call the people of the city to be stewards of their power and gifts for the honor of Christ and the benefit of urban communities, City Church challenges Christians of the city not only to live within the city, but to serve.

City Church began in February 1997 and has grown to a congregation of around 1600 attendees, with around 1000 in weekly attendance. We partner with ministries throughout the city and the region ranging from homeless shelters and AIDS hospices and women's crisis centers. City Church is also active in new church development, globally, nationally, and locally. Within the Bay Area, City Church of San Francisco has begun new churches in San Rafael, Berkeley and Silicon Valley.

While City Church is still fairly new, it is not new in its beliefs and practice. City Church wholeheartedly embraces the historic Christian faith expressed in all the ecumenical creeds of the universal church (e.g., the Apostles and Nicene Creeds). It is also committed to the theological heritage of the Protestant Reformation as a member church of the Reformed Church in America, a denomination with roots back to the 1600's in America, and grounded in the historic reformation theology of the Belgic Confession, The Canons of Dordt, and the Heidelberg Catechism. The RCA's calling is be "the very presence of Jesus Christ in the world, a thousand churches in a million ways doing one thing-following Christ in mission, in a lost and broken world so loved by God."
