The church is instructed to make a difference by spreading the Gospel to all people. Jesus, as our example, showed us His focus when He announced His ministry:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” Luke 4: 18- 19 NIV.

The “church” are the people who attend church. a|CITY CHURCH believes that it is our clear mandate to follow Jesus and to do as He would do. Our community involvement is aimed at building & restoring relationships through practical methods as we do our best to bring hope and lasting change to people NEXT2ME.
