History & Affiliation

City Church is a new church for the city of Asheville. In the early part of 2012, a few people started meeting weekly in the apartment of Duff and Kristi James for prayer, discussion, and dreaming of what God could do through us. From its first meeting, City Church has sought to grow into a vibrant congregation that seeks to reach the needs of the city.

Though a new church, it isn’t new in its beliefs and practice. City Church wholeheartedly embraces the historic Christian faith expressed in the ecumenical creeds of the universal church (e.g., the Apostles & Nicene Creeds).

We are also committed to the theological heritage of the Protestant Reformation as a member of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian church, one of the oldest denominations in America. Both the denomination and City Church are grounded in the historic Reformation theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith.
