The heart of City Church is to love God, love people, and love Asheville. Our love for God translates into a love for the Bible and a desire to apply God’s Word to our lives. Our love for people and the city translates into a desire to help others.
We are driven to do this by the historic Christian gospel: that we are more sinful and broken than we could ever imagine, but in Jesus Christ we are more loved than we ever dared to dream. We are rooted in the belief that the gospel is not only true and compelling, it’s also transformative. Therefore, the gospel of God’s amazing grace in Jesus Christ changes everything – ourselves, our families, our neighborhoods, our city, and our world. To that end, we strive to love God for who he is and what he’s done for us in Jesus Christ, and to love others as God has loved us, all while seeking to bring the transforming power of the gospel to bear on our city and the world.
These are our convictions. But regardless of your beliefs or doubts, City Church is a place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him in community with others in Asheville. We are here for those already persuaded to follow Jesus, and for the unconvinced. We are here for the lost and the found, the burned and the healed, the apathetic and the motivated, the bored and the excited, the cynic and the idealist.
We invite you, no matter your beliefs or doubts, to City Church. All are welcome.
