And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
— Matthew 28:16-20

At City Church, we believe that missions is not the ultimate goal of the church; worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t.

This means that the reason we are involved in missions is because we desire to see people worship the Triune God.

How do we participate in God’s mission?

God’s mission is local

At City Church, we articulate our participation in God’s mission through our “who we are” statementWe are broken people loved by God, continually restored by Christ, and sent out to worship God, serve Richmond, and work for its renewal.

It is because we have experienced the saving grace of God that we are engaged with him in his mission in the world.

We are a community of people who have tasted the Grace of God in Jesus Christ and are learning to share this grace with our neighbors in Richmond.

God’s mission is global

At City Church we believe that God’s grace sends us out into the world to make known the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection. One of the ways we do this is by supporting people who are already doing this in Richmond, in the United States, and around the world. City Church financially and prayerfully supports a number of partner ministries and organizations.

City Church supports the following people and works. For more information on these organizations—including prayer needs and volunteer opportunities—please click the button at the button of this page for our informational/prayer guide.
