We are unashamedly a Christian church, meaning simply that we live, teach, and follow in the way of Jesus Christ, who is the center of it all. Our teaching and mission stem from who Jesus was, is, and will be, as well as what he did, does, and will do. This culminates in what we call the gospel: the riches of the grace of God available because of the sacrificial death of Jesus for sinners. We place our highest value on his grace that we have received and desire to give to others.
We are a family on mission for the good of the city. While we are rooted in the Central West End and consider it home, we work for the good of the entire St. Louis metro area. At Christ City Church we hold a positive, balanced, and Biblically rooted view of the city. We see the city as a great and strategic place to live (go to school, raise a family, work, etc.) and serve today. We see its potential for flourishing and everyday life.
We are simply “those called together”. Church is not a building or a service but a community that is measured and shaped by authenticity. Community like this takes demonstrating love in and as the church, marked by humility and confession, listening more than talking, and mirroring the ring of selfless love that exists between the Father, his Son, and the Holy Spirit, as a new family.
