At City Light, everyone is welcome. There’s no dress code, no insider language, and no prerequisites. You’ll be greeted at the door, and inside our building you’ll find great coffee and easy connection. Our gathering starts at 10am.  They will last about an hour and we’ll spend time worshipping through song, learning from the scriptures, and building Christ-centered relationship with oneanother.

What do we believe?

We are so glad you asked. In short, we believe the Bible to be true. We believe that the Scriptures help us know God in a personal way. Our beliefs define who we are as a church therefore we hope you take the time to read through our statement of faith to see if what you believe is what we believe the Bible says.


What do you offer for my kids?

A nursery and toddler care will be available (birth – 5 years) to those with very young children that attend our services. We will also have a children’s class available for grades 1st–6th!

What do you believe?

We are an independent Baptist church, which means we are unaffiliated with any convention or official denomination. Generally speaking, we hold to a traditional and historic Christian belief. For a more detailed list of our doctrines visit our “What We Believe” page.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever you’re most comfortable in. You might see some who are more dressed up and others that come casual, but don’t let that hinder you from attending. Come as you are!

What should i expect?

You can expect some great music, a dynamic and practical Bible message from our pastor, and a community of believers who desire to do life together in Christ.


What is City Light all about?

The mission of our new church is to “Be the Light,” “Shine the Light,” and “Share the Light.” We are passionate about making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and everything we do is for the purpose of furthering this mission.
