"THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND BLOOD,
AND MOVED INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD."
-John 1, The Message
Welcome to City Church Long Beach.
We love Jesus and we love our city. We believe Jesus was already at work to bring renewal, peace, hope, and transformation to Long Beach long before our church started, and he will continue to do so long after we are gone—we simply want to join him in what he is doing here and now.
City Church Long Beach is a radically welcoming community on a journey towards Jesus, joining him in the renewal of all things.
We hear and respond to Jesus's call towards wholeness.

This is how we live out our vision:
Radically Welcoming Community: Jesus invites people of every race, gender, orientation, ability, class, religious background, and moral history to his common table. As we come to that table each week, we seek to build a diverse community, centered around the person of Jesus. All are welcome and valued here.
Journey Towards Jesus: Jesus stands at the center of our community, and we are all on a journey towards him. We work to create safe spaces for people to move towards Jesus at their own pace and with their own questions.
Renewal of All Things: The work of Jesus on earth was to heal and restore that which was distorted and damaged. As a church we are called to join with him in continuing that work in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities. Our response to his call is to serve our communities in thoughtful and practical ways.
