About

CITYLIGHTS Church is a neighborhood church in downtown Long Beach.  We are a community of people who sincerely love God and desire to make a difference in our city.  Join us as we seek to impact our community by becoming a church that will be known, characterized, and set-apart by having an uncommon love for God, each other, and Long Beach.

Here is what you can expect at CITYLIGHTS:

FRIENDLY PEOPLE

At CITYLIGHTS, you’ll find real people – in other words, people just like you.  It is not about a building, a place, or an organization – our church is about people!  The people at CITYLIGHTS are friendly, warm, non-judgmental, welcoming, and loving.  Come as you are, and be yourself!

AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS

At CITYLIGHTS, church isn’t just a once-a-week event – it is about relationships! CITYLIGHTS is a place where you can make new friends, deepen existing friendships, and be loved and accepted as you are.  We know that authentic relationships are hard to come by, and that’s why we’re making them a big emphasis! (Ask us about our mid-week small groups)

FAMILY ENVIRONMENT

At CITYLIGHTS, we love kids!  Every week, we offer a Kid’s Program (birth through 5th Grade) during our 9:00 AM service.  Our team of dedicated teachers will prepare a fun and interactive program for the kids with stories, crafts, games, and snacks, all in a fun and safe environment.  We think your kids will love it!

RELEVANT TEACHING

At CITYLIGHTS, each week you will hear a creative message from the Bible that will easily apply to your life.  We want you to walk out of CITYLIGHTS with a greater understanding of God’s plan for your life.  If you are just checking out what Christianity is all about, you’ll easily understand what we are talking about.  If you’ve been a follower of Jesus for years, plan to be challenged in your faith.

ETHNIC/CULTURAL DIVERSITY

At CITYLIGHTS, we value people from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.  Long Beach is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in America.  We desire for our church to reflect the rich ethnic and cultural diversity that is unique to our city.
