About Us



Our mission is simply to bring Life into our city, and to lead people into an all in relationship with Jesus.
At CityLife Church we have a burning passion to bring new life to downtown Wilmington and beyond. Our heart is to first and foremost bring those dead in sin to life in Christ, but we believe our mission goes beyond a one time experience with God. We want people to experience a whole new lifestyle in Christ. At CityLife we will never be contained by a building, our calling is to GO and make disciples and when they come, they will experience family, love, grace, they will experience Christ in us.

Missions in Nepal
This will be our second year traveling to Nepal for missions. Over the past couple years CityLife church has had the honor of partnering with Focus Tribes Mission. They have estimated that of their 30 million in population, that approximately only 2.5 percent of the population has been reached for the gospel. Their ministry is focused specifically on the tribes throughout Nepal. These tribal areas have many struggles from sex trafficking, hunger, clothing, schooling for kids and above all many heaven’t heard the good news of the gospel. Nepal is considered a hostile country when it comes to Christianity. It is legal to worship God if you were already a believer, but now they have a non conversion law. This law prohibits sharing the gospel, starting new churches, accepting Christ as Lord and baptisms. All of these things are unlawful and can result in punishment by the government. 
As a church, we believe the number one way we can help expand the missions work in Nepal is by financially sowing into their ministry. That is our number one way of coming along side of them. Our church has had the humbling opportunity to provide a roof for a house, our members currently sponsor 18 kids that we help put through school and provide essentials for , and we have also provided 10 clean water pumps for different tribes. Water pumps are not just a blessing because they provide clean water for those who wouldn’t have it otherwise, but it is also a great way for them to tell people about the living water. Serving others opens up the gateway for the gospel!
While giving is our primary way of helping, the word of God also says GO! So each year we take a trip to come along side our brothers and sisters and worship with them. This year (technically next year) our trip will be from January 8th-17th. While sowing financially helps them more than we can imagine, coming next to them on the battle field does something that money could never do. This gives us the opportunity to preach, witness, feed, meet our sponsored kids, visit the wells, and build relationships with people we now consider family. This trip we will also have the opportunity of providing 200 bibles to new converts.
The fruit from their ministry is plentiful, they are planting new churches, leading people to Christ, baptizing new converts and developing new leaders to take the mission further.
We still need to raise around $3,180 for this trip. That cost covers some of the travel cost involved, 200 Bibles, and meals for the different areas we visit. Please pray and consider helping financially with this missions trip. The seed that you sow will be falling into fertile soil!
