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.
