Vision & Mission
Vision: To be Light and Love to Hurting People
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
City Church AC has a weekly Mission:
* To understand God’s abundant Grace; to know I have been forgiven; to know I have hope; to Know God has a unique plan for my life.
* God’s grace will equip me to be light to those who are broken and
lost in my family, friends, and community; when I show Christ’s
love on a daily basis, I can lead them to Jesus.
17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
Our goal is to give 10% to local missions, with an end goal to reach 25% of all giving

Located in the inner city in the west Akron, Ohio community (House of the Lord), our purpose is to "educate children in the spirit of excellence" by intentionally targeting at-risk students and their families. We provide educational opportunities that allow every child the chance to pursue the American Dream, without labeling any child as a non-achiever just because he or she is disadvantaged.
