If you’ve ever wondered why missions exist, simply put: because worship doesn’t. There are billions of people living right now that have never heard the name of Jesus. That’s a problem and WE, the Church, are God’s solution. We are His means to reach the nations with the Good News of Jesus! God is a missional God and we don’t just go on mission because we’re supposed to, we go on mission because Jesus went on mission for us! Jesus left the comforts of heaven to come on a mission for us and we respond by leaving our comforts to live on mission for others. Citylight Lincoln is a family on mission to glorify God by multiplying Jesus-centered disciples and churches throughout our city and the world. Mission exists everywhere! In Acts 2 Jesus says to take His Gospel to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, & the ends of the earth! In our context, Jesus is inviting us to take the Gospel to Lincoln, Nebraska, The United States, & the ends of the earth! Therefore, we joyfully send local missionaries throughout our city and develop international partners to bring the gospel to the ends of the earth. Our dream isn’t to be a place with programs, but a family on mission for our city and world.
City Groups are our best platform for living on mission in our city. Doing life on mission is much more enjoyable and fruitful when we do it with others! Our City Groups work together to discern where the Lord is calling them and support each other along the way.
One of our primary missional focuses in Lincoln is the refugee population. There are displaced peoples from many nations coming to Lincoln in search of refuge and a new future. Many of them come from areas around the world unreached with the Gospel and God is graciously bringing them to our back yard! Our prayer is that we can offer them physical refuge in our city as well spiritual refuge in the only Savior, Jesus.

Revelation 7:9 gives us a glimpse of the future when people from every nation, tribe and language worship Jesus together. At Citylight we want to be a part of reaching those nations and peoples with the Gospel. As it says in Romans 10:14, “How then will they call on him in who they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching.” Would you consider joining us in bringing the Good News of Jesus to the world!
