How it all started...

Citylight Lincoln Church was planted in 2016 with a prayer to see Lincoln deeply impacted by the Gospel and moved to go make disciples from our neighborhoods to the nations. In Matthew 16:18, Jesus promises to build His church and we've been able to watch Him do that! We know that every story we celebrate, every disciple made, every city group multiplied, every church planted, is all by His grace & for His glory (Psalm 115:1)

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden."

Matthew 5:14

Multiplying and Growing...

Ephesians 3:20 says that God "is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think" and we've seen this happen! Since 2016, over 300 people have been baptized, 3 new churches have been planted, and we've sent missionaries to some of the most unreached places in the world. Our City Groups continue to multiply and saturate new neighborhoods & networks in our city. Jesus is building His church!

meet the extended family!

The Citylight Family of Churches is made up of autonomous churches that share the same DNA, vision, and values. Like a family, each church is governed independently and has its own unique personality that fits its neighborhood, but is connected strategically and relationally with the other Family churches. We believe that God’s main mode of spreading the gospel is through the local church, and we have a vision to multiply disciples and churches across the Midwest and beyond.
