Our distinctives are different from our doctrines. Doctrines are what we believe are essential to the Christian faith. Distinctives are where we land on specific theological issues that are not essential to being a Christian. There is room for disagreement around our distinctive, while maintaining shared unity and fellowship around the doctrines. We do not expect everyone at Citizens Church to embrace all aspects of these distinctives, but these convictions do shape how Citizens Church is led.
We hold to the central beliefs of the Christian faith, as communicated throughout Scripture and summed up in the ancient creeds of the Church.
Our mission is to enjoy God, love people and make disciples. We believe this sums up the Great Commandment and Great Commission.
Our values create a picture of a citizen that we all strive toward as a church: people of presence, honesty with honor, broken and beloved, beholding beauty.
