City Life Church is your safe place to explore the Christian Faith. Whether you are reconnecting with God or feeling a spiritual stirring for the first time, we invite you to take all the time you need to absorb the message of God’s grace from the Scriptures. Our worship services are designed to give you a full and balanced diet of Christian teachings, but also the space you need to be in process with the rich claims those teachings make on your life and our world.

The women and men of our Leadership Team are eyeing a 5-year vision of becoming a more and more inclusive and diverse community. This has and will continue to bring us to many hard conversations and decisions. We invite your input, questions, and participation in being spiritually formed with us. We recognize our need to listen to and learn from all of our neighbors from many cultural backgrounds, in order to be a true expression of God's beautifully inclusive family. This is part of our commitment to seeking God's justice by walking in solidarity with oppressed people near and far.

City Life began in Marc and Lisa Holland's living room in 2005, and launched Sunday worship services as a new church start of the Christian Reformed Church in 2007. Starting fresh allowed us to connect with the spiritual questions and culture of midtown Sacramento. We have normalized City Life as being a space where people come with different beliefs. Meanwhile, City Life's own teachings and beliefs flow out of the Christian scriptures, and the three creeds adopted by the worldwide church centuries ago: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.

In 2022, Pastor Marc retired from pastoral ministry. God has provided for our community during this season of transition, through interim pastoral care and thoughtful servant leadership. In June 2023, we began the search for a new pastor to lead City Life into our next chapter of ministry in Sacramento. We look forward to seeing the Hollands' legacy continue to bear fruit in the years ahead.
