Who we are
City Lights Church Scranton is a non-denominational church located in North Scranton. We are followers of Christ. We may have different ages and backgrounds but we are united as sons and daughters of a loving God.
At City Lights Church we reflect a “three streams” approach in how we worship.
We take seriously God’s command to speak about and live like Jesus. We preach and teach from the Bible because we believe it is the inspired word of God, and our desire is for all people to enter into a saving relationship with Jesus.
We believe God is present and active among His people. We anticipate the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church for the conviction of sin, the illumination of truth, and the restoration of all things.
We value the longevity of historic tradition, the rhythms of the church calendar, the consistency of a lectionary-based teaching plan, and our connection to the global Church.
Our Mission in Scranton
City Lights Church exists to bring hope to the City of Scranton by demonstrating the love of Jesus.
Where we come from
City Lights Church was started in 2009 when a group of friends felt the Lord call them to bring hope to the city of Scranton. After being sent by their local churches, they planted City Lights Church in 2010. Our first service was in October of 2010 in a storefront in downtown Scranton. In 2012 we outgrew that space and moved to our current location in North Scranton.
Where we're headed
City Lights Church is always moving towards making Scranton look like Heaven. We want the people of Scranton to encounter the love of Jesus. We do this by creating a community of people that love worship, each other, and Jesus.
