About

Cities for Christ

As an international evangelistic ministry our goal is to partner with local churches to provide an effective model to reach their communities with the Gospel. Our vision is to see entire cities and nations transformed through the power of unity, prayer, and evangelism. We believe that a unified church is crucial to the harvest that is coming.  We have witnessed the power of a united church and look forward to see God glorified through the message of His Son in every nation.

John 17: 21 ¨I pray that they will all be one, just as You and I are one—as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You. And may they be in Us so that the world will believe You sent me
