Welcome to Citizens

We are a church in downtown Los Angeles with the vision to be a city within a city, a community transformed by the gospel, living out the life of heaven here and now.

Jesus reminds us in the Sermon on the Mount that we are called to be “a city on a hill,” an alternative community marked by radical humility, love, compassion, and a genuine concern for our neighbors. We are reminded that this city isn’t our home and that our allegiances, values, and patterns of life should reflect our identity as citizens of heaven, an identity given to us by grace through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

New Here?

Being new to a church can often feel overwhelming. But whether you're new to Citizens or have been attending for a while and are looking for ways to get plugged in, we'd love to get to know you. Our Newcomers Form is a great place to start to let us know how we can get in touch with you and share some ways you can get plugged in.

Upcoming Events

Community is an essential aspect of our discipleship to Jesus. Some of the ways you can experience community are at Sunday Gatherings, through courses and discipleship groups, or at one of our fellowship events. Here are some of the upcoming events at Citizens you can join us for!

Prayer is the heartbeat of our relationship with God and we delight to be able to pray for each other (James 5:16). Pray with us by sending us your prayer requests and praise reports! We also host a monthly prayer and worship gathering called Abide on the first Friday of every month.


Our community would not be able to function without each and every one of our faithful volunteers. From the parking lot to the pulpit, our volunteers work together to create a welcoming space for our church to worship. Serving on one of our ministries is a tangible way you can embody the way of Jesus through love and service. If you are interested in joining a team, fill out an interest form at the link below!
