City to City Europe is a trans-denominational network of urban churches and church plants committed to fostering a movement of the gospel in the cities of Europe. City to City Europe is strongly connected to Redeemer City to City.
The following values unite us:
We believe that the biblical gospel of grace is essential to the salvation and transformation of people and cultures. An ongoing experience of the Gospel is the driving force in all of life, work, and ministry.
We are committed to the city because God is committed to the city. Cities are strategic places for gospel ministry and should receive missional priority at this point in history.
We are committed to pastoring and planting contextualised, urban churches that multiply.
We believe that the Bible compels churches both to proclaim the gospel in word and to live out the gospel in deed: seeking justice, loving mercy and promoting truth and righteousness.
We aim to be a network that raises up church planters indigenous to various urban cultures, able to understand their setting, and effectively to apply the gospel to it.
City to City Europe is a fellowship of Christians who accept the revelation of the triune God given in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament and confess the faith of the Gospel therein set forth. They assert the following doctrines which they regard as crucial to the understanding of the faith, and which should issue in mutual love, practical Christian service and evangelistic concern:
The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption, final judgement and consummation.
The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen humanity, making it subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin, and from its eternal consequences.
The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.
The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
The priesthood of all believers, who form the Universal Church, the body of which Christ is the head, and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world.
The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ, in power and glory.
