We exist to see lives changed

through the lives of changed people.

Our Story

Church for us is more than just a weekend experience. It’s God’s people filled with light, illuminating the darkness in their circles of context and spheres of influence. We believe this light to be contagious and that it can impact others around us. Our testimony is a pivotal reminder of how that light breaks through even the darkest moments.

On Friday, January 21, 2005, an airplane carrying our pastor’s parents, who also served as the lead pastors of what was then Parkway Baptist Church, crashed killing everyone instantly. The devastation of this moment shook the foundation of our church to its’ core. Still, we believe God takes what was meant for evil and turns it for good.

He used this excruciating grief for His glory, setting in motion a divine plan that is helping transform our city one life at a time. Out of the ashes of tragedy, City of Truth Church triumphantly emerged by the grace and sovereignty of our Lord as a home of refuge, comforting the wounded with the comfort it itself had received from God.

Through engaging worship, relevant teaching, powerful prayer, and gracious community we are experiencing exponential growth both numerically and spiritually as a family of faith. Our unique story, even while birthed in agony, has offered us the great privilege of suffering with Jesus affording us the esteemed honor it is to celebrate with Him souls added to His body.
