In Williamsport as in Heaven

We are joining with Christ to transform Williamsport with the Gospel for the glory of God and the good of our city.

We are a family of missionaries who love Jesus and love our city.

We believe the church is meant to be the incarnated people of God in every neighborhood. Our desire is to see Christ's renewal in every corner of the greater Williamsport community. We gather on Sundays to celebrate Jesus as a family, but we live as the sent people of God throughout the greater Williamsport area through missional communities called City Groups.

OUR HISTORY

Our story began when God gave a vision to a handful of friends to plant a church in Williamsport, PA. In January 2012, six families began meeting for prayer and Bible study in the Sweetings’ living room. By March, that city group relocated to Alabaster Coffee in downtown Williamsport. In September 2012, we launched our worship gathering as City Alliance Church. Since then, our community has continued to be shaped by the Gospel, sought new ways to serve and bless our city, and have continued to see God’s faithfulness along the journey.

In 2015, we entered a partnership with First Baptist Church - one of Williamsport's oldest congregations. The people of First Baptist gave us the opportunity to make their historic facility our new home in the heart of our city for the good of our city. As we put our roots down in the heart of Williamsport, we’re overjoyed to become tethered to the history of local church in our city, and seek Gospel renewal in our city for generations into the future.

 
 
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. Now all the believers were together and held all things in common.
— Acts 2:42-47 CSB

As a local church, Jesus is building us to reflect Him as a people of:

 

TRANSFORMATION

JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING

We believe that Jesus is the hope of the world, and that through him, people will never be the same. We exist to see lives changed, culture redeemed & the city renewed by the Gospel. 

2 Corinthians 5:17

GRACE

GOD LOVES MESSY PEOPLE

There are no perfect people. We are all a mess apart from God’s radical grace, and this truth inspires us to live out the uncommon love and humility towards people that Christ displayed.

Romans 5:8

PRESENCE

THE GOSPEL CREATES COMMUNITY

As the body of Christ, we live as His faithful presence in one another's lives, our neighborhoods, and city where people not only see Christ in us but are invited to share in what He's doing. 

1 Thessalonians 2:8

RISK

THE SPIRIT EMPOWERS MISSION

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, and with a culture of prayer, we will do whatever it takes to help people meet Jesus and see our city renewed spiritually, culturally and socially.

Acts 1:8
