Center City Church is a Christ-centered church in Uptown Charlotte, NC.

We are a community of imperfect people that are learning how to carry out, embody, and share the perfect message of Jesus in our community. We long to be a welcoming place for you to explore and express your faith.

Maybe you are a lifelong follower of Jesus. Maybe you have decided to give church a chance again. Maybe you are simply exploring matters of faith. No matter where you stand in your relationship with God, you are welcome here, and we would love to join you in that journey.

Messages Online

Our desire is to help you explore matters of faith, and grow in our relationship with Jesus (no matter where you are at on that journey). Every message begins with a passage of Scripture. We work through that passage, gaining understanding of what the Bible is saying. We move toward practical application, and then show how each passage points back to Jesus as the Lord of our lives. At the end of every service, our entire church family is invited to partake in a time of worship and a shared time of communion as we reflect on what the Holy Spirit is saying to us, individually and as a churh family. 

Messages from Center City Church are posted here weekly. If you miss a week, you can always catch them online. If you have enjoyed a message, you can share this link with a friend to pass it on.
