The current residence of this group is at 535 York Street in the heart of the Mission District, a few streets away from Potrero Hill Community Garden and San Francisco General Hospital. This article gives an overview of the Christian City Church San Francisco and its aims.

Early churches

Ps. Phil and Chris Pringle founded the Christian City Church International in 1980 on their arrival in Australia from New Zealand. They came with a vision to build a church and the Christian Centre Northside was the first incarnation of their vision. New churches Throughout the 1980s, their following grew and more and more churches opened as well as independent ones joining. A mission to open ten churches in ten cities throughout the world developed.
Churches in other countries Currently, Christian City Church International has 230 churches spanning the globe through North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Region. Aim The current aim is to see 1000 churches over the cities of the world by 2020.

Aims of C3

Emphasis The Christian City Church San Francisco is a non-denominational church whose emphasis is laid on connecting people from all kinds of lives, helping them in their transition towards God and to the paths and purposes they are destined for.
