We are a community of Christ followers, who are devoted to being the church, not only on Sunday, but in the everyday rhythms of life—where we live, work, and play. 

Core Values

The core values of Citizens Akron are 

gospel, family, mission, for all people.


As a church of Jesus Christ, we exist to see the gospel holistically transform people, communities, and our city back to God’s intended purpose.

We aim to do this by being gospel-centered, disciple-making, and multi-ethnic.
