About us

City of Praise is a diverse, non-denominational Kingdom community of people who wholeheartedly embrace the entire Bible as the inspired, inerrant Word of God. We believe it was, is, and will always be relevant for all generations. 

 

We serve with the mission of people living their best life through spiritual, economical, social, and emotional development.  This is all centered upon the Bible and God-centered relationships.

 

We are convinced that a relationship-driven community will achieve programs far more effectively than a program-driven community trying to achieve relationships.  

 

We live out our purpose through the leading of the Holy Spirit and our motto, “More than a ministry, it is a way of life!”  

 

Our “About Us,” is really “About You!”
