SERMONS

Citizens gathers twice a month for a traditionally formatted worship service, but we mainly meet in homes, neighborhoods, bars, coffee shops, and other spaces to live out our vision of “A Family of Servant Missionaries.”

The sermons featured below are from our bi-weekly gatherings, as well as other churches where CJ has preached. Please feel free to listen, download, and share.

STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
From The Gospel Coalition

AUTHORITY

Citizens is under the direct and local authority of its three sending churches – Soma San Ramon Valley, Christ Church San Francisco, and Reality San Francisco. These churches have regular contact with the leadership of Citizens for accountability and oversight. The pastors of Citizens will submit themselves to the elders at each of these churches until enough time has been established for local Eldership within Citizens.

No one single person has final say at Citizens. The role of the leaders is to serve and shepherd the people of the church. The leaders only have authority that has been given to them, and it can be taken away. Please read our blog on Biblical Eldership for more details.
