Finding a new day in Jesus
Encontrando un nuevo día en Cristo

City of Light is a new church in downtown Aurora finding a new day in Jesus.

At City of Light, we want to help everyone to find a new day in Jesus, a new home in his church, and a new heart for our neighbors and neighborhoods. 

We are a church that is fully evangelical, fully sacramental, and full of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the power of Jesus to transform our lives, families, and communities through his church.
