At City Vision Fellowship, we envision a movement of people coming to know Christ and being knit into a diverse community of believers. The Swearingen’s focused their 30 years of experience in discipleship and home church leadership by planting a church in Buffalo using a home church model. Their prayer is to see these “gatherings of believers” grow in number they as multiply to other neighborhoods throughout a city, loving God and loving their neighbors as they grow.

Meeting in Homes:
This allows for the body of believers to be small enough to love one another in close relationships. People truly experience the kind of loving community the New Testament speaks of as they can “…weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice”.

Community:

Home groups are a loving community of believers that intentionally crosses class, race and gender barrier to share life together and reach out to our neighbors. This becomes a great witness to the love of people that follow Christ.

Discipleship and Leadership Development:

Cell Groups
Smaller men and women’s discipleship groups allow for a more relational-based discipleship method. As time together centers on the truths of God, prayer and sharing life together, spiritual growth occurs and leaders are developed. Personal relational discipleship is often more “caught than taught”. Christ’s followers went with him to do ministry and heard his teachings

Ministry Houses
Ministry house are filled with single people of the same sex intentionally living life together with a commitment to see Christ revealed in every area of their life. Ministry houses allow for a unique opportunity to experience deep relationships and fellowship that goes beyond meetings. We now have one men’s and one women’s ministry house both located on the Westside.
