Cityline's connection with Parkcrest originally began in the mid 1960's when a few members and leaders from Parkcrest Church planted Lakewood Christian Church on its present location. The Lakewood Church was launched out of the desire to connect people to Jesus throughout Lakewood and it's surrounding cities. The church continued as an independent congregation until 2003 when Parkcrest Church came alongside the Lakewood church and added them as a part of Parkcrest Christian Church.
After several years and many attempts at fine-tuning the ministry experience and campus model of the now Parkcrest Lakewood campus, it was decided in 2010 that the campus would temporarily be closed for renovation and recalibraton. Following much prayer and significant discussions, Parkcrest felt led to re-open the campus with the vision of planting the campus as an independent church plant. On Easter Sunday 2011 the Lakewood site re-opened, continuing a relationship with Parkcrest Christian Church as part of their multi-site network.
In February 2012, Jack and Linda Sheets accepted the invitation to be the Lakewood Campus Pastors. As the church continued to learn, develop and reach into it's community, God began to grow it into a multicultural, multigenerational church, reaching people from various walks of life, through its three weekend services and various ministries that connect with people right where they are at.
On February 1, 2016 the Lakewood campus was officially launched as an independent church plant. The planting of this new church not only came with the recognition of it's legacy but also with it's new identity and renaming the church as Cityline Church.
The focus of the Ciyline Church is to love God and love people as we serve the communities of Lakewood, Bellflower, Cerritos, Atresia and beyond, through meeting various needs, and providing a safe place for anyone seeking to discover how to establish and maintain a personal relationship with God.
