Our Past


Virginia Beach is full of history, and Coast City is no different. The church originated within a home  in 1986 as Christian Chapel. By 1989, the church rented space in an elementary school.  Through miraculous events,  the church purchased a modular building in 1991; and after two years of hard work, the church began having services at the current address of Coast City in 1993. The church continued to grow, and in 2002 the vision for a new building began being put to action. The Lord’s hand stayed on Christian Chapel through the eight years it took to create and launch the current Worship Center in 2010. In 2021 Christian Chapel Changed its name to Coast City and now are looking forward to this new and exciting season!


Our Vision 


 We are here to Love God, Love People, and Make Jesus Known.


Our Mission


We are here to help people see and understand the truth ofGod, encounter the power of the Holy Spirit, walk in their calling,  and declare the love and good news of Jesus Christ.


Our Core Values 


Connect with Christ  (Prayer/Worship) 


Prayer and Worship are crucial in growing closer to God. We all are created to worship God. It is in our worship to Him that we can find our fulfillment and source of joy. Worship and prayer, both as acts and as lifestyles, are going to be fundamental parts of who we are as a church family. 

Psalm 100 : 1-2

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.


Care for Others  (Evangelism)


Evangelism is essential in a church community. We want to have a mindset that making Jesus known is vital for individual growth and for the growth of the Church. Whether it is supporting missionaries, serving in our community, going on a missions trip or making Jesus known to our circles of influence, evangelism is key for becoming who God wants us to be.

37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”


Create Community (Fellowship)


We strive to always have an environment where people feel accepted and welcome, a place where they will want to bring new friends and develop lasting relationships. Without developing a healthy community, we will not have healthy growth. We will have intentional awareness and welcoming attitudes to new faces.  In life groups, ministry opportunities, and Sunday service, we will create a community of love and support. 

24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


Cultivate Calling (Discipleship) 


Discipleship is fundamental in the Church. We will strive to teach The Word of God and utilize every opportunity for those attending to have a deeper understanding of God and what we believe as an Assembly of God fellowship. We want to see people know what they believe and why they believe it, so they will always have a firm place to stand in the storms of life, as well as the words to say when making Jesus known.  Through the Word of God and leading of the Holy Spirit, we are able to understand and develop our purpose and calling in following Jesus.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
