God Belongs in My City started in New York City in 2009 when over 1,500 youth walked from North and South of Manhattan, meeting at Times Square and Grand Central Station to make their voices heard. That single event has transformed into an international movement that hosts hundreds of events each year.

 

God Belongs in My City's mission is to help Christians make a declaration of faith. The organization believes as Christ came and changed the world, Christians ought to impact their cities now. The goal is to help Christians fearlessly rise up as one, not collapse under the waves of this world, and help them carry forth the Gospel of Salvation.
