Christian Mission


OUR MISSION | To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Faith and prayer have been at the heart of the YMCA since it was founded in London in 1844. The Y was founded on the verse John 17:21, which states:

That they all may be one, just as you Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

At the YMCA of Greater Charlotte, we believe in honoring our Christian mission, living our cause, acting in accordance with our values and placing the greater good above self. Our Christian mission compels us to love, serve and care for all in our community, in a manner that Christ would.



Pray for the Community

In James 5:16, the bible says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. We invite you to join us in prayer for our community.
