Mission (Our Purpose)

Becoming Christlike…Proclaiming Christ

Matthew 26:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We want to make disciples that make disciples. A disciple follows Jesus in pursuing to grow in becoming more like Him every day. As we pursue our growth in this area we seek to tell others the good news of who Christ is and the new life He offers.

Vision (Our Plan)

To be a lighthouse in Roscoe Village, Chicago, and The World.

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

We SHINE the light of the Gospel with our words and in our actions;


We WELCOME anyone who is searching for a place of rest; 

We SEND people out to follow the calling of God in their lives. 

Values (Our Passions)

Loving God and Loving People, influences everything we do.

Mark 12:30-31 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 

Bible Centered Preaching/Teaching: We love scripture and want everything we do to be grounded in it.

Intentional Community: We love the gift of relationships. We believe that community is built by each individual person choosing to engage in meaningful relationships. 

Multi-Generational Relationships: We love that God has granted to our congregation people representing multiple generations. We celebrate this reality through all of our events and ministries.

Devotion to Prayer: We love that God has given us through prayer 24/7 complete and total access to himself in order that we would bring all things to him. And that’s what we want to do.
