Who We Are

Church in the Word is a multi-ethnic, non-denominational, Spirit-filled church located in Elgin, IL, in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Our vision is to empower disciples who authentically represent Jesus.

We are a full-gospel, Spirit-filled church. We believe that the New Testament we read in scripture is the same New Testament that we’re living in today, and that the Holy Spirit is the same now as He was then. We believe the scriptures are inerrant, and being a disciple of Christ means the same thing today as it did thousands of years ago.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our vision for every worship gathering is to meet with God during worship, to learn from the Word of God, and to experience the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in a Biblical way. It is very easy for a ministry to sway to one of two extremes: focusing so much on doctrine that we forget the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, or focusing on the things of the Spirit and slipping away from sound doctrine. We prayerfully strive to maintain the balance that the Church displayed in the Book of Acts

What is the community like?
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING “I just want to say Thank You for this church, and all the amazing people in it. I starting coming about five years ago, and although my faith has grown slowly, God has been here and never given up … just like this church. Thank you!” “The church is filled with dedicated and loving people who truly want to know God and live in the faith community.” “The worship at this church is just fantastic.” “Week after week you can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. The worship is always good. The Bible is the main source of the preaching and teaching.” “I’ve been attending CITW for five years now, and my only regret is that I didn’t find them sooner!” “Great worship and family venues, kids love it, I love it, family loves it.” “There is definitely the presence of God in this church and it empowered me to make the changes in my life I needed to make.”

What if I'm not a Christian?
Our doors are open to everyone, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey.
