Our Services

What are services like?
Services are about 1.5 hours, filled with prayer, scripture readings, expositiory Bible teaching, and a mix of music styles that focus on the message of the gospel. We celebrate communion and baptisms in our services regularly.

What is the community like?
We are a multi-cultural, multi-generational church located in Chicago’s Edgewater/Andersonville neighborhood. You’ll find that we proclaim the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ, unapologetically, in our God-centered worship services. Why? Because we recognize that it is God’s great love for us, demonstrated through the cross of Jesus Christ, that enables broken, imperfect people like us to experience life to its fullest. Our community is relational and grace-oriented. We genuinely love one another and care for our neighbors.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Welcome! We invite all to join us as we seek to learn from Jesus and find forgiveness and transformation in Him.
