Who We Are

If you are looking for a place to be loved, accepted and be a part of God's loving, eternal family and carry out the Great Commission, we'd like to invite you to worship with us.

We regularly see souls receive Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and get baptized. Our vision is to reach Lake County with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and transform our world. We believe that the Word of God has the answers for the challenges we face today and can transform lives. We believe every child of God is entrusted by God with some gift that he or she can use for His glory and the edification of His church. We believe “every saint a minister.” Only disciples, not Christians, can make a difference and make an impact in our culture.

Bob Parikh

Pastor Bob Parikh was born and raised in India as a Hindu in a high cast. From his childhood he could not reconcile the concept of many gods and goddesses and the theory of Karma and reincarnation in spite of his religious upbringing. In my search for Truth and the true God, he traveled all over India to many holy places and had personal meetings with the highest Hindu gurus for guidance and answers to my Spiritual quest only to be disappointed and come away empty handed with no answer and no hope of eternal life. His active search and prayers led him to many places, temples and gurus looking for answers to the basic questions of life – Where did I come from? Where am I going? What am I doing here? and search for the Truth and One True God led him to make a promise to God to surrender his life in His service if He showed me the Truth. Bob came to the United States to do post graduate work in Architecture. But the Lord had different plans for his life and answered his childhood prayers when he received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord & Savior. Pastor Bob is a graduate of Baptist Bible Graduate School of Theology in Springfield, Missouri. He has been a church planter and a Senior pastor in Illinois. In his 27 years of ministry he has also preached revivals, mission conferences and Pastors / Church leaders evangelism training in America, Dubai and India. His passion is soul winning and teaching the Word of God faithfully and uncompromisingly. Pastor Bob has been serving as a Senior Pastor since 2000.
