Our Services

What are services like?
We have 2 venues with services that overlap: Main Auditorium and Cafe. They are contemporary in style with passionate worship and a challenging, practical, and timely message.

What is the community like?
Champaign Urbana is very diverse due to the University of Illinois community. There are 120 nations represented from in various age groups. It is a very progressive, educated community and the technological development has earned it the nickname "Silicon Prairie."

What if I'm not a Christian?
In a world where so much emphasis is placed on image, we pursue something deeper. Following Christ isn’t a denial of reality but actually embracing it. Yeah, we get excited and passionate about our beliefs but that’s because He’s given us a lot to be grateful for. We weren’t designed to make it on our own. God is not some distant mythical figure but is active in our lives because He desires a relationship with us. In turn, we desire to connect with others in a caring and accepting environment. We love God and we love people…that’s it plain and simple. Our faith is not archaic and outdated but still applicable in our lives today. As we grow and mature, we discover how to make this message known to others and help them in their quest for truth and significance. All are welcome regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey.
