What We Believe

We are a Presbyterian Church U.S.A. congregation who united in 1969. In 1969 the United Methodist and Presbyterian congregations voted to unite in worship and work; heeding the advice of the Illinois Council of Churches we became a PCUSA congregation. The past 47 years have been full of blessings as we are grown together in faith.

Our worshiping community consists of individuals raised up in a variety of mainline denominations as well as independent, individual congregations. Our rich heritage of faith experiences has opened our worshiping community up to the work of the Holy Spirit as we learn to live together as the Body of Christ. Accepting God's call to become a community of believers we strive to live into our PCUSA heritage by living out the Great Ends of the Church:
1. the proclamation of the Gospel for the salvation of humankind
2. the shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God
3. the maintenance of divine worship
4. the preservation of the truth
5. the promotion of social righteousness
6. and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.

We extend an invitation for you to join us in our worship and work.
