Who We Are

As a church, we are a loving community who is centered around relationships. We value the relationships we hold with one another both inside and outside of our church walls.
Our church is blessed with a unique representation of individuals from many different backgrounds and multi-generational families who are deeply committed not only to one another, but also to Jesus Christ.
We have a rich history of serving the city of Peoria since 1925 and a bright future of continued ministry. We are a growing church that feels like a welcoming extended family.
