Welcome! You Belong Here
We are The Community Church. We’re based on the north shore of Chicago, but deliver ministry worldwide.
Affiliation: An independent, non-denominational community church
Status: Federally recognized 501(c)3 charitable organization
Founded: Originally founded as a part-time ministry, “The Community Worship Hour” in 1999; became “The Community Church” in 2002
Membership: We do not have a formal membership process and do not ask participants to renounce their membership in other religious organizations
A Core Mission
We believe that churches exist in large measure to serve those outside their doors. For us, that’s taken us from our backyards to the Himalayas & Africa.
