About Us

Beach Service Music

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.
