Alive Church

Our Purpose...

ALIVE Church (formerly known as Wesleyan Community Church) is a Wesleyan Church purposed on seeing a movement of disciple-making, leader-raising, and church-multiplying unleashed to reach the global mission field of Chicagoland and beyond. (A Movement of Multiplication - Acts 1:8) 

Our Vision...

… is to see a movement of lives Chasing God, Loving People, and Reaching Chicagoland with the LIFE of Christ.
(Living out the Great Commandment - Mark 12:30-31; Acts 2:42-47)

We believe that will look like reaching 300 people in the coming year and a new church being initiated in a surrounding zip code.

Our Mission...

...helping people find, follow, and multiply the LIFE of Christ throughout Chicagoland and beyond.
(Carrying out the Great Commission – Matthew 28:19-20; John 20:21)
