Beliefs & Mission

We are a church...a Network of households coming together in Christian fellowship to help each other find purpose and live on mission with Jesus.  Our vision is to create a Chicagoland where every person has as direct connection with a community of believers where they can experience Jesus.

We are wrapping our arms around Chicago and loving the city life in Christ!

In pursuit of our vision and mission we organize ministry around a simple 3G strategy.

We Gather.

Gathering is much more than coming together for weekend worship.  At CECN we understand our Christian faith  not only in terms of a personal relationship with Christ but as part of the community of faith, the body of Christ, the church.

We Grow.

Disciples of Christ can never assume that we have “arrived” in our knowledge of or intimacy with our Lord.  We seek to establish a rhythm of growth in all areas of our lives including relationships, faith, vocation, finances, and physical & mental health.

We Go.

Every life has a different journey.  We aim to allow Jesus to lead us along the path of life He intends for us as individuals, households, and as a congregation.  We want our personal and corporate life to be the bridge over which Jesus can cross to reach people and people can cross to meet Jesus.
