Bringing Christ to Chicago...
     Bringing Chicago to Christ.

 

Welcome to Edgewater Baptist Church!

Thanks for checking out our website. Please browse around our links to get a better idea of who we are and, more importantly, what God is doing among us.

Our passion is to be a church that is used by God to transform people’s lives through the power of the gospel and for the glory of Jesus Christ. Our vision for ministry here at Edgewater can be summarized by the following missional statement: “Bring Christ to Chicago. Bring Chicago to Christ”

This simply means that we strive to become more like Jesus Christ, as He transforms us by His Spirit and through His Word (the Bible) - so that we can live lives that reflect who Jesus is in our city. Our prayerful desire is that God might draw others to faith in Christ through our testimony of love, unity, and good deeds done in the name of Jesus, for the glory of God.

We are a multi-ethnic, multi-generational church located in Chicago’s Edgewater/Andersonville neighborhood. You’ll find that we proclaim the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ, unapologetically, in our God-centered worship services. Why? Because we recognize that it is God’s great love for us, demonstrated through the cross of Jesus Christ, that enables broken, imperfect people like us to experience life to its fullest.

We love Jesus. We love each other. And we love the city of Chicago. We’d also love to get to know you! We invite you to visit us on Sunday mornings for worship. Come as you are, and experience God’s great love for you, too.
