Who We Are
COMMUNITY’s Mission is helping people find their way back to God. We accomplish this by reaching people far from God, restoring God’s dream for the world, and reproducing this mission in others.
COMMUNITY is a church that began as the dream of 5 friends from college who wanted to create a place that would help people find their way back to God. Services were first held in the Naperville Central High School cafeteria, and 8 years later COMMUNITY launched its first additional location in Romeoville, IL. COMMUNITY’s vision is three-fold. To be: 1) An Impact Church – A church that will have a lasting impact on the people and places we engage. 2) A Reproducing Church – A church that will start new campuses and churches all over the world. 3) A Catalyst for a Movement – In 2001, COMMUNITY formed NewThing, a church-planting mission that now includes churches all over the world.
