Who Are We?
We are 25 congregations in the Central and Southern
areas of Illinois, that are
part of a world-wide community of people who follow Jesus Christ,
the living creator and Savior of the World. We invite everyone
to become followers and friends with Jesus -- allowing Him to share and to help
guide their journey toward wholeness.
We're a People being Changed...
We follow a living Jesus Christ, who spoke to the
world in the past, who is active in our daily personal lives, and who continues
to call us BEYOND who we are, into a new, unfolding future -- even the kingdom
of God on Earth! Responding to God's creative call requires constant
growth for each of us.
And yes! Just as God spoke in ancient times,
God continues to speak today
to the world... Click on the links below to read (or listen to)
the most recent messages God has shared with the world through the Community of Christ,
as recorded in our book of Doctrine and Covenants:
