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:
