ABOUT US

Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome at the Christian Church of Villa Park (Disciples of Christ). The Christian Church of Villa Park is a community of believers seeking spiritual nourishment through weekly worship and participation in the ministries of the church. We seek to support and affirm one another in our individual faith journeys.

We believe that each individual is called to a personal relationship with God which is nourished in the life of the church community. Each person, through Bible study and prayer, comes to a faith that sustains them through all of life’s joys and challenges.
 

Our Denomination . The Christian Church of Villa Park is part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of the United States and Canada. Each Disciples of Christ congregation is unique and governs itself, while being in relationship with the regional and general church.

Disciples of Christ welcome ecumenical partnerships. As a denomination, we engage in mission work both in the United States and overseas with the United Church of Christ.
 
Disciples Beliefs . The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) organized around a hope for unity in the midst of diversity. The foundation of the Disciples of Christ is our confession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The Disciples of Christ embrace differences in belief and practice, with the understanding that there are many ways to worship and serve the Lord.
 
Communion . Each week during worship we gather around the Lord’s Table to remember the promises that Christ gave to his disciples and to us at the Last Supper. The Lord’s Supper is the center of Disciples of Christ worship. We also have a weekly sermon, hymns, prayers and readings from the Scriptures.
 
Baptism . We practice believer’s baptism by immersion. People who are ready to confess their faith do so, then enter into the water to be freed of their sins and to receive God’s grace. If you were baptized as a child, we practice the act of Confirmation of Baptism.
 
Our History . The Christian Church of Villa Park organized in 1957 and began worshipping together in various sites around Villa Park. Our current building, at the corner of Villa and Riordan, was built in 1959. The church has changed through the years to reflect the needs of the community. In 1990 we began a Food Pantry which has grown to serve almost 1,000 people each month. Every summer since 2002, some of our members have gone on a week-long mission trip to different sites around the United States to serve God in a different environment.
 
Our Vision . We seek to be faithful witnesses of God’s love in worship, community service and spiritual growth.
 
God has blessed us for many years and we hope, you may be equally blessed by joining us for worship and becoming part of this community of believers. We remember Jesus’ Commandments: To love the Lord with all our heart and soul and mind, and love one another as ourselves.
